2017 release. Fifteen is the first recording in six years from contemporary folk's most popular group, The Wailin' Jennys. An entrancing collection of cover songs, it includes tunes by Tom Petty, Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton, and is their first new music since 2011's acclaimed album, Bright Morning Stars. For founding members Nicky Mehta and Ruth Moody, along with longtime member Heather Masse, Fifteen celebrates a 15-year musical partnership that has resulted in four award-winning studio albums and one live recording on Red House Records, three of which landed the trio on the Billboard charts, while garnering the band a worldwide fanbase. All three band members sing and play a variety of instruments (acoustic guitar, accordion, banjo, ukulele) to create a shimmering tapestry of rich vocals and instrumentals. Additional musicians include Richard Moody (Ruth's brother), Sam Howard, Adrian Dolan and Adam Dobres. Produced by The Wailin' Jennys, Fifteen is a gorgeous feather in the cap of the band that has thrilled millions of listeners to A Prairie Home Companion radio

I only wish they had put a few more tracks on the CD (especially after teasing us with new songs in their Spring/Summer 2017 Tour, like Heather Masse's fun "When I Was A Cowboy" and Ruth Moody's beautiful "The Spell of the Lilac Bloom"), but I also understand that finding time to record together while juggling other performing careers and raising young families is difficult. I'm grateful for what they have shared and hopeful that they will continue to make their delightful sounds together for another Fifteen years!
I've also heard/read that Ruth Moody, the Jennys' multi-instrumentalist soprano with a voice straight from Heaven, may be putting together a new studio album. Something else to dream about and hope for! While we wait, go check out her earlier efforts, The Garden (2010) and especially These Wilder Things (2013).
I read that they are veterans of A Prairie Home Companion, but I lucked on to them through Pandora several years ago. I was enchanted by the album Bright Morning Stars from 2011. While some may be disappointed that Fifteen is an album of covers, Tom Petty fans will feel really touched by the way layered vocals pay tribute to his legacy in "Wallflowers."
As well, I was particularly moved to put on repeat "Light of a Clear Blue Morning" and "Loves Me Like a Rock."
