Americana Highways brings you this premiere of Red Yarn and Jazzy Ash’s version of the traditional song “Your Dog Loves My Dog,” from their forthcoming EP Sing Together. Sing Together was produced by Chris Schlarb at BIG EGO Studios; engineered by Devin O’Brien and by Adam Selzer; mixed by Tristan Dolce and Chris Schlarb; with mastering by Ronan Chris Murphy.
“Your Dog Loves My Dog” is Jazzy Ash (aka Ashli Rocker-St. Armant) on vocals; Red Yarn (aka Andy Furgeson) on vocals and guitar; Philip Glenn on organ and mandolin; Anthony Shadduck on bass; and
Danny Frankel on drums and percussion.
This song has a palpable energy that rushes to the heavens in layers, thanks to the infusion of vibes by Red Yarn and Jazzy Ash. And there’s a message beneath the glory: “Why can’t we sit under the apple tree?” Great music for really the whole family and the whole world.
As Ashli and I were hunting for a few old folk songs to include on our EP, we stumbled upon this gem, a Civil Rights-era anthem about friendship across differences. We found a beautiful version recorded by a Black vocal group called the Nashville Quartet, and decided to give it our own gospel-bluegrass spin. In the studio, the band really made it soar, and we had so much fun layering our voices and making ridiculous dog sounds. — Andy
