Lizanne Knott, Jesse Terry, Michael Logen (from the album Sunset Avenue Sessions on Transoceanic Records)
The trio of musicians that entered Sunset Avenue Studios brought along favorite tracks to cover as a well as a satchel full of originals from Lizanne Knott, Jesse Terry, and Micheal Logen. A reverential hush tells the story of “Ocean Floor” when Michael Logen whispers the vocals of his tune while Lizanne Knott takes the lead on her song “Caroline”, and Jesse Terry spins on his cut, “Dance in My Own Shoes”. The trio adds a member when Dar Williams joins Jesse Terry on “Stargazer”, the track a co-write for the pair as a rock rumble guides the steps into a corner bar as Lizanne Knott asks “Why You Wanna Break My Heart” and Michael Logen sings with satisfaction as he cherishes the things he already has in “Already Home”.
The choice to record as a trio is an extension of the threesomes long-standing working relationship as well as their friendships. The Americana community is a gathering of music fans as well as performers, and Sunset Avenue Sessionscasts a light into the personal collection of the artists involved in the recording. Lizanne Knott joins Michael Logen in tributing Pink on “Try” as Michael asks questions still fresh on the Buffalo Springfield tune “For What It’s Worth” and Jesse Terry takes the vocals on Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire”. Lizanne Knott wanders through “Wildflowers” with Jesse Terry and Michael Logen singing harmony on the Tom Petty track while Sunset Avenue Sessionssticks by Tom with a tune from The Heartbreakers as the trio on the album cover take flight in “Learning to Fly”.
