After two years in the studio and almost a decade collaborating with some of Australia’s best artists, Melbourne musician Jane Tyrrell has released her debut record Echoes In The Aviary, and she recently swung by the Music Feeds Studio to perform a few songs and have a chat about the process of recording the new LP.
“I guess it was kind of lengthy although I’ve heard of way more lengthy album processes,” the avant-pop songstress says. “Two years in the making for me, but I’ve heard of six, I’ve heard of more, you know, as crazy as life is sometimes, these things just take a while.”
Among the collaborations for the new disc, Tyrrell worked with Paul Kelly and PVT‘s Pike brothers, Richard and Laurence, and “pretty much all” of her favourite musicians in the country.
“[It was a] thrilling experience,” she says. “It went from absolute terror and shock to ‘this is fun, I wanna do this more! Let’s write more!'”
Tyrrell’s star continues to be on the rise across 2015, being nominated for the 10th Coopers Australian Music Prize (which was ultimately taken out by REMI) and pencilling in a performance as part of the program for Vivid Sydney.
