"Tucson Folk Festival Update"

Of course, with 130 acts, there were plenty of outstanding shows to see, and I would be remiss if I did not tell you of the superb job my friends “JC & Laney” did on the stage at La Cocina – Old Town Artisans. That’s my favorite of the festival venues. Even though they can sit well over 100 people, it still feels intimate and the audience is close to the stage. JC Scott & Laney Greynolds were joined by their producer Steve Wood on piano and it really “filled out” their sound. Not that they needed it. Their vocal harmonies blend like golden honey. And JC’s songwriting is excellent (“Every time I feel my heart on fire, You’re at the end of the flame”). Good stuff.

The Xtreme Bean offers many pleasant surprises, but earlier tonight was the topper for me thus far, by far. My intention had been to stop in just long enough to grab a decaf, but when I heard these two people I changed my order on the spot to an espresso. I knew I’d be there listening to them for a long while, and now I’m here at home writing about them for a little while longer, still listening to them on their latest CD, Heartbreak & Paradise.

During a break Laney Greynolds (pronounced like Reynolds plus a G) told me that she and JC Scott have only been performing together for a couple of years, but I told her they sound like they’ve been together for a lot longer than that. JC said I should hear them in a more acoustically friendly venue, and I certainly plan to do that, but they could make a wrecking yard sound like a backup band. Their individual voices are very good, but in harmony they’re… well, heartbreaking, and as for paradise, we Zensters don’t necessarily believe in that. But we don’t necessarily rule it out either, and JC & Laney have now become part of the reason I personally don’t.

JC invited me to give them a call anytime, and I’ll probably do that tomorrow (actually, later today). I have many questions to ask them, and will no doubt be updating this post after the interview. - The Garden of Ezen

"JC & Laney"

JC and Laney have been in the local music scene for some time — mostly apart. JC caught up with Laney through the musical grapevine relatively recently and the duo hit it off instantly. It wouldn’t be tough to guess that if you sat in for a performance (like, say, the one here): Their harmonies are reminiscent of classic Fleetwood Mac or Simon & Garfunkel, beautiful and masterfully done, while JC’s guitar-work provides the perfect accompaniment. - SPM Acoustic - Arizona State University
