Nashville-based Jessie Baylin melds Pop, Jazz, Blues, and Western in a way that evokes the sounds of Burt Bacharach & Dionne Warwick with hints of KD Lang and Camera Obscura’s Tracyanne Campbell. And yet, she still has her own unique sound.

Beautiful music, resonant voice, … I love it!

The single, “Hurry Hurry,” is from the new album, Little Spark — released by her own label, Blonde Rat Records. If you’d also like to hear the studio version of this track, you can check out the official video, HERE, directed by her pal Scarlett Johansson.

From the 1991 album The Real Ramona, the song ‘Not Too Soon’ was penned by singer/songwriter Tanya Donelly. She left Throwing Muses shortly thereaftertaking bass player Fred Abong with her, to form the 2-time Grammy-nominated band, Belly. Belly’s debut album, Star, featured the huge radio/Mtv hit ‘Feed the Tree‘.

After Tanya’s departure, Kristin Hersh, the other half of the Throwing Muses singer/songwriter duo, continued onward with Muses drummer David Narcizo, releasing three albums over the proceeding four years, spawning memorable songs like ‘Bright Yellow Gun‘. 

Donelly would eventually rejoin with Hersh for Throwing Muses reunion shows, and she contributed backup vocals to songs on Throwing Muses’ 2003 self-titled album.
