Jess Klein/Joseph Parsons Tour Promotional Materials
Jess Klein (Blue Rose Records)
Over a career that spans more than a decade and a half and has won her a devoted worldwide fan base, Jess Klein—who possesses what Mojo magazine calls “one of those voices you want to crawl up close to the speakers to listen to” has pursued a remarkable creative evolution that’s seen her dig ever deeper for resonant emotional insights, while continuing to refine her eloquently melodic, effortlessly accessible songcraft. Jon Pareles of The New York Times calls her “a songwriter with a voice of unblinking tenacity…who finds parables in the everyday and also finds humanity behind the archetypal.”
The Rochester, NY native who now calls Hillsborough, NC her home began writing songs as a college student in Kingston, Jamaica, and is known for staking out brave lyrical and musical territory with such albums as Wishes Well Disguised (1998), Draw Them Near (2000), Strawberry Lover (2005), City Garden (2006), Bound to Love (2009), Behind A Veil (2012) and Learning Faith (2014) which Folk Radio UK calls “Unquestionably the finest album of her impressive career.” Before moving to North Carolina, Jess spent eight years soaking up the live music culture of Austin, TX. Bootleg (2015) Jess’s live, full band album captures the dynamism of Jess onstage, backed by some of Austin’s top players. Jess was named a 2015 Finalist in the highly regarded Kerrville New Folk Competition.

Joseph Parsons (Blue Rose Records/Edel)
Parsons, an east coast & southern US native, has made his name by consistently delivering exceptional song driven studio & live CD’s along with a rigorous touring schedule. He currently lives in Berlin, Germany.
With topical & thematic songwriting, Parsons brings an intensely personal live show. His expressive and road weary voice envelop us into the songs’ characters like few can. He founded groups US Rails (USA & EU), Parsons Thibaud (EU), Hardpan (EU) & 4 Way Street (USA). But his personal shows are the ones he feels most at home with; living in his natural habitat. Touring continental Europe, Parsons performs 100+ shows a year.
Joseph is supporting his 2016 release ‘The Field The Forest’, a double EP-CD that is garnering rave reviews in Europe.
