Jesse Jo’s 2017 single “Deadly Doll” hints at her otherworldly je ne sais quoi equally awash in rusty twang and indiegothic soul informed by a lifelong love of Bride of Frankensteinand The Addams Family. It’s the perfect way to get to know the rock sorceress.
“When I write and perform, I inhabit some extension of myself,” she admits. “It’s the one time I feel like I’m sharing. I’m me. It’s easier for me to communicate through singing than it is just to talk. That’s where ‘Deadly Doll’came from.” It’s also a springboard for a host of new music and many more shows. Jesse Jo kicks off her next phase with a month-longEcho residency in Los Angeles.
