Excited and somewhat surprised by the unexpected success of Simple Jayne (with BBC 6 Radio play and support from Tom Robinson), Russ Jeanes started to search for other voices to bring two other tracks to life. Emily Grace Zornado put her mark on Smiles with her Eyes and recorded her vocals outside in the Danielson National Park in the States.

This is what Emily Grace Zornado, who delivers Smiles with her Eyes said recently about the experience :
‘It is coming up to two years since you first contacted me. I remember the moment really well because it felt so unexpected and special. It was the kind of summer day your music is meant to accompany, I wasn't sure what was going to come of it but I knew your message was genuine and truly flattering. It seemed so unlikely that you would have found what you were looking for just by scrolling through soundcloud, or that my voice could have stood out to in the midst of many many others. I love collaboration, and this one has been a special example of what art can be when everyone involved is committed to making something artful and lovely’
