Dreaming of Jeff Buckley

lp-1

Yesterday I had the pleasure of doing a short sitting with musician/vocalist LP.

LP has an incredibly beautiful voice, and in some context, it makes sense that she admires Jeff Buckley as a role model/inspiration.

The sitting was at JBTV, and Jerry had come into the studio area to get a portrait done with her. That’s him above along with LP’s bandmate Tim.

LP brought up that Jeff Buckley had been in the studio. Jerry said he’d been in twice. See some of the recordings here.

And if you’re a fan of Buckley’s, you’ll likely be aware of a stage recording done at the Metro here in Chicago. That was Jerry behind the production. And if you know his work, it is totally his style.

Jerry told LP that Jeff had started writing lyrics to a song at the studio on a napkin and he had it documented somewhere as well.

LP mentioned how big of an influence Jeff is on her work. We all stood there talking and each one of us said we had chills … We all — for that moment — had one degree of separation from one of the most incredible vocalists of all time.

Mind blowing.
