Jessy Greene, Minneapolis' multi-talented instrumentalist, releases her second solo album, "A Demon and Her Lovers". The record is full of infectious melodies, swelling harmonies, and heart-stopping string lines.
"A Demon and Her Lovers" chronicles Jessy's journey around the country and the world, as a woman whose life was likely saved by music. Jessy left her small hometown as a teenage runaway bound for L.A. and got into UCLA on the merit of her audition. She has since lived on both coasts and toured internationally as a musician, collaborating with some world-class talent.
Since the release of her first record, "Blue Sky", Jessy has played the violin with Wilco, Atmosphere, Soul Asylum, R.E.M., The Jayhawks, Romantica, Dessa of Doomtree and P.O.S. to name a few. She won a Minnesota Music Award for her work at this year's ceremony. On this record she is backed by members of Heiruspecs, some of the tightest and most highly trained hip-hop musicians in the Midwest.
