Jessup Cellars invites you to join us for the Art House Sessions this July, August and September. Set in our Yountville Tasting Gallery with café-style seating, our intimate summer music series will feature the absolute best in emerging singer-songwriters sharing their stories through both song and open dialogue. We’ll have bites available for purchase by some of Napa Valley’s tastiest food purveyors and special tasting flights. Ten percent of each evening’s wine sales will be allocated to support local, youth music programs.
MEET JESSE THOMAS
Jesse Thomas is a singer-songwriter from Kentucky. She moved to Los Angeles in 2008 and immediately took the stage at a series of local open mic nights. Her soulful sound and original songs caught the attention of producer Jim Roach, and led to him signing her to Red Parade Music Group. Thomas worked with Roach on her debut full-length, War Dancer, which peaked at number four on iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts and charted on Billboard at No.25 on “Heatseekers” and No.16 on the folk charts. Her second album, Burn The Boats was released in spring 2014.
Over the past several years, Jesse has developed a dedicated fan base around the country, and around the world through her YouTube channel, SXSW appearances on the Hotel Cafe stage, her iTunes “free single download” with over 120K downloads, and her week-long stint as Starbucks “Pick of the Week” artist with 2.1 million downloads.
Jesse’s songs have been featured on many TV shows including, Shameless, Hart Of Dixie, Degrassi, The Vampire Diaries, The Fosters, The Real L Words, Lying Game, and more. Her song “Falling Out Of View” will play over the end credits of Decoding Annie Parker, a movie set for a 2014 theatrical release.
She has opened for John Mayer, Owl City, Dawes, Brett Dennen, Lights, Tori Kelly, Meiko, and more.
