A unique song that reminds us all that there’s more to life than material goods, Jess Chizuk’s hit ‘China Plates’ has earned it’s rightful spot as song of the week.
Finding herself on the floor of her mother’s kitchen looking up at a cabinet full of china, Jess began to write ‘China Plates.’ Viewing the china plates as a symbol of the unnecessary items we become attached to, Jess felt she needed to remind us that we don’t need material goods to bring happiness to our lives, but to be grateful for the path you’re on.
Though originally written as a single backed up by a full band, Jess decided to include ‘China Plates’ on her 2015 album “Lehigh Valley Line” adding a twist of her own to her already popular hit. Removing the band, Jess recorded ‘China Plates’ as an acoustic track with nothing but a the sound of a piano and her own vocals. Despite being stripped down, the new version of ‘China Plates’ sounds pure and vulnerable.
