Sarah Jarosz on “Jealous Moon”
I wrote this song with Daniel Tashian in Monteagle, TN on a screened in porch with birds chirping all around. It was a warm summer afternoon. It started as a quiet melody on ukulele and nylon string guitar, but when we got to the studio it became something much more powerful. It’s a song about the times when the parts of ourselves that we try to keep hidden rise to the surface and we have no choice but to ride the wave. Sometimes that means doing your own thing to figure it out so you can emerge stronger on the other side. It’s not about the end of a relationship, but rather a moment of self reflection and a promise to keep showing up even when things get tough. Once Daniel played the opening riff on piano I knew it had to open the album. I’m always seeking to push myself into new sonic territory, and this song gave me permission to not hold back.

The seventh album from Sarah Jarosz finds the highly decorated songwriter at the apex of change. A Texas native, she’s spent most of her adult life living in New York City, but shortly before writing the album Jarosz left her adopted home to join her soon-to-be husband in Nashville, TN. The geographic shake-up led to a sonic one as well for Polaroid Lovers. For the first time in her career she opened herself up to collaborators, leading to writing sessions with Daniel Tashian, Ruston Kelly and Natalie Hemby. The creative reorganization of her writing process evolved to include a much richer and more electric sound in the studio and being in Nashville meant access to a world of hot shot players. She tapped guitarist Rob McNelley (Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood), Tom Bukovac (Tom Petty, Vince Gill) on guitar and organ, her husband- bassist Jeff Picker (Nickel Creek), and drummer Fred Eltringham (Sheryl Crow, Lucinda Williams) for the album recording. Tashian took the helm as producer and the whole album was laid down at the legendary Sound Emporium.

About Liv Greene

Liv Greene is a queer Americana singer, songwriter, producer, and guitarist, whose music “envelops a forlorn loneliness that’s at once poignant and crushing.” – American Songwriter. Inspired by the records spun in her childhood home in DC—brilliant women of song like Patty Griffin, Shawn Colvin, Brandi Carlile, Lucinda Williams, and Ella Fitzgerald— Greene’s passion for storytelling started early and took off the moment she taught herself her first guitar chords at 12. Over summers in high school, Greene journeyed north for fiddle camps and bluegrass festivals, and found herself in love with the New England folk scene, influencing her decision to sharpen her craft through four years at New England Conservatory. Upon graduating in 2020, Greene quietly released her first album, Every Bright Penny, aptly-named both as an homage to its crowdfunded conception, but also to the reverence of small things and the flashes of hope that live in its lyrics. The record was produced by friend and mentor Isa Burke (Aoife O’Donovan, Lula Wiles), and featured a band of mostly women, creating the perfect environment for Greene to grow and begin envisioning herself in new roles in the studio. Now living in Nashville, Greene just finished work on her second album, which had her stepping into the role of producer for the first time. With the help of her friend and mentor, engineer Matt Andrews (Gillian Welch), Greene has woven a record of deeply honest writing, sparse lyric- driven arrangements, and stunning live to tape performances, with the lilty earnesty of her voice flowing over it all.
