“I bought this baritone guitar (her name is Barry) at the Guitar Emporium in Louisville, Kentucky, and it’s this black glitter sparkle Gretsch,” Jessica explained. “It’s what got me into making another record and obsessed with playing … I found that guitar and I was like, ‘This is a sign from Satan to buy this guitar’ and I started playing guitar more.”


Thank goodness she did, or we might never have gotten “Standing in the Sun”, the song that despite its title contains the darkened, tepid grunge tones that her latest album, Make My Head Sing… is known for. Just in time for All Hallows Eve, has debuted the new video for the track, which took place in a Nashville graveyard. Directed by Joshua Shoemaker, You can watch it HERE.

“Standing in the Sun” will also appear on Jessica’s new yellow 7″, coming out in November in a limited run of 500 copies. Head below to pre-order the record and check out Jessica’s upcoming November tour dates.
