Rusticalia is the recording project of Jesse Osmun, who hopes to one day play his songs live when he settles down. Jesse started playing in 1998, but only recently decided to get serious about writing and recording songs. He draws inspiration from life, literature, and spirituality to create simple but elegant tunes. He currently lives in Connecticut.
He would like to thank:
John Kaplan, Banjo on Foot Of My Bed
Jeff Nix, Lap Steel on Passengers, Dobro on Hush
Olivia Chrestomanci, Backing Vox on To A Lover on The Road
Jeff Mahoney, Alto Flute on Rusted Tractor on Route 2
Will McCall - Piano on Rusted Tractor on Route 2
Jana Foley- Flute on Selah
Keith J Fuller- Garritan Virtual Violin on Selah
Gerald Grech- Virtual Cello on Selah
I am forever grateful for their help in composing for this album!
This album is a culmination of life experiences that transferred to long hours at the guitar, transferring thoughts and feelings to the raw, honest songs that became this album.
