Jess Vincent has a highly original style which is getting noticed: “Soulful, strong and utterly engrossing” says Mick Tems, Folk Wales; “uniquely and obliquely original” Rock’n’Reel R2, her trademark subtle arrangements on guitar, baritone uke, shruti box, bass, harmonium, reveal a maturity that belies her youth, yet allowing her vulnerability to shine through.
Jess has a unique mix of ‘..accessible, tuneful folksiness, with dashes of Americana of the light-textured Appalachian variety” Folk n Roots.
Jess is currently touring with new album SHINE. At the Folk House she
will be accompanied by masterful percussionist and accomplished keyboard
player, Graham Brown.
A live review by Jon Eve, 365Bristol proclaimed: “Her eclectic mix of upbeat pop folk, downbeat ballads and delicate love songs hit every single emotion….In all honesty, I was sold as soon as I’d heard her pitch perfect vocals”
