Lizanne Knott, Jesse Terry and Michael Logen team up to cover Tom Petty and more.
Sunset Avenue Sessions is something of an accident for singer-songwriters Lizanne Knott, Jesse Terry and Michael Logen.
The project -- whose Logen original "Already Home" and cover of Tom Petty's "Wildflowers" are premiering exclusively below -- came out of a late summer session to record "a few songs" to promote U.K. dates the trio was performing during October. Gathering at Knott's home studio outside of Philadelphia they spent five hours recording and wound up with 11 songs of originals and covers -- including Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire," Buffalo Springfield's "For What It's Worth" and P!nk's "Try" -- with Dar Williams dropping in to sing on Terry's "Stargazer." "Everybody who heard it loved it and were like 'Oh, wow, this sounds really good,'" Knott tells Billboard. "We thought we might as well do a little record and release it, although that's not what the thought process was when we started it."
