Throwback style with a modern sound.

 

The official music video for G.G. is out now. Check it out on our video page. The raw footage for this video was shot as part of a One Take Super 8 Event put on by Cinevic.

The first single “G.G.” hit 10 weeks on the CBC Music Top 20 Countdown and is picking up airplay on Alternative Radio stations across Canada. “G.G.” plays well next to current hits from Cage The Elephant, Alice Merton, Black Keys, Elle King, Mother Mother, Muse, Flora Cash and The Beaches.

“G.G.” is an up-tempo song about perseverance, determination and kicking up dirt before you're buried in it. This song was written to remind us all to live every day like we're gonna die, but try not to actually kill ourselves.  

Joan Bessie is a brand new project from Singer/Songwriter Jessica Beach, who joined forces with multi-talented composer & musician Mary Ancheta and Producers Elisa Pansaeng and Ben Kaplan. The dream team expanded with Mother Mother drummer, Ali Siadat and legendary bass player Darren Parris to complete this full length, studio album.

The self titled album is comprised of 9 original tracks and 2 stripped down covers, including a version of Tom Waits’ “Jersey Girl”. The album delivers a range from softer tracks like "Hang On Me”, which was written as a lullaby, to the heavy survival anthem, “Last Bruise”. Joan Bessie is now available globally through all major digital retailers.

“I write music to download the words and marry them with melody, because that is my craft. My biggest purpose in sharing the music with fans is to be good company for the listener.” - JB
