Born in Gillette, New Jersey, a Nashville based singer/songwriter, Jessie Baylin has released a free 5-track EP “Pleasure Center” last month, it was recorded at home in her living room with the help of Richard Swift. “Pleasure Center” collects her covers of Sonic Youth (‘Little Trouble Girl’), Arthur Russell (‘I Couldn’t Say It To Your Face’), Fleetwood Mac (‘Storms’), and Thin Lizzy (‘A Song For While I’m Away’), except her own composition ‘White Noise.’ Available via her soundcloud site, HERE.


“I drew a lot from people like Burt Bacharach and Dionne Warwick, the Brill Building writers. But I didn’t want to make a retro, throwback kind of album. Nostalgia is fine, I have a definite fondness for that, but I didn’t want people to listen and think I was trying to recapture something from the past.”

Jessie Baylin‘s forthcoming third full-length “Little Spark,” will be released on January 17th, 2012 via Blonde Rat. It was produced by Kevin Augunas (Cold War Kids, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros) last fall at Fairfax Recordings, and features so many guest musicians like Waddy Wachtel, Jim Keltner, Greg Leisz, The Watson Twins and Jimmie Haskell….. and Richard Swift (who played most of the instruments) as the album’s chief arranger.

2007年にジェシー・ハリスとノラ・ジョーンズが揃ってプロデュースしたデビュー・アルバム『You』を出したナッシュヴィルのSSW、ジェシー・ベイリンが新年早々、4年振りにリリースする3作目のアルバム『Little Spark』では、ゲストに名だたるミュージシャンがクレジットされてますが、リチャード・スウィフトがチーフ・アレンジャーとして八面六臂の大活躍。
