Over a career that spans more than a decade and a half and has won her a devoted worldwide fan base, Jess Klein—who possesses what Mojo magazine calls “one of those voices you want to crawl up close to the speakers to listen to” has pursued a remarkable creative evolution that’s seen her dig ever deeper for resonant emotional insights, while continuing to refine her eloquently melodic, effortlessly accessible songcraft. Jon Pareles of The New York Times calls her “a songwriter with a voice of unblinking tenacity…who finds parables in the everyday and also finds humanity behind the archetypal.”
The Rochester, NY native who now calls Hillsborough, NC her home began writing songs as a college student in Kingston, Jamaica, and is known for staking out brave lyrical and musical territory with such albums as Wishes Well Disguised (1998), Draw Them Near (2000), Strawberry Lover (2005), City Garden (2006), Bound to Love (2009), Behind A Veil (2012) and Learning Faith (2014) which Folk Radio UK calls “Unquestionably the finest album of her impressive career.” Before moving to North Carolina, Jess spent eight years soaking up the live music culture of Austin, TX. Bootleg (2015) Jess’s live, full band album captures the dynamism of Jess onstage, backed by some of Austin’s top players. Jess was named a 2015 Finalist in the highly regarded Kerrville New Folk Competition.
Joseph Parsons has always created his own unique vibe. For the recording side of his music, it is edgy melody focused songwriting. He brings a heart and soul to his songs through energy and emotional honesty. Often stories of people caught in hard times seeking salvation through love or a spiritual connection. Genres run the gamut from SingerSongwriter to Pop to Groove. His CD's are always a journey for the listener.
For his live show, Parsons takes a different approach. The live band show is a Rock show. Touring as a guitar centered 4-piece (drums, bass, electric, acoustic and several vocals), he put's on an incredible show. Charisma, vocal prowess, a great band and a select cover or two, Parsons' shows are always energetic, often bombastic.
A deep romantic, a student of the human condition and being an experienced producer enables Joseph to express with pin-point accuracy. A recent quote "an experienced dealer of emotions" says it all.
Parsons is a founder of the collaborative bands US Rails, Parsons Thibaud, '4 Way Street' (Sanctuary Records) & 'Hardpan' (Blue Rose Records.)
