Add Peter Murray and Jennie Wayne to the growing list of artists to watch from Portland, Ore. The two singers, who write and record together as John Heart Jackie, recently released a glowing EP of acoustic, folk-flavored songs called Women & Money. The duo manages to pack a lot of beauty into about 14 minutes of handmade music, largely because of the enchanting two-part harmonies. John Heart Jackie say they recorded the songs in their shed and that "the learning curve was steep" because they originally intended to make a bunch of Sam Cooke covers. But, Murray assures listeners, "You'll like them. We do. Jennie likes to fall asleep to them."
