Jessie Grace is a singer/songwriter from South Bucks, just west of London (U.K). She began her life in music studying classical piano and went on to teach herself guitar. It was then that she began to write songs. Her main musical influences include Radiohead, The Raconteurs, Nirvana, Bjork and PJ Harvey and she has incorporated all of these influences into her debut album ‘Asleep On The Good Foot’, produced by Dave Draper. The five free songs presented here are taken from that wonderful album.
The album has so far been very well received, gaining praise from UK media, both on radio and online. Tracks from the album have been broadcast on several ‘BBC Introducing’ shows, (Three Counties, BBC Oxford, and BBC Berks) with opening track ‘Beautiful’ being aired nationally on Tom Robinson’s ‘Introducing’ programme on BBC6.
In a recent review of the record, music reviewer Toxic Pete sums her style up: “…Jessie’s music sits somewhere between the nu-folk of K T Tunstall and some of the more angularly jazzy Joni Mitchell works. Add to that a very commercial sounding vocal delivery; something again between Tunstall, Judie Tzuke and Dido and you’ve got yourselves a very viable, workmanlike piece of work! Jessie Grace keeps this work very fluid, it’s continually changing, evolving; just when you think you’ve got her sorted and labelled she hits you with something that refuses to be pigeonholed and you have to start re-thinking your initial assessment… if Jessie Grace can get the promotional support she deserves, this lady will be a name and a force to contend with…”
Colin MacKinnon from Oxfordbands.com comments: “Asleep on the Good Foot’ is an excellent debut from a really promising talent. A song like ‘L.O.V. E.’ is clinching proof of how good Grace can be, bringing it all together: smart songwriting, sympathetic production and a delectable voice. And she’s young and gorgeous. Don’t you just hate her?”
Jessie has previously been involved in several band projects and is now focussing on making it as a solo artist. She hopes ‘Asleep on the Good Foot’ represents a strong beginning to a long career producing world-class music.
