FAT POSSUM RECORDS SET TO RELEASE THE PERPETUAL GRACE, LTD, ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK BY THE JONES SISTERS
THE JONES SISTERS INCLUDES MEMBERS OF GUIDED BY VOICES, IRON AND WINE AND THE AUTUMN DEFENSE
Fat Possum Records is announcing the release of Perpetual Grace LTD today, the soundtrack to the show of the same name helmed by Bobby Bare Jr. (Guided By Voices) and Steve Conrad, screenwriter (Amazon’s Patriot) and musician, who, together with Iron & Wine guitarist Jim Becker and The Autumn Defense bassist Brad Jones, recorded an album of originals under the name The Jones Sisters to soundtrack Conrad’s new show, which premiered this past Sunday. The first single, and theme song for the show, “Comet” is out now with Conrad saying “The Jones Sisters’ “Comet” explores Perpetual Grace LTD’s theme of the great power of intimacy + time.”
The Jones Sisters recordings will be featured in the new series for the Epix original series, Perpetual Grace LTD, comprising all the original songs for the series and will be released as an album later this summer through Fat Possum Records and MGM Television Entertainment. The series from Epix “follows James (Emmy® award nominee Jimmi Simpson), a young grifter, as he attempts to prey upon Pastor Byron Brown (Academy Award® winner Sir Ben Kingsley), who turns out to be far more dangerous than he suspects. The pastor and his wife Lillian (Academy Award® nominee Jacki Weaver)—known to their parishioners as Pa and Ma—have used religion to bilk hundreds of innocent people out of their life savings.” (Epix)
The Jones Sisters record the majority of their music in Nashville at Alex the Great Studios while exploring the imagery and themes of the series with the filmmakers. The recording is overseen by band member and engineer Brad Jones. Some tracks also feature guest vocals from Nashville gems Carey Kotsionis and Lillie Mae Rische (Third Man Records). The band also features drumming by Jon Radford (Nashville session drummer) and Doni Schroader (…And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead). To hear any upcoming tracks from their release “The Jones Sisters: The Original Songs of Perpetual Grace, LTD,” watch Perpetual Grace LTD; on Epix Sunday nights, and on the Epix streaming app.
