“We treat the intersection between jazz and Americana with a lot more nuance than when we started,” Myhre said. “Now everybody in the band has a pretty good handle on the genres that we swim around in. We’re able to make more informed musical choices at this point. And our sound is starting to really gel into something more cohesive.”. Most of the band’s songs are written by Myhre or Ousley. They also “reimagine” traditional songs, such as “Corina, Corina,” which appears on the new album.

“We’ll get introduced to a song at a jam and if we really like it, we’ll check it out on YouTube or on records and hear all the different ways people have done it, Then we’ll make up our own groove, sometimes add new lyrics, change the melodies a little bit and re-harmonize it, “It’s fun to explore what these songs from 10 pieces - ballet shoes bracelets party favors other times might have meant to people who were singing basically the same melodies and words back then — and how that’s different when it’s coming out of my mouth.”..

Beautiful notes were coming out of Myhre’s mouth even as a child, growing up in Florida. “My mom says I was singing before I was talking.”. She sang in church and school choir. In middle school, she learned to play clarinet. In university, she sang in a cappella groups. She was a backup singer for funk, hip-hop and Motown-style bands. She had gone to university with thoughts of becoming an urban planner, regional designer or landscape architect. After graduating, however, while in Louisiana, Myhre’s direction in life changed.

“I moved to New Orleans, for non-musical reasons, and heard people playing traditional music on Frenchmen Street, I’m sure I had heard like Louis Armstrong or Billie Holiday recordings before, But when I saw people performing the music live, I really got bit by the bug, I really, really loved it.”, She bought 10 pieces - ballet shoes bracelets party favors a clarinet from a pawn shop and began playing again, “People in New Orleans were very generous with me, generous with their time, their talent and expertise, And I learned to play that music.”..

Myhre and Ousley had fallen in love and they settled in D.C., his hometown. Ousley built Myhre a musical washboard, with a row of tonally designed, frog-shaped wood blocks at the bottom. With Bumper Jacksons, they built a fervent following in D.C. and Maryland, gradually extending the fan base across the country. Now on tour, they’re accompanied by Myhre and Ousley’s one-year-old son, Monk, named after Thelonious. The band builds strong connections with live audiences. Myhre said, “We would like to move people and inspire them, but also allow space for people to really let loose and get up and dance. We get wonderful feedback from people saying they were really excited by the music and that it allowed them, for that time we were together, to leave their troubles behind.
