Described by American Songwriter as “country arena rock”, Jessica Lynn is thrilled to announce the dates and venues for her new 2023 UK headline tour.
Her 7-show tour will take place in July 2023, starting on 5th July (at Junction in Cambridge); then Jessica will playin Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, Blackpool, Southampton, before finally playing The Lexington in London on 12th July. See Jessica’s website for full details of the new dates and venues.
“I have waited to so long to reschedule these dates,” says Jessica, “and I am beyond excited to return to the UK. It is one of my favorite places to play and we have been working really hard to bring you the best show we can this year. See you in July!”
Stateside, Jessica Lynn is famed for the spectacle and quality of her live shows and stagecraft — not to mention her TV specials — as well as the energy and excitement of her performances.
American Songwriter not only praised Jessica’s strength in “country arena rock” but also acknowledged her “genre-defying” range and appeal: “As a native New Yorker,” said the influential magazine, “the artist’s foundational country is heavily laced with rock and blues edges, as well as tinges of pop and soul.” What’s more, as they observed: “Love has its ups and downs and Jessica Lynn has the soundtrack for your emotional ride.”
Jessica’s music does indeed appeal to fans of Country, Country Rock and Americana, yet her appeal also reaches further afield to wider Rock-loving audiences. Proof of that was seen and heard when Jessica played Ramblin’ Man’s Outlaw Country stage back in 2017, Ramblin’ Man called her “The New Queen of Country Rock”.
With a relentless international touring schedule of 14+ countries, a pair of Top 40/Top 50 singles on country radio, and three full-length concert television specials airing nationwide in the USA, the New York singer-songwriter has been on an upward trajectory, en route to becoming a household name.
As a major step towards that, last year, Jessica released her 13-track debut album. Her first full-length record, ‘Lone Rider’ debuted 9th September 2022, hitting the top of the charts on its release weekend. On Amazon Music — as the only female and independent artist in the Top 5 — Jessica reached the #1 spot in both the USA and UK, as well as #5 in all-genre listings in the US and #3 in the UK.
Reviewing ‘Lone Rider’ for Artistic Echoes, Patrick O Heffernan said that, “Her newly released album, ‘Lone Rider’ not only puts her at the forefront of the new generation of country western singer/songwriters but in the forefront of artists of any genre. Clever songwriting that goes far beyond beer, pickup trucks and someone done somebody wrong songs, Lynn mixes social commentary with classic themes of love, fun and heartbreak, but frames them in today’s world.”
Emerging Rock Bands UK, meanwhile, proclaimed, “This is a great record. It makes you laugh, makes you cry, makes you dance and makes you think, which is what great art should do.”
Jessica has been featured on the covers of Maverick Magazine & Guitar Girl Magazine and shared stages with some of the most iconic names in the business (such as Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Loretta Lynn, ZZ Top, Richard Marx, Lonestar, Kelsea Ballerini and others). Her dynamic, high-energy performances — which showcase her powerful voice and multiple instrumental talents (playing piano, guitar, harmonica, and drums) — have garnered rave reviews from critics worldwide and built a huge, loyal, global fanbase that can be seen in her social media presence, reaching over one million people a month on Facebook alone.
Jessica also found time to livestream, bringing her music to her fans over the world on her Facebook page, becoming one of the top-rated livestreaming artists (ranking in Pollstar’s Livestream Top 10).
