Hand Drawn Records. A Compilation. Volume 3.
Live Studio Session at Big Acre Sound (Copper Canyon, TX)
– Words by Michal Elizabeth Smith // Photos by Ronnie Jackson –
Acoustic singer-songwriter, Rachel Gollay, tracked her single, “Built for Love” under the pseudonymous name, “Gollay” during Hand Drawn Records’ compilation recording sessions. Gollay, lead guitarist of the psychedelic-rock quintet, Un Chien, formed her side project in 2010 pursuing an indie-folk sound.
During tracking, Gollay’s haunting vocals and minimalist guitar approach left the room of fellow musicians silent with assumed reflection. And at early listens, this version of “Built for Love” exists brilliantly between unassuming beauty and poised reverence—true gravitas.
