Well, this is awkward. Back in October, we had an awesome duo by the name of The Saint Johns
come into the Baeble office for a session. After they showcased their incredible harmonizing abilities
, we sat down for an interview and I thought it would be funny to - as a joke
- ask them if they ever planned on splitting and going solo. Louis Johnson said no while Jo Meredith, well... She said it was a possibility. We nervously laughed it off and assumed she was kidding but alas, here she is, 7 months later, handing over her new solo project under the name of Sad Penny
. And it's fucking awesome.
Twangy, bright guitars and Jo's pure vocal create an open sonic space. It's beautiful and ethereal and honestly, we're just getting downright Fleetwood Mac vibes. "I fucked over my ex-boyfriend and there was a weekend where I felt bad about it," Meredith says of the song. Well, I guess something good came out of that moment of regret. We're looking forward to hearing more from the Nashville-based songwriter.
