Jessica Stuart Few
World-class indie folk-jazz power-trio, The Jessica Stuart Few are one of the hottest groups around. The band's sophomore album, Two Sides to Every Story (3/12/13), was released to critical acclaim (dubbed, ‘endlessly charismatic', by The Globe and Mail's Brad Wheeler) with lead single 'Don't Ya' being proclaimed ‘the perfect 3-minute pop song', and taking CBC Radio One's 'Song Of The Week'. Several music award nominations later, the band continues to enjoy their songs in regular rotation on Bravo! TV, CBC and indie radio, with their recent Japanese edition album release (9/11/13) appearing on commercial radio charts in Japan, hitting #85 on the Tokio Top 100 and #38 on FM North Wave. Jessica's unprecedented take on the Japanese koto (13-stringed harp), her exceptional guitar work, and signature songwriting are innovative and refreshing, earning The ‘Few main stage performances at festivals worldwide. While musing on dichotomies throughout the new album, Stuart exhibits a pitch-perfect vocal sensibility reminiscent of Joni Mitchell, with stunning harmonies proudly laid free of auto-tune. After a year of inspirational touring throughout North America and Asia, the band's momentum has generated incredible enthusiasm internationally, laying an exciting groundwork for the year ahead.
