About Blue Funk:
The tracks on Blue Funk include originals by Joan M. Meyer and Lauren G. Semler as well as the cover Garden of Eden by John Dawson of New Riders of the Purple Sage. Blue Funk is about living in the real world of climate change, suicide, mourning, corporate greed, struggling to make ends meet, letting go, getting let go, flashing back, and in spite of it all, still finding a way to be thankful.
Jessie Rae skillfully fuses contemporary and existential themes into dynamic and spirited songs.
“This is a must have record ... The beautiful vocal melodies laid over some serious groovy guitars and rhythms will have your toe tapping the entire way!"
