The Wilson Pickers Jolene


CD EP | ABC / Universal | 2009

A Wilson Pickers gig just wouldn’t be the same without Sime leading the boys through an emotional rendition of Jolene.

Everyone knows the song, we’ve all heard it a million times, but who’s heard it sung by five men concurrently? The stripped back instrumentation helps the heartfelt lyrics jump.

After endless requests, the Pickers relented and met in ABC’s Sydney studios to cut a version of that song and some other cover versions they’d been pulling out at festivals across the nation.
