"Jessie's songs seem to be incantations leading us into collective memories of the feminine archetypes of wise woman, maiden and child. At times the older woman sings to the younger or they merge creating an atmosphere of dreams and visions. Her voice ranges from the steely country girl to Celtic woman of the highlands, with a mastery and ease of guitar playing. Throughout her lyrics, we are invited to rivers, trees, flowers, and rocks, sometimes by walking, and often by flying."
"Over the last few years, Jessie Gray has distinguished herself as one of Ithaca’s most promising singer-songwriters. Her 2019 solo debut, “Through the Woods,” was one of Ithaca’s top releases of the year, spotlighting her ability to blend earthy, homespun lyrics with sparse instrumentation and haunting vocals to create intriguing narratives that draw in the listener. Blending folk, country, and blues influences, Gray’s recent material shows continued growth, with her winsome voice showing both strength and vulnerability over her propulsive acoustic guitar grooves."
