ABOUT JESS RAY: Jess Ray is a singer/songwriter and producer from North Carolina, the land of ocean, woods, rolling hills, and mountains. Jess’ music, much like herself, occupies two worlds effortlessly. Intensely spiritual yet deeply real, her songs soar with joy and hope without ignoring the reality of our human struggle. In 2018, Jess headed back to the studio to record her sophomore album, PARALLELS + MERIDIANS. While there are some familiar elements present, this new project feels like new territory for the artist, whose writing has ventured much further into the space between people. In her signature alto, Jess sings of her own heartbreak and joy with an authenticity that only comes from real life. Jessraymusic.com
