Jessie Reid’s folk-influenced, percussive fingerstyle guitar playing has drawn comparisons with the likes of Ben Howard, Lucy Rose and Nick Mulvey.
Her latest single has amassed over one million streams with support from Spotify editorial curators and over the past year she has been featured by BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson and Chris Hawkins, BBC Wales’s Janice Long and BBC Introducing in Shropshire. Jessie was shortlisted for the Glastonbury Emerging Talent competition and has travelled as far as New York and Brazil in the promotion of her debut singles. Jessie has also enjoyed supporting and touring with the likes of Seafret, Dan Owen, Ciaran Lavery and Brooke Bentham closer to home.
‘Absolutely sublime. Delicious grooving guitar and delicate textured vocals… we await news of further releases with bated breath” – Tom Robinson
‘Jessie impresses with her talent for creating rich, full-sounding folk music, using very few components. For me, that’s what gives her songs such an effortless feeling; all the parts have a purpose and are perfectly in harmony with each other. Nothing is out of place’ – Fresh on the net
There’s truly something to be said about artists that can stop you in your tracks with a few simple elements, and the Shropshire-born Jessie Reid is one of those artists. – Earmilk
