Landlady’s Adam Schatz Releases Two Songs In Honor Of Jessi Zazu [Stream]

Landlady’s Adam Schatz has just shared two new songs to honor the late Jessi Zazu of rock band Those Darlins. This includes an original “Share a Tree” and a cover of Al Green’s “Love And Happiness.” Both songs are full of joy and feel like a celebration of a truly beautiful life. Read Schatz’s statement on this project below:

“I am putting two new Landlady recordings out into the world today. I’m going through a lot of pain right now and I know others are too and listening to songs can help, so I see no use in holding it in.

Jessi Zazu Wariner was one of my favorite people on the planet and I will need a lot more words to say why in full. Here’s a few that are relevant.

The first song, the Al Green song, was our closing number on our tour this past February. Jessi couldn’t make it to the Nashville show because she had chemotherapy that day, and did so in a Landlady T-shirt. I was able to get to town the night before, my guys dropped me off and I slept on her floor, we stayed up talking and I can’t remember about what.

The second song in this pair, the original song, is a song I wrote years ago, for and about Jessi, Nikki, Linwood, Those Darlins and the complicated depths of the relationships carved out when making music with people long term. Nashville has long been a second home for me and it’s because of them. I would play Jessi new recordings I made long before they came out, and if she ever didn’t like something I would have burned it up. I sent her this song a few weeks ago, and received a glowing approval. I felt instantly big. She had that power over me. I feel incredibly lucky she left me feeling good, especially when I currently feel so bad.”
