Red Jumper

by Jess Hall

(produced by Mechkov)

Mechkov had known Jess pretty much all her life, but didn’t hear her sing until a Christmas get together in 2010. He immediately began badgering her to record some of her ‘little songs’ in his studio.

His initial ideas of elaborating Jess’ arrangements with a variety of sounds and percussives were quickly quelled by Jess who wanted the sound to be as pure and simple as her live performances. He even had to fight to use reverb and delay on Jess’ voice – a battle he finally won.

The only other added ingredient Jess would allow is the mellifluous cello of Barney Morse Brown (Duotone), which was recorded in Barney’s personal studio in Oxford and relayed to Mechkov’s Fusion Studio in Marlow via ftp.

This resulting mini-album, Red Jumper, cemented Jess into the folk scene, particularly around her adopted home of Oxford, and has since seen her grow in musical stature and reputation, featuring regularly on regional radio and attracting the attentions of various industry people who would love to have their names attached to hers in some way.

Red Jumper was recorded and produced during 2011.

May 2013 saw her finish recording her second album at Barney’s studio, the two of them being joined by indie-folk climbers, Stornoway’s mutli-instrumentalist John Ouin.
