Jessy's set to glow
When her Dad went away for a week, Jessy Lynch snuck into his music room and taught herself to play his electric guitar. She was ten.
Since then she has never wanted to put it down, and combined with her passion for singing and performing from as early as she can remember, Jessy’s musical talent has seen her blossom into a “Lynch-pin” of the Far North live music scene.
While the other teenage girls at Trinity Bay High School were bopping to Britney Spears, Jessy was playing along to the records of classic rock bands like Led Zeppelin and 90s grunge bands like Incubus and Soundgarden.
Since then, Jessy has perfected her craft through a number of different projects and performances, including appearances at Coalescence, Tablelands Folk Festival, EcoFiesta and Palm Creek Folk Festival.
Today the result is her own unique alternative rock style which is an atmospheric ode to grunge – haunting and raw, yet delicate and gentle.
Recorded at her father David Lynch’s Mareeba recording studio, Diamond Recordings, Jessy’s eight-track debut album ‘AFTERGLOW’ will be released on online streaming platforms today, Friday November 6.
The title track is a dreamy and elevating track which Jessy says is about “falling in love - with life, with magic, with the moment.”
Spellbinding vocals, euphoric guitar licks, hard-hitting lyrics, and a light dusting of cinnamon – ‘AFTERGLOW’, is a finely tuned soundtrack of the present, and an irresistible audible antidote to drift to calmer waters of the mind.
Jessy and her band will perform a live album launch on Sunday, November 8 from 6-9pm at Elixir Music Bar, supported by Davy Simony and EVOL SeeD.
Based on Jessy’s following this is a show that will sell out fast, with only 12 tickets remaining at the time of writing. Tickets $15 from www.trybooking.com.
