MORE ABOUT AQUARELLE:
In the summer of 2017, Jesse's frequent collaborators Will Graefe (guitar) and Jeremy Gustin (drums) were playing a festival in Vilnius, Lithuania and thought it would be fun to record an album with him in Lisbon, Portugal with their mutual friend Ricardo Dias Gomes. Jesse had never been to Lisbon so he set to work. In the weeks leading up to the recording, he wrote some new material, such as "Out of Time," a sort of fusion between an ESG-type beat and Tropicalia, which not only he finished two days before the session but was the first song recorded at the studio (the band had never even heard it); "Rolling By," a lyric of hope and warning over music of Bossa-meets-60s-English-Rock; and "Carousel," a moody instrumental named for the traditional Portuguese restaurant where the band and recording engineer would eat lunch every day.

Says Harris, “Though Will, Jeremy and I play together often, the addition of a new element in Ricardo on bass (who is from Rio and has played for years with one of my idols, Caetano Veloso), combined with the inspiration of Lisbon, brought out a sort of exuberance, light, and rhythm that I don't think we would have found in New York.”

Back in New York, and later on in LA, Harris invited friends to add overdubs of keyboards, vocals, strings, and horns. Valerie June makes a special guest appearance to duet on "Listen To The Wind." Petra Haden sings harmonies on "Grapes Grow Sweeter In The Sun" and “Eyes Of Fire.” And Sophia Brous (Exo-Tec, Dream Machine) duets on the Exotica-inspired "Never Say Goodbye" and layers rich vocal arrangement on the jouncy "Sometimes You Have To Choose Sides." Other guests include Rob Moose(strings) and CJ Camerieri (horns), both of whom play in the group yMusic, and keyboardists Jason Lader, Jesse Carmichael and Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman).  

Why the title Aquarelle? An aquarelle is a watercolor, but it also suggests lightness, color, liquid. The lyrics of the songs have a sunniness minus the glibness, the overall effect of which is what one might call a "feel good record." Even its moments of darkness, such as the gloomy "Sunday" ("You shouldn't have left on a Sunday/ cause Sunday is the loneliest day of all") are suffused with a kind of a underlying hope - in this case the tacit suggestion that tomorrow is Monday and something new may come along.

Shirt Size Chart

Our Unisex shirts are Bella+Canvas 3001 standard fit. Women's shirts are Bella+Canvas 6400 Relaxed Fit.

Expect about 5-7% shrinkage after normal wash. Wash warm, dry low. Although you should not expect any significant fading, wash colors separately from whites, especially on the first wash. We've noticed the printing seems to last longer if you wash the shirt inside-out.

Web colors are approximate and may vary slightly from actual shirts. Each shirt is a unique piece of art. There will be slight variations in color and ink saturation from shirt to shirt.

Our Shirts are printed by the nice people at Ink Tank Merch in Omaha, Nebraska. We highly recommend them if you ever need screen-printed merchandise for your band or organization.
