The captivating trio, I’m With Her, recently recorded and filmed their first original song, “Little Lies,” in United Recording’s renowned Studio B. The group is comprised of three singers: Sara Watkins, violin; Sarah Jarosz, banjo, mandolin and guitar; and Aoife O’Donovan, guitar.
“We wrote ‘Little Lies’ in the hills of Echo Park in L.A. in May,” says Watkins. “Three days later, we recorded the song at a historic studio on Sunset Boulevard. This is the first original song we are releasing as a band.”
The track was written and produced by the band, recorded and mixed by Jason Wormer and the video was shot by Todd Cooper.
The trio, which came together in 2014, last toured in 2015, and garnered tremendous acclaim for their unique blend of instrumental interplay and indelible harmonies. Jon Pareles, a pop music critique for The New York Times, praised their “distinctive voices,” noting “Ms. Watkins’ plaintive clarity, Ms. O’Donovan’s tremulous warmth [and] Ms. Jarosz’s hint of bluesiness. But when the three women sang together, their voices became one instrument, sharing every breath.”
This summer, I’m With Her will join Punch Brothers and Julian Lage for the inaugural American Acoustic tour. Watch the video to learn about the band and their current tour: http://www.imwithherband.com/
