Jessica Mitchell ON: The Influence of  Nashville.

Published February 02, 2015

Let’s face it, we all play favourites. Including with cities. For country-folk songstress Jessica Mitchell, Nashville, Tennessee is where it’s at.

Handed a guitar by her father at the age of 13, Mitchell has been writing original songs and developing her sound ever since. Jessica’s always been a little bit country, a whole lot rock ‘n’ roll, but the town that many call ‘Music City, USA’ has helped her become a bona fide storyteller with soul, subtlety  and depth.

Mitchell currently splits her time between Toronto and Nashville, bouncing between cities to write and record material for a debut album. She dreams of moving to Nashville full-time, and with good reason.

Watch the video above to find out why Jessica was shocked during her first trip to Nashville - and just what keeps her going back.
