Video: Essie Jain – All Became Golden

Posted: July 03, 2013

A visual album, an audio documentary: Essie Jain’s fourth album, All Became Golden, was arranged by composer Nico Muhly and recorded in two days in New York. It’s an uplifting work, both as you watch the creative collaboration between singer-songwriter Jain, composer Muhly, and the classical orchestra, and as you hear and see Essie as the serene musician she’s become, after an angst-filled youth spent away from music.

In “Glory,” a new arrangement of a song from her first album, Essie’s voice floats above soft clouds of stringed melodies. It’s a voice that knows about being crushed, being hopeful, and finally, about being content.
