Eryn Allen Kane • "Piano Song"
I haven't seen the show Being Mary Jane, but all I had to read was that singer Eryn Allen Kane co-wrote a song with Will Miller (Whitney, The O'My's) called “Piano Song”. Not including her collaborative track with Prince, this is Kane's third single of the year, following equally as enjoyable "Slipping" and "Have Mercy".
"Piano Song", which premiered last night on the third season of the BET program, features plenty of familiar Chicago names, like Macie Stewart on piano, Lane Beckstrom on bass, Will Miller on horns, and Peter Manheim on drums. I might have to track down this episode of Being Mary Jane, because simply hearing this song without any visual accompaniment already feels like it should soundtrack a scene. Maybe a montage. Cinematic, serene, and with a great build-up, this song fits perfectly within this calm November weekday.
