The crisp, cool gray days of fall have finally arrived in Ohio. Typically when this happens, I’m left searching for a musical companion for the calm and contemplative days that this weather brings with it.
In The Mountains & The Trees, I have found the tunes I was searching for. This Canadian folk rock band is technically a one-man show. That man is Jon Janes, who has a knack for melding lovely banjo melodies and subtly woven effects to create songs that whip in with the chilly breeze and send shivers up one’s spine.
I say TM&TT is technically a one-man show because Janes is typically joined by other talented singers and musicians when he records. This time, his main partner is Jillian Freeman, who adds a wonderful feminine touch to many of the songs on I Made This For You, the band’s most recent album. Freeman’s contribution is credited as “vocals/guitar/handclaps.”
