Artist Profile : Jessica Rhaye #ECMWMNB2014

JessicaRhaye-72A deep sense of warmth and comfort permeates Far Gone Lullabies, the fourth album by Canadian singer-songwriter Jessica Rhaye, released in the fall 2013. The stunning collection showcases Jessica’s soaring, winsome vocals, as well as her versatile songwriting, including co-writes with Canadian indie staples such as Ron Sexsmith and Royal Wood.

Folk-flavored, with threads of pop woven through, Far Gone Lullabies is Jessica’s third album produced and engineered by the award-winning duo of Ed Woodsworth and Jamie Foulds. It follows up her multi-award nominated Good Things (2010) and her sophomore release, Short Stories (2006), which saw her nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award for Contemporary Singer of the Year

In a career that has spanned more than a decade, Jessica has taken her music far from home, singing in Niger, Africa, at the Francophone Games, and touring the U.K. with Matt Andersen and Dave Gunning. A versatile live performer, she has graced stages big and small, including the famed Mariposa Folk Festival, a solo show in Hollywood, and a showcase at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Her songs have graced the small screen, too, featured on the CMT reality series, Unstable and CBC Television’sHeartland. Jessica was also a featured vocalist in the theme song for Taste Buds on TVO Kids.
