For over a decade, Jess Klein’s gutsy “tell it like it is” folk pop has been embraced by tastemakers from Tokyo to London, from Australia to her new home state of Texas.

Graced with one of the most enviable voices in Americana music – that’s her singing harmony on John Fullbright’s Grammy-nominated album From the Ground Up,Jess is equally at ease with a sultry whisper or a rock’n’roll wail.  MOJO Magazine writes “Jess Klein has one of those voices you want to crawl up close to the speakers to listen to.” The NY Times describes her songwriting as having “stranger, more personal things to say than one could get away with most of the time in Nashville.” And No Depression‘s Lee Zimmerman calls Klein’s latest release Behind A Veil  “An excellent album – a career-maker in fact.” In fact, Klein has released eight critically acclaimed albums of her own and toured the globe, sharing the stage with such greats as Arlo Guthrie, Steve Earle, Jimmy Dale Gilmore, Shawn Colvin, Radney Foster and Alejandro Escovedo.

Klein has grown into her Texas surroundings easily. No stranger to culture shock, the Rochester, New York native first picked up the guitar and started writing songs while living as a student in Kingston, Jamaica in her late teens. After returning to the states, Klein moved to Boston and began performing locally, releasing her first album, Wishes Well Disguised independently.  After winning the Telluride Troubadour Songwriting Contest, and garnering several Boston Music Award nominations, she was spotted and signed to Rykodisc. Her first release for the label, Draw Them Near, (3.5 stars, USA Today), launched Klein on a worldwide tour that saw her wow 70,000 attendees at Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival. Soon after, Klein joined the songwriter collective Voices on the Verge, along with Erin McKeown, Rose Polenzani, and Beth Amsel. The foursome was featured on Good Morning America performing Klein’s song “Little White Dove” and brought sold out crowds in small theaters across the U.S. to their feet nightly with their blend of harmonies and eclectic styles.

After a move to NYC, Klein recorded her second solo effort for Ryko, Strawberry Lover (2005), which debuted as the No. 1 most added album at triple A radio a week before its release and garnered four stars from MOJO, as well as having the title track named one of the “Top Ten Sexiest Songs of the Moment” by the NY Daily News. Draw Them NearStrawberry Lover and 2006’s City Garden would capture the attention of critics and fans worldwide.

Always searching for new adventure and inspiration, Klein relocated to Austin, Texas in 2008, where she quickly embraced the music of her new home. In between tours, which included a stint in Ireland supporting folk legend Arlo Guthrie, Klein found time to collaborate with some of Austin’s most talented artists: Jon Dee Graham, Randy Weeks, Radney Foster, Jimmy LaFave, Slaid Cleeves, Matt the Electrician, Drew Womack, Josh Abbott, Stoney LaRue, Butch Hancock, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Will Sexton, Ray Bonneville and Oklahoma-based John Fullbright.

Behind a Veil (2012) marks Klein’s second album with Austin based producer Mark Addison, the first being 2009’s critically acclaimed Bound to Love. In Bound to Love,Klein keenly embraced the dusty roots of Texas songwriters while reveling in her new surroundings. Behind a Veil goes deeper, chronicling her feelings during a particularly hard year; the loss of her father after a 5 year battle with ALS, a split with a long-time lover, and the self-empowering decision to move forward with no record label.

Jess explains: “You never really know what the big picture is to a situation – sometimes the meaning is veiled. It can seem really bad, but then later you can look back at the same moment and feel so grateful it went that way; I love that about life. Sometimes things are just really hard and really painful, but also beautiful.”

On Behind a Veil, Jess writes honestly and courageously about the conflicting emotions of love, loss, joy and pain. But even in the most delicate passages you can hear the triumph in her voice.

Dear Sir or Madam: I am not the longstanding guitarist of Jon Dee Graham, but rather a singer-songwriter in my own rite who has written and recorded 4 critically acclaimed records. In fact, I have never played guitar for any act or band besides my own. Thank you.

Billy Kemp seeking UK House Concert Dates for May 2019

Hey UK Friends, Billy Kemp here. I am planning a new tour of the UK for May of 2019.

I live near Nashville, Tennessee where I have hung my hat infrequently, since I spend so much of my time on the road. I average five or six tours annually, which take me all over the United…See More
