The couple's experience with performing together has been translated into their latest album according to Jeremy. He says, "What we wanted to do with this record was to capture our music live off the floor using a single mic. There's no hiding anything and there's a real energy involved when you do that. We found that way of performing really brought something out of us that we hadn't noticed before."
To help capture that feeling, Jeremy and Sheree chose to work with Steve Dawson* as their producer. Jeremy points out, "We wanted to record with him because he doesn't do much multi-tracking. Most of what he records is live off the floor. He tries to draw out a performance from the artist and that's what we wanted. We wanted to draw a performance out of ourselves that showed where we were at as musicians at that particular time."
The album was an experience that they both enjoyed. Jeremy says, "It was mostly Sheree and I looking at each other through a couple of large diaphragm microphones and playing our songs together. We did all of the recording for it in five days. The album was about not so much about the technical side of things but more about the feeling that we were trying to convey."
Moving to a smaller community, away from the bulk of their family and friends, has allowed the pair the space they needed to co-write in Jeremy's view. He says, "We're less distracted, so we felt that we could collaborate more directly to write songs together."
Their process of songwriting still starts on an individual basis. Jeremy says, "We'll each come up with guts of a song on our own. After that, we'll bring them to one another when we have time. We’ve got three kids and I'm a full-time contractor so life is pretty busy.. We found that if we were open enough and gentle enough with one another during the process, we could encourage one another towards writing better songs in the end. One person comes up with the main idea and the other person edits and suggests changes."
