Smoke Notes

Best known for her work with Rhian Sheehan, Module and the Upbeats, Chambers’ is no stranger to the scene, with her single Hiding Place from Sheehan’s 2nd album Tiny Blue Biosphere reaching #1 on the bNet radio charts in ’04; her songs and vocals have been remixed by the likes of Minuit and Antix; and she has appeared on Berlin’s Love Parade compilation – one of the highest selling dance compiles worldwide in ’06. This though, is something different from her…

In a move away from her previous electronic-based work, Chambers has returned to her roots, recording her debut solo album with the Firefly Orchestra, a group featuring many of NZ's finest players: Sam F. Scott (Phoenix Foundation), Rio Hemopo (Trinity Roots), Tessa Rain (Fly My Pretties), Andy Hummel, Rob Hinkley (Good Laika) and more. The orchestra was brought together, conducted by and named after producer and virtuoso guitarist Justin “Firefly” Clarke (Fat Freddy’s Drop, Age Pryor, Sheba Williams), who recently returned to NZ after 8yrs living in Berlin.

This predominantly acoustic and entirely gorgeous album was recorded in just 8 days, under the masterful ears and hands of Dr. Lee Prebble (Trinity Roots, Phoenix Foundation, Black Seeds and so many more!).

And The Firefly Orchestra features delicate strings, lush guitars and multiple backing vocals, and in the vein of Gillian Welch, Beth Gibbons (Portishead) and Joni Mitchell, the predominant sound is lyrical, folksy, and poignant.

Earlier this year, Jess Chambers and the Firefly Orchestra gave 2 stunning performances at NZ's WOMAD festival where they enjoyed a standing ovation from a packed house. There’s plenty more where that came from…
