Give us a little bio about you.
Internationally touring, Nashville recording artist Jessica Lynne Witty moved to the U.S. from Denmark in 2010 and immediately took the Pacific Northwest by storm. She has opened for National Acts such as Diamond Rio, Dustin Lynch, Keith Anderson, and Trace Adkins, played legendary stages such as the Gorge Amphitheater and the Oregon Jamboree in addition to taking top honors as the Washington State Winner of the Texaco Country Showdown.

The result is a fresh, contemporary take on country music with female power at the forefront, at a moment when the industry and the world is sorely ready for it.

What made you go into music?
I have always been utterly drawn to music, but because of discouragement and fear I never pursued it. I pursued just about everything but music. Turns out, that doesn’t make you happy. I took a full decade off from even being around music until I found myself completely unhappy and depleted and in an abusive relationship. After breaking free from that and having a transformational experience in India, I finally went for my dream of being a country artist. That was 10 years ago and I’ve been at it ever since.

Who are your influences?
I have very broad influences, I listened to The Beach Boys, The Carpenters and the Everly Brothers when I was little. Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston when I was a pre-teen and then finally when I got into country music as a teenager it was Faith Hill and Reba McEntire. These days I listen to a lot of different styles to get my inspiration. Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of bluegrass, I adore Rhonda Vincent.

Are you a signed?
I am signed to a booking agent and have a publicist, but I am my own manager and I am not signed by any label.

Your new single ‘Beer Run’ is out now, tell us more about the single.
Beer Run is kind of a “Thelma & Louise” meets “Goodbye Earl”. Or it’s my take on that, anyways. The scope of the song is “he went on a beer run and never came home”. And that’s the story we’re sticking to. It’s kind of a lighter approach to the more serious cause of domestic abuse. Part of the proceeds from the song will be going to a domestic abuse non-profit

What was the writing and recording process like?
I had come up with the idea for the song years ago, but it was just sitting in my idea-bank waiting for me to find the time to actually write the song. In that sense, COVID was a blessing. I found the time to sit down and finish the song. Once it was done I brought it to Nashville with a handful of other songs. Once again Larry Beaird studios were able to read my mind and create the exact soundscape I had in mind for this song.

What is the meaning behind the single?
I was in an abusive relationship years ago and because of this I know how hard it can be to break out of this without a network. How important it is to learn to feel safe again. If I can share to women out there struggling in dysfunctional or abusive relationships that “you are not alone” and help empower them to take their lives and their power back, that’s what I’m trying to bring awareness to with this song.

Who did you work with on the single?
I recorded it at Beaird Music Group in Nashville, TN and it was mastered by Yes Master Studios also in Nashville. I wrote the song alone and created all the artwork with photos by Barbara Potter Photography.

Describe the track in two words.
Heartfelt. Important

Will we see an EP or Album and if so, what can we expect from it?
Yes! I am just now planning the release of my upcoming album “Take The Lead”. After a year of non stop singles, it will be fun to tie a bow on it and put it out as a collection. Each song has a role to play on this album. I will also be holding on to two of the songs that will not be made public until the album release.

What else can we expect in 2021?
I’m getting ready to hit the road. After the strange year of 2020 I am excited to finally get to play live in front of people again.

Where do you see yourself now in 5 Years?
Honestly? Right where I’m at. I hope to be playing bigger and better shows. I hope to be putting out better and better music. And I hope to have bought my forever home with my husband and dog. I also plan to have a second home in Nashville by then, with all the time I am spending there. But right now, my life actually looks exactly like my dream life.

What quote or saying do you always stick by?
Shoot for the moon and you just might land among the stars.
