In 2010, the revered Damien Jurado released his ninth album, Saint Bartlett, to laudatory praises from both fans and critics. In keeping with the undeniable chemistry he shares with Richard Swift, the two recorded a collection of covers, Other People’s Songs, which is still available to stream and download for free here. NPR called their rendition of Bill Fay’s “Be Not Fearful” the best cover song of the year.

The relentless Jurado will be back on tour this March throughout the West Coast and South, alongside Viva Voce. And be sure to expect even more from Jurado in the coming months!
