>Better Than Real Life<, the third album by London duo JetTricks has just been released. Their blend of classic Seventies songwriting, a profound groove, analogue recording techniques and exquisite musicianship has been recognized by those with an ear for the smart rhythms around the world. Amongst the impressive line-up of guest vocalists on >Better Than Real Life< there are two stand-out contributions: >Stephanie< featuring Shawn Lee and >See Us Through< featuring Huey Morgan.
The US born, UK based multi-instrumentalist Shawn Lee is a prolific producer and songwriter and his Ping Pong Orchestra has been heard on many a Hollywood blockbuster Movie or TV advert. JetTricks enlisted Shawn to lay down some humorous yet super soulful vocals on the track ‘Stephanie’ which, as well as being catchy as hell - will put a big smile on your face, especially when you watch the video
“See Us Through” featuring Huey Morgan
The Fun Lovin’ Criminals frontman Huey Morgan is a cool customer. He raps, plays a mean guitar and host’s radio shows on both BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music. After featuring them on his show, Huey played a blistering guitar solo on JetTricks’ cover of the O’Jays classic ‘For The Love Of Money’. This wasn’t enough though and the collaboration continued with Huey dropping some classic vocals and guitar on ‘See Us Through’ that will have you nod your head in spiritual agreement.
