We’re delighted to bring you the exclusive audio premiere of the new single from Nashville-based duo Arbor North, “You, Me & Jesus.”
Michael Boris & AC Jones have a shared Christian faith that they are keen to share. Initially written by the now husband and wife duo, with the primary purpose of being the soundtrack for the first dance at their wedding, the song is a simplistic, meaningful and solemn vow to stand by each other and to always rest in their faith.
AC and Michael acknowledge that their Christian faith isn’t necessarily shared with every member of their audience, but You, Me, and Jesus spans religious divides. They hope that other people will connect with the track as a love song in its own right, making it an intrinsic part of the musical backdrop of their special day.
“The title, “You, Me, and Jesus”, is a phrase that we started to say to each other during our time as a long-distance couple before we were married. We’d end all of our letters and cards with it when we’d write to each other, and on days when the distance made us miss each other even more than usual, we’d use the saying as a comfort. When we decided to write a wedding song, it was clear that we needed to use this little motto of ours as a title. We finally landed on exactly what we wanted the song to say, and opted for a simply-stated set of vows to each other that, at the very end, goes beyond “’til death do us part”. “
When working on the production for this song, both AC and Michael envisaged acoustic instrumentation with a tender, somber, and almost Celtic style fiddle (performed by Kyle Pudenz). The track was recorded at The Blue Grotto in Nashville.
