“New Orleans' Loudest Singer-Songwriter!”
About the Songwriter
“...a voice that’s as sweet as it is raw.... seeing her live is mesmerizing.”
“Vessels is a powerhouse guitarist, and her live performance is 500% rock'n'roll.”
MUSIC FOR THE HOPEFUL-HEARTED
Jamie Lynn Vessels is a six-foot guitarist and lyricist who strives to give her listeners the same kind of support and feeling of community that she got from the music of her favorite artists, namely Sheryl Crow, Beth Hart, and Brandi Carlile.
At the age of 26, after graduating with a Master's in Criminal Justice, Jamie decided to make a dynamic life change. She moved to New Orleans to become a professional musician in an effort to make and spread music that is both life-affirming and meaningful. In early 2013, Jamie released her first self titled EP and album called "Home" and followed with "Storm Coming" in 2018, and several singles in 2019. Upcoming singles and album releases are scheduled for 2021.
NEW ORLEANS-GROWN ROCK'N'ROLL
Jamie has been likened to Lzzy Hale (Halestorm), Melissa Etheridge, and Bonnie Raitt in her live performances. After putting in the work and becoming a regular in venues throughout New Orleans and touring around southern states, she has developed a sound all her own.
Jamie’s style has transformed into emotional, mesmerizing vocals over guitar riffs that catch the ear and draw the listener in. This ability to make catchy music and weave lyrical stories has allowed Jamie to grow her fanbase and only get better with time.
