In this podcast the co-writers of ‘Pure and Right’: musicians Jenny Reeve and Jill O’Sullivan aka Bdy_Prts, and Mark Holloway (Acting) Head of Operations HMP Inverness share the ideas and experiences that shaped their song. The co-writers are currently living far apart in New York, Glasgow and Inverness, so the podcast was constructed out of phone-recorded answers given by each collaborator to questions asked by Distant Voices research associate Phil Thomas. The song was an unusual collaboration in that the co-writers were brought together to make the song by Vox Liminis. In both the song and the podcast, despite an initial distance, shared experiences emerged which resulted in this beautiful, bittersweet song.
Pure and Right is the 6th song to be released from ‘Not Known at this Address’, the debut LP from the Distant Voices project. It was recorded in Chem19 during January 2018, and released on 25th May 2018.
