Jess Vincent is now living and recording in Bulgaria with her partner, the musician and producer Jozeph Chowles. Jess’s last release, Lions Den brought a brave new flavour, perhaps reflecting some of the colours and flavours of the people, stories and instruments in Jess’s new life there. This new sound takes Jess’s extraordinary talent in an exciting new direction without losing the trademark subtle arrangements on guitar, baritone uke and harmonium, and uniquely soaring vocal which have established her reputation as a highly original artist with a growing following in the alt folk/indie/Americana acoustic scene.
Jess is back in the UK for three dates in October, touring as a duo with Joe. They are releasing a new and limited edition EP ‘SHELTER’ which will only be available at these live gigs, so if you can’t go then send a friend.
Saturday 6th October at Kingskerswell Parish Church, Devon
Thursday 11th October at The Old Stables, Cricklade, Gloucestershire
Saturday 13th October on the Kenavon barge, Devizes Wharf, Wiltshire.

What people say about Lions Den
“The dictionary definition of a lion’s den is a dangerous or frightening place, but there’s no need to approach this with caution, just jump right on in.” Mike Davies folking.com
“Quite pared-down yet at the same time quite ethereal, although there are some full-on kick-out moments… and some some indie-pop dreaminess. Lions Den opens up a whole new chapter.” David Kidman, Folk Radio UK
“Incredible voice, incredible artist… each album as good as, if not better than the last.” John Godfrey Radio Troubadour
Jess will of course be playing old favourites from her previous three albums on tour.
“..one of the brightest stars out there… Vincent’s crystal-clear vocals sending shivers down the spine. ” Malcolm Carter PennyBlack Music
“Soulful, strong and utterly engrossing” Mick Tems, Folk Wales
