“Robertson is a true poet”

“Jessi Robertson’s music gently overtakes you like a dark and beautiful opiate. Her essence is carried along within the soul of the album, which makes listening to Robertson an intensely personal experience. Once you breathe her in, you’ll be addicted and you will not want to leave her sensual twilight world of danger and willing sacrifice.”
– Allen Foster,


“From a soothing lullaby to a wild rock and roll wail…

Jessi Robertson has the kind of effortless vocal range that others can only dream of. A singer/songwriter and skilled multi-instrumentalist (rhythm guitar, piano, organs, and synths), Jessi is fascinated not by perfection but by life’s contradictions and what she calls “the accidental beauty revealed in the imperfections, the hopeless romantic who spurns love, the stubborn pride covering a grievous wound, the unshakable faith that no amount of darkness can kill.” Those themes traverse her soul-baring sophomore release, I Came From the War, the majority of which was recorded live at The Bunker Studio in Brooklyn, New York. Backed by band members Omer Leibovitz (Courtesy Tier, Dan Abraham), Alex Picca (Courtesy Tier, The Press), and Layton Weedeman (Courtesy Tier, Isle of Rhodes), Jessi delivers the kind of raw, powerful performances that stir the listener to ruminate on the meaning of life.”
