PREMIERE: Americana Standouts Michael Logen, Lizanne Knott, and Jesse Terry Team Up On “Why You Wanna Break My Heart”

Keeping up with great series of premieres post-Thanksgiving, we are pleased to team up with a trio of talented artists who have come together a fantastic record filled with both originals and great renditions to some of the best Americana songs out there – in this occassion, we are premiering an original song by the great Lizanne Knott titled “Why You Wanna Break My Heart,” an instant classic that blends both the best of the 60s Folk era with a much modern twist.

Every situation in life is made better when friends come along for the ride—and for three of Americana’s most sought-after artists, who also happen to be great friends, the result is the “effortless and inspiring” connection heard on the 5 stunning covers and 6 original songs of their new collaboration.

Sunset Avenue Sessions, releasing November 30th on Transoceanic Records, combines the award-winning talents of Michael LogenLizanne Knott, and Jesse Terry, with each artist trading off vocal duties with an easy feeling of camaraderie throughout.

The choice of covers included on the album is an invitation into the American songbook—and the musicians’ inner circle—exposing to fans their wide range of influences and interests across genres.

The nuanced original songs on Sunset showcase the expressive and melodic depths of the artists individually, in their respective spotlights, with a soothing variety of textures. Logen contributes his lyrical stunner, “Already Home,” adding an additional layer of warmth and soul to the collection. The elegant “Caroline” by Knott offers a sophisticated complexity. And another inner-circle friend and special guest, acclaimed singer-songwriter Dar Williams, accompanies Terry on one of his most beautifully crafted songs, “Stargazer.”

The decision to record as a trio bounded directly from their years of friendship and the many shows they’ve played together. “Working with Lizanne and Michael always inspires me, stretches me out musically and makes me want to explore new roads in my own songwriting, Terry explains. “We’re all very different artists, but there is a great synergy when we come together.”

“I’ve always been a huge fan of my talented friends,” Knott says of Terry and Logen. “When the opportunity presented itself for us to put a record out together, I was of course on board! We just know each others’ vibe, and stylistically work well together.” As for Logen, he agrees working as a trio felt “natural” to him, due to their tight bonds. “We had a great time recording it,” he enthuses.

While all three artists are quite separate from each other in their sound and focus, they all share a love of storytelling as songwriters and acclaimed performers.
