Folk Bands and Artists
Jess Vincent’s fourth release brings something new. Not only (having been home recorded and produced in Old School Studios, Bulgaria with her partner Jozeph Chowles) can we hear a thread of the people, stories, colours, flavours and instruments from Jess’s new life there, including Joe’s arrangements and musical contribution, Lions Den is also Jess’s bravest so far. “Since moving from the UK I’ve felt I had to step right back and look at the past in order to not repeat the same old mistakes. I decided to look my demons straight in the face for this album, and in doing so I’ve had to deal with many things I had kept hidden inside for a long time. This album and these songs are a true reflection of where I am now.”
This new sound takes Jess’s extraordinary talent in an exciting new direction without losing the trademark subtle arrangements on guitar, baritone uke and
harmonium, and uniquely soaring vocal which have established her reputation as a highly original artist with a growing following in the alt folk/indie/Americana acoustic scene.
“The dictionary definition of a lion’s den is a dangerous or frightening place, but there’s no need to approach this with caution, just jump right on in.” Mike Davies folking.com
“Incredible voice, incredible artist… each album as good as, if not better than the last”
John Godfrey Radio Troubadour
Jess will of course be playing old favourites from her previous three albums on tour.
