"Pen Pals - Gold" is an acoustic collaboration between singer/songwriters Heath McNease and Jetty Rae. Intense, soul bearing lyrics mixed with beautiful harmonies abound from start to finish.
"Gold" is a simple story about the rise and fall of summer love. From its bright, airy opening number, "Camp" to its final moment of acceptance in "July"...the project chronicles the slow acceptance that some beautiful things weren't meant to last. Its not always in the written word. Sometimes just the atmosphere of the song itself creates the backdrop for those feelings to make themselves real.
If you're a fan of The Swell Season, The Civil Wars, The Weepies, The Avett Brothers, or Simon and Garfunkel...then you will fall in love with "Pen Pals."
