The sonorous duo of John Heart Jackie last caught my attention with a beautiful rendition of a Damien Jurado song. With a newfound interest, and a little check up of the band, I also came across these very stripped down, acoustic videos of their own material. Recorded in Manitou Springs, CO as part of Fuel/Friends Music, the pair here sit out in the woods and offer up both "You've Been On My Mind," and "Hook In My Arm" after the jump. Nothing fancy here, just single shots of two great voices, folksy guitars and the trees. John Heart Jackie play with the Lower 48 and Alina Hardin tonight at Mississippi Studios.
