jesse sykes & the sweet hereafters

there’s no appropriate categorization for this kind of music.
*drink an ice cold glass of whiskey and light a cigarette.*

the music will gently enter you. the beautiful vocals of jesse sykes are slow and dark inside a western style of alt-country that blends different subtle influences ultimately making the results of her own sound nothing less than warm and natural. to see the pureness of this lady’s voice, please watch the morning becomes eclectic live performance at kcrw.

i came from the great lakes
and watched them turn dry
the sky turned black
and i cried

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
