When the members of Jump Little Children returned to the studio together for the first time in more than a decade, there was a hesitance in what it would be like.
Previous experiences were tough going, but the Charleston-based group planned to work with new producers for an album paid for by fans through a PledgeMusic drive.
“We had this dread of going into the studio because we are a live band. Now I would love to go back into the studio,” multi-instrumentalist Matt Bivins said. “It’s one of the most fun things I’ve done this year.”
What came from the sessions “Sparrow,” which is 12 new songs from the group that were stalwarts on the regional and national music scene in the late-90s and early-00s. The first single, “Hand on my Heartache,” has received air play on some Southeast stations.
