Wailin' Jennys Looking for the Water from a Deeper Well

The song about the deeper well was written by David Olney, first performed by Daniel Lanois and Emmylou Harris.

Canadian trio The Wailing Jennys sing it brilliantly; the drum work takes the song to a deep place. Here they sing One Voice.

Another example of their deep work is their performance of a song by Mike Scott of the Waterboys, Bring 'em all in.

"When that storm comes," they sing in this a capella version of  Storm Comin, "don't run for cover...Let that falling rain wash away the tears and the trouble, cause you can't keep a storm from coming." Truly a unique sound, yet also reminiscent of Quartette.
