Hello, thank you so much for stopping by as of mid 2024 my collaborators and I are continuing to work in the background on the final stages of song creation…. oh and of course creating the film clips! These songs, tell stories of a collection of life experiences, many of which I am sure you have lived too. There are six songs released so far, and they are:

On YouTube you can view lyric videos and other bts content, on YouTube/Vevo, Apple Music & Tidal you can see the full movie-like film clips. To access all the links in one place I have made a linktree Jessie's Linktree

If you aren't a fan of streaming platforms, there is another new way to access the songs, via the Blue Shamrock Music site and I thank Stephen Brady and the crew at Blue Shamrock for teaming up with me to give everyone the option of accessing the songs in another way.  

If you are on socials - I'd love to interact with you on your platform of choice - on social media you can see my musical updates as well as all the other parts of my life including meeting my adorable farm critters, who fill my heart as much as songs do. 

Thank you again for taking the time to visit, I really appreicate it.
