She [Jennifer Warnes] goes for real emotion in the back up vocals … her taste is impeccable, her musical decisions are impeccable. I’m very pleased with this project [Famous Blue Raincoat album] for many reasons. I love Jennifer as a person and as a singer and the fact that she’s dedicated all that talent to my songs – well you don’t have many of those gestures made towards you in your life.
