Home Sweet Home
'Laced with colorful electronics and textural subtleties that make this stunning folk pop feel almost orchestral, Jessie Holladay, like Kate Fenner or Leni Stern or an incredibly more creative Shawn Colvin, weaves a mesmerizing atmosphere of bittersweet, poignant, totally charming and moving pop- earthy, rootsy, with light touches of twang that tug at the heart strings. The way whiskey seems to warm every chilly cell in your body, radiating from your gut, this folk pop is both cozy and intoxicating.' 'A gorgeous album that is reminiscent of the Cowboy Junkies, Lucinda Williams and Beth Orton. The sound is beautiful, crisp, clear and lush with tenderness. I love it when I get albums and I can hear the love and passion the artist has for their music. Every ounce of this disc works.' Dustin Landrum, Shut Eye Records 'Honest, thoughtful, heartfelt music sung with a sweet softness and sincerity, these songs are crafted with a unique, slightly eccentric sense of melody and rhythm that is at once exotic and familiar. Creative, unpretentious, and not easily categorized, Jessie's songs are a welcome departure from the 'more of the same'. 'My ears have been a bit saturated recently. In order to recover I've retreated to what I think of as 'pure' music.....Coltrane, Art Blakey, Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, Sinatra, The Beatles, and Jessie Holladay. Her new album, Home Sweet Home, takes me to a place I like to go back to over and over again.' Don Conoscenti.
