TWISTED SOUL, hailed as “wildly creative” by AXS.com and “a solid and sultry crossover album worthy of the highest praises” (Playback: stl), is the latest chapter of a success story based on hard work and a strong connection with a growing army of fans in the U.S. and Europe for the artist who was raised in Clinton, NJ, and has been based in Philadelphia since graduating Magna Cum Laude from the Berklee College of Music. Just selected one of “5 Indie Artists You Should Hear” by Mocha Man Style, Jessi celebrated her CD Release Event in April 2015 in front of a capacity crowd at the Sellersville Theater (Sellersville, PA).
Jessi calls TWISTED SOUL “a crossover record with a jazz spinal cord with a sequenced “poperatic” story arc of cathartic metamorphosis – overcoming tragedy through change and growth. The album showcases Jessi’s sinuous vocal prowess as well as her heralded songwriting capacity, and contains three songs which already have won awards, including the kickoff track, “The Haunting”.
She writes impressionistically about heartbreak, love, loss, gain, and sisterhood on TWISTED SOUL, tracing her surrender to – and eventual escape from – a controlling, abusive lover. All the while, she masterfully mixes jazz sophistication, blues grit, and soul’s tragic romance, with an edgy-but-elegant aesthetic. It’s that type of classy combination that’s drawn her comparisons to everyone from Billie Holiday to Sade to Fiona Apple, and admiration for Jessi’s rare sense of soul-baring vocal honesty with no pretenses or unnecessary acrobatics.
Jessi recorded TWISTED SOUL in Paris, where she initially had landed for writing inspiration, live at Studio de Meudon with renown engineer Julien Bassères. She was backed by the Thierry Maillard Trio, led by one of France’s top pianists, and to give the album just the right eclectic sound, acclaimed French accordionist Laurent Derache. Jessi produced/arranged TWISTED SOUL and, finishing off its cultural blend with more American influence, enlisted further help from engineer Ron DiSilvestro.
