about

This is a special Limited Time download!

Paisley Jura comes to pop music through the side door, bringing her two-hundred-year-old double bass with her. Paisley and her bass hop from plane to train and automobile (as well as the occasional canoe) as they traverse Canada. Classically trained, Paisley takes her bass with her almost everywhere, but it’s not for the orchestra. Now she calls the tune – and the tunes are her own collection of sophisticated pop songs delivered with a voice as clear as a bell.


“An unadorned voice that rings clear and true”
— NOW Magazine

“An old soul chanteuse with savvy pop sensibilities”
– The Globe & Mail

“Uncompromising artistic vision and confident sophistication – sweet and dainty on the surface yet bold and robust at its core.” — Exclaim.ca

Track Name: Time is How You Spend Your Love
Time Is How You Spend Your Love

JMP and MGG went away on a trip
across the land and over the water
they greeted future sons and daughters

and the clouds were like smoke from a train
and the trees said come back again
with arms open wide to the sky
and the gulls flew in circles above
the fresh new green of their love
and for a while they forgot how to cry

time is how you spend your love
time is how you spend your love

and now they live in a box that’s on top of another box
that’s on top of the box that’s on the bottom
and the dishes pile up in the sink
they don’t have time to think
that dreams are soon forgotten

time is how you spend your love
time is how you spend your love
time – time is how you spend your love

but the clouds were like smoke from a train
and the trees said come back again
with arms spreading wide to the sky
and the gulls flew in circles above
the fresh new green of their love
and for a while they forgot how to cry

time is how you spend your love
time is how you spend your love
time - time is how you spend your love
Track Name: Palmteller
Palmteller

Palmteller you sit there with golden sequins in your hair
Your bangles they jangle till all the men must stop and stare
A slice across my palm and I am falling in a well
The branches on my lifeline have me heading straight for hell

But your luminous murmuring
brings on a hush brings on the dawn
My gangrenous wretchedness --
we’re thick as thieves we’re golden and gone

Dreamreader, you’re with me - our shadows passing through the wall
You snuff out the candle and bedlam claims us all –

Your luminous murmuring
brings on a hush brings on the dawn
My gangrenous wretchedness --
We’re thick as thieves we’re golden and gone

Soothsayer, your vision is clear behind your clouded eyes
Your black teeth and foul breath can’t hide the truth’s disguise
But one day we will sail across the seven salty seas
And you and I will vanquish day and fall down on our knees

Your luminous murmuring
brings on a hush brings on the dawn
my gangrenous wretchedness
we’re thick as thieves
Your luminous murmuring
brings on a hush brings on the dawn
My gangrenous wretchedness --
We’re thick as thieves --
We’re golden and gone.
