ALL ABOUT JESS MARTIN
Songwriter - Storyteller
Queer artist, Texas-raised liberal, transplanted New Englander and former Danish ex-pat. Songwriting presents an opportunity to express the intersection of these identities. Singing provides the means to share her stories.
Soulful Southern-Baptist-rooted lyrics, unrequited obsessive love songs, and queer identity all play themes in the bluesy-punk style of Jess Martin’s music – pushing against gendered expectations.
