Jet McDonald cycled to India from Bristol UK and these are the songs he wrote along the way on his Yamaha Junior guitar. Jet McDonald emerged from the Cleaner Records folk music collective in Bristol that included Kate Stables (This is the Kit), Rozi Plain and Rachel Dadd. His band Jetfly (now "The Woodlice") had radio play on BBC 6 Music and he is now part of the fledgling "Undergrowth" collective in Bristol with Jarvis Cocker favourites "Snails" and the inestimable "Spiderbelly". He has toured the UK and appeared at Fence Home Game and End of the Road festivals.

Soft Soft Soft the Sparrow Sings is a soaring musical travelogue with guitar, banjo, mandolin, violin, Casio keyboard and bike pump accompaniment.
