In The Spotlight

Jess Knights – “Leave Me For The Last Time”

Native to Calgary, this Canadian singer and songwriter spent time living in Germany, Thailand and the United States. Although classically-trained as an opera singer, her one-of-a-kind sound explores the worlds of country, blues and soul. Inspired by the legendary voices of Etta James, Amy Winehouse and Janis Joplin, she debuted with the dive bar-dipped grit of her single “Won’t Wait” in 2018.

Belting out an emotional tale of love and loss, her new single wraps classic soul in her characteristic powerhouse sound. Teasing her upcoming debut album “Best Kind Of Light”, expected to drop on May 20th, it’s the buoyant beat, fiery electric guitar and sweltering organ that make this a blistering jam. And with her fierce and passionate vocals, this is an empowering slice of mighty red-hot soul.

Jerry Leger – “Read Between The Lines”

Based in Toronto, this Canadian singer and songwriter released the first of nine studio albums back in 2005, introducing his love for all things vintage and a faith in Rock ‘n’ Roll as a way to unite people. Drawing inspiration from legends such as Lou Reed, Elvis Costello and The Everly Brothers, to name but a few, his spirited, eclectic sound truly found the limelight with his 2014 album “Early Riser”.

Channeling his inner Roy Orbison, his new single delves into the soulful rock of the sixties. Taken from his latest album “Time Out For Tomorrow”, released last year, the howling electric guitar takes the listener by the ear and draws you in, where his melancholy-filled voice tells its heart-wrenching tale. And with a punchy rhythm and a plucky piano, this is one retro trip that touches your soul.
