The Video: “Petey’s Song”
The Artist: Mysterious ambient folk musician Stone Jack Jones
The Album: Ancestor, out 3/4. Patty Griffin sings backup on several songs; members of Lambchop provide musical accompaniment.
Songwriter Says: “This here is Petey, may he rest in peace. He lived with my dear friend Robin Eaton and often I would find myself hanging with Petey on this couch in front of a cozy crackling fire. I’d strum guitar and he would snore & fart. I wrote our buddy song before he left us. Together we were ‘best of show.’”
