    Pandemic Promotes Unexpected Music Collaborations

    CLAY MASTERS, BYLINE: Mason Jennings is a singer and songwriter from Minnesota.

    (SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE")

    MASON JENNINGS: (Singing) I was born in a gold mine. You were born by the sea. Without nothing, we got something - Memphis, Tenn.

    MASTERS: Jennings still remembers when his former manager approached him about working with a musician from one of his favorite bands when he was a teenager.

    JENNINGS: And he asked me - he was like, hey, would you want to work on some stuff with Stone Gossard? And I was like, of course I want to, you know? I'm a huge fan.

    MASTERS: Stone Gossard plays guitar in Pearl Jam and lives in Seattle. The two met about six years ago and started working on a project with Seattle keyboardist Brittany Davis and drummer Matt Chamberlain, who lives in Los Angeles. They called the band Painted Shield.

    (SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)

    MASTERS: They've never played together in person but started sending each other ideas online via Dropbox. Progress was slow because of all of their other commitments. Then the pandemic hit, Pearl Jam's tour was postponed and Gossard says an opportunity presented itself.

    STONE GOSSARD: It made us all think, what can we do right now for a little bit of creativity and just to keep feeling like we're staying active and moving forward?

    MASTERS: For one song, Chamberlain sent Jennings some ideas and music. And Jennings, who lives in Minneapolis, was prompted by George Floyd's murder to write lyrics.

    (SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "I AM YOUR COUNTRY")

    PAINTED SHIELD: (Singing) I am your country. And one day you'll understand that all the pain that we've been given is far too great to ever fit between two hands.

    MASTERS: Jennings then sent the music and lyrics on to Stone Gossard.

    JENNINGS: And then he put down an incredible guitar part.

    GOSSARD: Is it? Is it? (Laughter).

    JENNINGS: I think it's incredible.

    GOSSARD: Oh, awesome.

    JENNINGS: Whenever it comes in, it makes goose bumps go on my arms.

    GOSSARD: OK. Well, that's - I'm so happy.

    (SOUNDBITE OF PAINTED SHIELD SONG, "I AM YOUR COUNTRY")

    really? I thought Jeff said he was done with looking back. If so, can't wait.

    Zoom and Greet with Stone Gossard and Mason Jennings

    97.3 KBCO has your invitation to a private "ZOOM AND GREET" session featuring Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard's new side project with Mason Jennings called Painted Shield. You have a chance to join Keefer for this intimate conversation including your questions and comments with Stone Gossard and Mason Jennings. All this week, LISTEN after 3pm to score your way in.

    Brought to by:

    Painted Shield:

    Sometimes an album by a new band gets everything right. Such is the case with Painted Shield and their eponymous debut release (Loosegroove Records/ The Orchard): Rather than sounding like a tentative identikit of musical styles, it’s a brilliantly conceived, bold and cohesive portrait of its creators – chiefly Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard, singer-songwriter Mason Jennings and drumming star Matt Chamberlain – and a clear-eyed statement of purpose.

    I'm struggling to get into the Painted Shield album.
    I've listened to it a few times - and I really want to like it - but it's just not doing it for me.
