A Live Show Review

Jessie played a SOFAR Sounds show in Champaign, Illinois, and a local radio station reviewed the show. Here are some clips of Jessie's show review:

She seemed to be enjoying herself so much, that I felt a natural inclination to enjoy myself as well. Even in between songs, Jessie’s banter with her husband and with the audience added to the experience and proved that her music is undeniably her, and made it one of the more memorable moments of the night.

Live Show Review!

Nashville Offbeat, a Nashville music blog, came to watch a Jessie Smith show and did a stellar review about it. Check it out here, or read below:

Jessie Smith brought her "swampy soul singer/songwriter" style to Tin Roof on July 12th, hosted by Spotlight 615.  With a tight thirty-minute set, she made sure that everyone present had their eyes unwaveringly trained on her.

"The first thing Nashville Offbeat noticed was Jessie's passion and power onstage.  The proverbial electricity was running right through her entire body as she clapped and stomped along to the beat (the whole room could hear it even without a mic!).  She had passing tourists stopping to stand in the doorway to watch her vibrant performance.  

Jessie's lyrics and songwriting abilities are superb as well!  The use of rhythm in the melodies makes them stand out and flow across the room.  Though Jessie claims she's not a morning person, when she hits the stage, she's the person in her song "Like the Sun."  "Well I look to the sky, and I thought what if I was lighting up the world, honey, and I didn't even know."  Her accompanist and husband, Bradley, is a killer guitar player and vocalist, whose talents complement Jessie perfectly.  His laid-back, confident playing style created the backdrop for Jessie's voice to shine throughout the performance.  The show was tight, fun, and highly entertaining!

"Like the Sun" is also the name of Jessie's first full-length album, released earlier this year, and is available on Soundcloud.  She plans on performing in the near future at Acme Feed and Seed and The Family Wash.  Follow this upcoming artist on Facebook for updates and info! "

First Touring Vehicle!

We've been thinking about it. We've been saving for it. And now, it's here. Our baby, whom I've named Choo Choo (but Bradley refuses to comply). Please welcome our newest family member!

It was getting harder to make it to all of my out-of-town shows without paying an arm-and-a-leg for a hotel room, or sleeping on someone's couch. So, we found this baby for a really good price. It needs a lot of fixing up, but for now, we're just gonna clean her up to get ready for our show this Friday - IN FLORIDA. We will be definitely testing out the AC! Wish us luck....

Here is Choo Choo after we cleaned her for hours. In all her glory. I can't wait to see what happens now in this new adventure!
