Feel Good Friday: Wendy Jans doing “Say Say Say”

Friday, July 31st, 2009

For anyone who doesn’t know Wendy Jans, she’s an incredibly talented singer and songwriter here in Nashville, and she’s one of the first people Karsten and I met in town six and a half years ago. She’s done vocals on one of our demos, and has been a fun person to watch grow and gain momentum. Here she’s recorded a home acoustic performance of “Say Say Say” and I think you’ll like it as much as I do.

Song demos up on

Saturday, November 8th, 2003

I spent a good chunk of time this morning updating, and specifically linked several demos to the Songs page. Since I mentioned to some folks I saw a few weeks ago that I would be sure to send a link to some MP3s of our Nashville demos, I thought I’d go ahead and post it here.I only got three songs added (one was already there), so here’s what’s up there right now:

  • Get It Wrong, a pop-py tune we co-wrote with our friend Lair Morgan. The demo is sung by Dawn Martin.
  • Traces of You, a slow- to mid-tempo ballad. Demo sung by the lovely and incredibly talented Wendy Jans, who is also a wonderful songwriter.
  • You’ve Lost Me, a sorta raucous country-bluesy tune. Sung by Susan Clinton, who happens to manage Bayou Studio — where we recorded the demo.

And there’s also Mango Sun, which is a reggae tune we demo’ed in Chicago last year and pitched last August for a film placement. Nothing ever came of it, but some of our friends have told us stories of waiting more than 18 months to hear news on a pitch, being sure it was dead, and then getting a cut. So I guess ya never know.

Another demo done: Traces of You

K&K were back in the studio today recording a demo of “Traces of You.” K&K were excited to work with Wendy Jans for the vocals. Wendy recorded lush, exquisite vocals with superhuman speed and accuracy. The end result is much richer for it. Thanks, Wendy.
