The static brothers first stumbled across Jess when she contributed the stand out track ‘New Skin’ to The Memory Band album ‘Oh My Days’. Sometime later whilst drinking ‘Salty Dogs’ and arguing if the Blue Horizon label was better than Giorgio Gomelsky’s Marmalade imprint Jess offered to record a version of Koko Taylors ‘Voodoo Woman’.
So here it is Van 244. As much Vinegar Joe as Julie Driscol, Jess Roberts featuring Dave and Barry Hyde, Neil Bassett (Futureheads and Hyde and Beast) and Lucas Renney (Ex. Golden Virgins).
Jess is currently completing her 1st solo album “Black Morning Blue Afternoon”.
She has previously worked with Pete Molinari, and recorded a single straight to vinyl with Pete and Little Barrie last year. You can hear her on the following 2011 releases:
“A Good Soul in Good Times” by Jess Roberts and Andy Lewis (Paul Weller Band) on Acid Jazz Records.
“Waitin So Long” by Jess Roberts and The Pimptones on RecordKicks.
