Jessi Robertson -
Nashville-based musician Jessi Robertson knows how to command a room. With wrenchingly honest songwriting and a powerhouse voice, Robertson deftly navigates the difficult boundaries between reality and imagination, and in the process bravely lays bare her own underlying emotional truths. Born in a small upstate New York town of fewer than 1,000 people, Robertson moved to Brooklyn, NY in 2003, and released two studio albums: 2011's "Small Town Girls," and 2014's "I Came From The War." In spring 2018, she moved to Nashville, Tennessee, and in December 2018, she surprised fans by releasing "Live From Union Hall," a previously unreleased set of performances recorded during her 2014 album release show. As a musician, Robertson rides the divide between indie iconoclasts such as PJ Harvey and Americana vanguards such as Lucinda Williams. Embracing these contradictions, her songs are as intimate as confessions, as cathartic as confrontations, and often injected with dark, wry humor. Her voice moves easily from lullaby crooning to wild rock and roll wailing, and her writing expertly explores themes of love, betrayal, darkness, and redemption.
