Playlist: Jessie James
Thu, 30 Apr 2009 08:23:08
Jessie James is just what pop music needs. She can belt out infectious melodies with the best of them, but she eschews the veneer of Hollywood glitz and glamour. Plus, she's not afraid to mix up her sound with a country edge, farther separating her from the pack.
Jessie has quite a diverse musical palette too. She talked to ARTISTdirect.com in this exclusive feature about what's on her iPod.
Check out Jessie's playlist below and be sure to pick up her debut on Island/Def Jam this summer!
Jessie James' Playlist:
1. Ray LaMontagne
"I really like him. I was just listening to him on a plane, and he always puts me in a good mood."
2. Shelby Lynne
"I listen to her frequently."
3. Zero 7
"I sing really loud, and I have a big voice. Most people would think that I like to listen to music that's similar to mine. However, I really like to listen to very chilled-out music. I love Zero 7. It's very easy music to listen to. It's nice to relax with this because I'm belting all the time [Laughs]."
