Russell Jeanes is a songwriter with a love for forest, leaf and hedgerow.
Over many years Russ squirrelled away a collection of poems, melodies, bird song and drawings. Morning's first breath in the trees, swans & geese in morning mists, chance meetings with fox, deer and weasel, 'the secret life of nature'.
Working from home in a cottage in the Yorkshire woods, Russ records demos and uploads them to the sound cloud.
The songs are re-recorded in homes, gardens & summer fields across Europe & America by an enchanting collective of female DIY artists, each lovingly chosen for their beautifully unique voices.
Jeanes sound has been kindly been likened to: Vashti Bunyan, Linda Perhacs, Joanna Newsom, Nick Drake.
