I just saw Jessie Baylin for the first time this week. Her first album was a bit country, however there were 2 songs on it that I was (and still am) OBSESSED with. I went to the show just to hear those 2 songs (which she sadly didn’t play), but instead she blew away with her new material. She went rock!! Okay… mellow, 50ish soul rock… but its still ROCK and not country. I had no idea she had even changed her style, and was even rocking some leather skinny jeans.
I really liked this new collection of songs, they went with the vivid lightening perfectly. Jessie did seem a bit uncomfortable while performing again (and I’m sure Seattle’s quiet crowd wasn’t helping), but I loved it. She was obviously very happy to be up there again, and to be finally playing her new album for everyone.
The bonus on top? The Watson Twins! I’ve known about them for quite a number of years, but had never seen them either. At least they played my favorite song 🙂 (Their cover of The Cure’s, “Just Like Heaven”).
Turns out Jessie is also a TOTAL SWEETIE! I went up to say hi after the show at the merch table (which I HARDLY ever do anymore). As soon as she saw I didn’t have anything to sign, she gave me a poster 🙂 aww!
As for her new album? I love it… I finally got around to picking it up this morning, and have had it on repeat all day. Now that I know the new material so well, I can’t wait to see her again…
I didn’t take a large number of photos, but the few that I got are here:
