About Me
Throughout her life, Kilroy has had her guitar by her side, capturing each experience with heartfelt lyrics and a soulful, genuine sound from a voice that Award winning bluesman, Guy Davis, once described as "Beautiful and pure, her voice takes me somewhere deep, and way back"

After watching Jessica perform live, Grammy nominated songwriter Skip Ewing expressed, "Jessica's voice is honest and pure, it's nothing like I've ever heard before. She's a 21st century Emmy Lou Harris." In 2005, Skip invited Jessica to sing at the legendary Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee where she performed "in the round" with Ewing, Viktor Krauss, Pat Flynn, Barry Walsh and Tommy Harden.

Kilroy has traveled the country performing and co-billing with diverse acts such as Tony Trischka, Darrell Scott, Guy Davis, Walt Michaels, The Wilders, Trampled by Turtles, The Drew Emmitt Band, Yonder Mountain String Band, Bill Nershi, Po Girl, Ben Sollee, Califone, The McCoury Brothers, Doc Watson and many others. In 2008 Kilroy won the NW String Summit Band Competition with her bluegrass trio and was invited to perform on the main stage in 2009. Also in 2008, Kilroy was selected for the Horse & Writer Invitational Scholarship Award including a week of one-on-one mentorship from five of Nashville's top hit songwriters. In 2009 she was selected as a finalist for the Telluride Troubadour Competition and performed a solo set on the main stage as well as performing with Sam Bush and the Troubadour finalists.

Kilroy's first album "Before Dawn", comprised of all original folk music and recorded in a small Montana cabin in 2003 (each song recorded with just guitar and vocals in one take) was recently re-released in 2009. "Montana native Jessica Kilroy doesn't hide behind a posse of guests and bandmates. Her voice is quietly compelling, and she doesn't distract from the songs with vocal gymnastics that I suspect she is more than capable of pulling off. Her guitar playing is subtle and understated. The focus, then, becomes the songs themselves, and there isn't a dud among the nine tracks of her recently re-released debut, Before Dawn." -The Missoulian

Kilroy's sophomore album "Big Dreams" comprised of original Americana and bluegrass, released in 2007, features guest vocalist Anne Sibley, and bluegrass musicians Eric Thorin, Ben Winship, Brian Wicklund and John Lowell. "Kilroy's new album "Big Dreams" showcases her light, angelic voice and highly melodic songwriting. Fans of Allison Krauss may feel like they're witnessing a second coming when Kilroy sings." -The Missoulian

Kilroy is currently recording an Americana album scheduled for release in 2010 and will be releasing her debut indie-folktronic album entitled "Raven" February 18th 2010 with her side project "Pterodactyl Plains".

"To invite comparison of Jessica Kilroy's voice and music to another singer/songwriter would sell it short. Comparing it to someone familiar would not be enough, because her voice is her own. Clear, accurate and wonderfully soothing, her voice draws the listener in. Stop, then listen. You'll be a fan too." -John Lowell (Critically Acclaimed Guitarist and Songwriter)

Booking Spring (Mar-May) European/UK tour!

It has been a crazy summer and one of my favorite and most successful musical summers yet. Between performing at Telluride (where I had the opportunity to perform an hour long set on the songwriter stage, a set on the main stage and then later with Sam Bush!), my first festival headline at Bluegrass on the Comstock in Virginia City, NV (and all those ghosts!), NWSS (where I got to perform with the McCoury brothers!), Yarmony Festival (performing with bluegrass folks from across the country… Continue

Hi Jess
I can certainly recommend you join the Artistic Freedom Collective and let us know the dates you'll be available as we are arranging a few Events/Festivals/Showcases around the UK this year. You'll also get some airplay on the AFC Radio Shows I'm sure.
Just go to http://afcollective.ning.com/
and set up your page (all free of course) and upload some photos, songs and info.
I'm listening to your music as I write.. very nice indeed!
Peace,
Maria : )

Edinburgh in May would work. I just need to know that date fairly soon. I have some people setting up dates for me and I should let them know, ASAP, when I am booking other stuff. I think that it would be fun though. I'm touring southern England in March so I'll probably just stick with Scotland and maybe Ireland in May. I hope that we can work together though! Thanks so much for the invite! Cheers-JeffDelete Comment
