Austin-based Jess Williamson makes beautifully melancholic cuts of folk rock, feeding bits of almost every great folk singer into a new, vital concoction.
There's handfuls of Elliott Smith's gutsy misery, and the majesty of Joni Mitchell, while also creating something extremely unique. Stereogum say her track See You In A Dream is "a beautiful mid-tempo excursion weaving layers of twangy guitar with minimal, dry but intricate percussive flourishes," and her upcoming UK gigs are set to be very special indeed.
Presented by Hey! Manchester.
