Jesse Jo Stark officially released her first EP, and we’re playing it on repeat
Jesse is currently touring with Sunflower Bean, and somehow still managed to give us this five-track beauty. The songs off the EP could be compared to the vibe of Lana Del Rey mixed with a bit of rock and mystery.
The album was written and produced by Jesse Jo, her guitarist Thomas Hunter, and Dan Taylor (The Heavy). Steve Jones from Sex Pistols (uh, hell yes!) also makes a special appearance on guitar for the lead track of the EP, “Dandelion.”
Basically, a lot of brilliant minds went into the making of this EP.
Jesse Jo has over 1 million Spotify plays, and has certainly earned her place as a powerhouse in rock – opening for acts such as Guns N’ Roses, Jane’s Addiction, and now, Sunflower Bean. The singer is also headlining her own month-long residency at The Echo in Los Angeles.
She has always been obsessed with David Bowie and Fleetwood Mac, and her music represents these artists and their era. Jesse is the future of rock, but always gives a nod to those artists who she has long been inspired by.
When we asked Jesse about the inspiration behind her new single, she made it clear that the dandelion means something to her. “The dandelion flower actually owns two faces. One is a bright, light yellow. The other is a delicate, white puff that’s gentle to the touch. Love, to me, is like a dandelion. Each time it fades away, it grows back to dance with you – time after time.”
