These songs were written for a musical production written and directed by Michael McQuilken – a longtime friend of both JASON WEBLEY and AMANDA PALMER – who has recorded and toured with both artists. These recordings were made essentially as demos for McQuilken to work from when adapting the songs for his play. The demos and the songs turned out too good to not give them some sort of release. “JIB: Or the Child Who Went Forth to Learn What Fear Is” is opening in Philadelphia this month – most of these were preordered so you better hurry if you want one!
