CM Catches Up With... Faith Healer
Canadian Musician’s Mike Raine recently sat down with Edmonton’s Jessica Jalbert of the duo Faith Healer at the Rivoli in downtown Toronto. Jalbert discusses the decision to turn Faith Healer from a solo project to a duo by bringing in long-time friend and collaborator Renny Wilson as an official band member and how the two of the them crafted their new album Try ;-), which was released in September on Mint Records.
The follow-up to 2015’s Cosmic Troubles, which got rave reviews from Pitchfork and others, was largely recorded during an intensive month-long session in September 2016 at Wilson’s personal studio in Montreal. During the process, Jalbert rented a room in Wilson’s house and the pair spent hours jamming and listening to bargain bin rock records in the basement.
