Jessie's Children's Book
set for release winter 2021
“Sing, Prairie Princess, about this land you know. About the clover and the wheat fields, the dirt roads and the snow...”
A country girl celebrates the prairie and why she calls it home in this book about a child's connection to the land. Beautifully illustrated by North Dakota artist Daphne JohnsonClark and inspired by Jessie's magical childhood on her family's ranch in Western North Dakota, "Prairie Princess" lets a little girl be the expert tour guide and caretaker of the land that she knows so well and reminds us what it's like to be captivated and responsible for a place.
Jessie's new album, Playing Favorites,
available now on all platforms
This album is dedicated to my dad and his red guitar. It’s for the characters in the songs we sing and for the characters we’ve played for on flatbed trailers at county fairs, in Legion Clubs and churches, at backyard barbecues, barn dances and potluck picnics in small towns across the mid-west. When we pick up our guitars at a campfire or in the living rooms of family and friends after a good meal with good company, these are the first songs we reach for because they are familiar, safe and forgiving of our imperfections, just like old friends. On this album you will hear the voices and instruments of my dad and I, of course, but also of our friends who have so often, when we needed them most, pulled up a chair to play along. This album is for them. And it’s for my daughters, my nieces and my nephews, for my cousins and their kids and you and yours, so that you might find a familiar tune and a place to sing along.
With much love,
