In Your House There

by Walter Price

Jane Willow’s original LP (Burn So Bright, 2021) version of “In Your House There” ft. Pat Byrne can be described as bittersweet, hauntingly beautiful, or perhaps pulchritudinous and can arguably trace its sound DNA to seminal Markéta Irglová & Glen Hansard’s Swell Season. But the track may even have a deeper lineage. In a Bandcamp post, Willow says the track’s origin story begins with Leonard Cohen. Which, in context, brings everything together.

This is now, or more recently to be precise, and Jane Willow had teamed up with Candian harpist Naomi SV for an even more stripped back ‘live’ version of the single, and it’s as substantial as the original. The vibe has changed oh so slightly taking on a somewhat lullaby persona with its sprinkling of xylophone innocence and emotive vocals, it’s simply enchanting.

In the same Bandcamp post, Willow adds depth to this journey, “This live version of ‘In Your House There’ features the awesome Naomi SV on harp, who also filmed the music video for the album version of ‘In Your House There’.—In April 2022 I decided to go to Montreal, not only to see Leonard Cohen’s birthplace but also to meet Naomi! It was so nice and I was so happy. And we even ended up recording a few more videos together. I was so happy with our live recording of ‘In Your House There’ that I wanted to release it.”

Here at the GTC, you can experience both versions of the poetic and picturesque homage to Cohen.
