The Blue Herons is the second musical project from Switzerland based musician Andy Jossi, and this isn’t the first time we’ve reviewed The Blue Herons, for more click here. I’ve also reviewed his first music project, The Churchhill Garden as well and you can check out those reviews here. After initially being a solo project, with occasional featured artists such as Krissy Vanderwoude and Thierry Haliniak, Andy decided he needed another voice for The Blue Herons, and eventually came across Gretchen DeVault and liked what he heard, so he reached out seeking a collaboration, and thus The Blue Herons expanded. Today I will be reviewing their latest release ‘In The Skies’ which dropped on October 25th 2020.
‘In The Skies’ opens with nice ambient guitars, and light percussion that picks up in energy as the track progresses, Gretchen’s vocals are equally a treat, strong and clear and in sync with the almost happy dreamlike quality of the instrumentals. This soft, almost muted track, still manages to pack an emotional wallop as you just experience it. This is one of those tracks that starts off good, but just gets even better with repeated listened, because you are so caught up in it the first few times you might just miss little things like the chimes mixed lightly throughout, and heavily at the end which are so simple and yet add so much to the track.
So that’s what I thought of The Blue Herons single ‘In The Skies’ and if you want to check that out for yourself then head on over to Bandcamp. In the meantime support the band following them on Facebook.
