INTIMATE JESSIE REID GIG London
FOLLOWING the recent release of her sublime single, ‘A Little Closer,’ Shrewsbury’s JESSIE REID plays at London’s Crossrail Place Roof Garden, E14, tomorrow, Wednesday June 7th.
Added to Spotify’s coveted ‘Most Beautiful Songs In The World’ playlist, the raw and breathtakingly beautiful indie-folk love song also features French-born, Easymess.
“Ultimately, it’s a love song, but quite an ‘unhealthy’ love song,” explains Reid.
“It’s about feeling a bit lost and unsure of yourself in a relationship and knowing things aren’t right. Despite knowing this, you still want to feel a sense of comfort and love and to be held ‘a little closer,’ to hold on to some sort of hope, for a little longer.”
A songwriter wise beyond her years, Reid’s understated, but stunning vocals and innovative percussive guitar style have already drawn comparisons with the likes of Lucy Rose, Memorial and Ben Howard.
And playing live is very much part of this young artist’s palette, with festival appearances at Black Deer Festival, Moseley Folk Festival and Green Gathering already under her belt, along with support slots for Seafret, Dan Owen, Ciaran Lavery, Bryde and Brooke Bentham, and multiple Sofar Sounds appearances across Europe, the UK and South America.
