Jessica Lynn: the New Woman in Country
Being hailed as 'the New Woman in Country', and 'Shania's Successor', Jessica Lynn looks set to become a household name. In the last two years, the New York singer-songwriter has completed three highly successful nationwide tours of the US, and has seen her first two full-length concert television specials (This Much Fun – Live from the Winery at St. George, and Jessica Lynn - Takin' Over - Live from The Paramount) met with rave reviews and seen by millions.
She has sung her country’s National Anthem twice in New York’s famed Madison Square Garden by special invite, signed a major deal with publishing giant Round Hill Music that had her in Nashville writing with today’s top hit writers, and wrapped up three national summer tours sharing stages with Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, Hank Williams Jr., The Band Perry, Thompson Square, Jake Owen, Sammy Kershaw, Clint Black, Montgomery Gentry, and Phil Vassar to name, err, more than a few..!
Last year, Jessica hit the road with country legend, Jo Dee Messina, for a west coast tour, and recently had the honour of opening for the queen of country music herself, Loretta Lynn.
Her high-energy and dynamic live show has garnered rave reviews from critics worldwide with the CBS Evening National News labelling her a 'rocket force'.
Last year, Jessica also toured Canada, and made her first musical trip across the pond to play shows in Europe; she also released her debut, self-titled EP. The first official music video and single from that EP, Not Your Woman, made it to number one for four weeks in a row on 'The Iceman's Top 40 New Country Chart'. It should be noted that The Iceman’s chart is the only New Country Countdown show listed and recognised in the 2016 Country Music Association’s Industry Guide. So that's some going.
This year, Jessica and the band are travelling around the world once again with a busy schedule that includes a summer long European/UK tour in support of her brand new EP, Look At Me That Way. Produced and co-written in Belgium by acclaimed Producer Patrick Hamilton (Katherine Jenkins, David Garrett), it includes three new cuts that will be making their way to UK and European radio this summer.
Jessica played at Stereo in Glasgow on Wednesday, took to the stage at Wolverhampton's Slade Rooms last night, and descends on our capital this evening with a show at The Lexington in Islington. Tomorrow you can catch her at Ramblin' Man in Maidstone, Kent.
