On McKinney Music, “the best independent music magazine in the UK“, for their debut single, Spend A Little Time, songwriting duo Jack And Jill Release (Chel Hill and Alex Bäcker) tapped a lineup of star-studded musicians, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Spend A Little Time
Songwriting duo, Jack & Jill ( artists Chel Hill and Alex Bäcker) enlisted the help of a group of famous musicians to produce their debut single, Spend A Little Time, including Bon Jovi’s Phil X, multi-Platinum producer Ron Nevison, Grammy-winner Jeff Bova, on piano and strings, Denny Fongheiser on drums, and Tony Franklin on bass. The song was engineered by Chris Kahn.
The straightforward, clean female vocals of Spend a Little Time evoke feelings of nostalgia, and legendary guitar riffs with an 80s vibe accompany them.
Chel Hill explained how an idea that came while playing the piano inspired this love song about missing your loved one, especially when they live far away. Chel jill and Alex Bäcker emphasised what an honour it was to create this song with their childhood heroes and fellow musicians that feature on the track.
