“Unwavering and heartfelt lyrics combined with one of the most powerful female voices in Brooklyn..." - Layton Weedeman, Blaqbook Magazine
Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Jessi Robertson grew up in a tiny upstate New York town of under 1,000 people, but eventually moved to the big city and carved out a place for herself. Her first full band studio album, “Small Town Girls” (2011), follows that journey.
In her previous self-produced release, “Who We Are, What We Have Done” (2008), Jessi blended electronic and folk elements with intensely personal lyrics. Singles from the album have appeared on television and in independent films. “Atlas Shrugged” was featured in the film and trailer for Trooper, an independent film about veterans returning from war. Jessi also wrote and recorded two songs specifically for Trooper, “Broken Soldiers” and “Never Let Them See You Cry” (available on Bandcamp).
In 2014, Jessi will be recording and releasing her next album with a new band featuring Omer Leibovitz on lead guitar (The Courtesy Tier, Dan Abraham), Layton Weedeman on drums (The Courtesy Tier), and Alex Picca on bass (The Press).
