Slightly Skewed

by Jess Pillmore

"Her crypto-poetic delivery plays like the NYC-cool inner dialogues of Suzanne Vega & Jim Carroll crossed w/ the unpredictable shifts of middle-period PJ Harvey. Even at this early stage in her career, Pillmore is easily more than the sum of those parts."

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Isn't it just like me to walk into a storm head first?" (What I Need)... And that's just what she does with her second cd, Slightly Skewed. Jess Pillmore lets you in on a personal journey with images so vivid that you might blend Jess's past with your own. This independent artist is causing an international buzz with Slightly Skewed. Her blend of folk, jazz and pop is infectious and delightful. If you've been looking for a singer/songwriter who can speak to you directly... then take a listen to Slightly Skewed.

Folk with a bite... Rock with a vision... songs with an edge. Jess Pillmore's extensive work within theatre, dance and music have enabled her to write songs that make each moment three-dimensional. Wherein every moment has heart, will and perspective. Her music makes the connection and leaves with you, to turn in your head days after you have seen her. Her melodies and lyrics feel comfortable - like someone out there knows you. Love and fear- distrust and growth - the wear and tear of life. It is all there in a rhythm that flickers and haunts you.

"These Lyrics stay with you the whole day"
After listening to this CD the lyrics stayed with me the whole day and beyond. The images and funk grooves had me singing along in no time. Jess's subtle edge left me wanting more. She dances on the edge of Jazz, blues and rock. I want more!!!

If you like interesting lyrics that are truely "Slightly Skewed", delivered by a voice that is rich and full of color and texture, then this is the CD for you. Jess Pillmore is a very talented singer-songwriter and I look forward to hearing more from her.

Powerful !
Jess describes her music as "folk with a bite, rock with a vision, songs with an edge." Pillmore's arrangements are filled with memorable melodies, funky rhythms and a variety of styles that includes traces of jazz and blues. She writes very personal songs about love, anxiety, doubt and growth. Jess's lyrics are filled with vivid imagery and she sings from the heart. Pillmore's music has a mysterious intriguing element, her words and emotions invoke curiosity. Unlike Me still has me guessing if it is about an encounter with an angel or just a reflection of one's unknown self. Regardless, the song has eloquent guitars, a sharp precise beat and expressive versatile vocals. I'll Remember is a pain drenched song filled with soft reflections and edgy remembrance enhanced with excellent vocal inflection and expressive instrumentation. Slightly Skewed is an ironic title for this considerable work of straightforward powerful music.
