Invoking the soulfulness of Joni Mitchell, the raw power of Brandi Carlile, and the enchantment of First Aid Kit, Jessica Malone is not a mere blend of her influences but an acknowledgement of them—mixed with something purely singular and unique.
Malone combines a sultry voice, introspective lyrics, and an earthy folk-roots backing band to create both a healing balm for troubled times and a soundtrack for happier days, mastering the art of the solo acoustic songbird confession while also celebrating a rambunctious and rollicking full sound.  
The winner of several SAMMIES (Sacramento Music Awards) as Artist of the Year, Singer-songwriter of the Year, and Folk/Bluegrass Artist of the Year, Malone, who holds a BA in Vocal Performance, currently resides in Northern California, where she performs regularly with her band. 
Nat Keefe (Hot Buttered Rum) describes Jessica Malone’s performance as, “the real deal. Jessica has an honest voice and sings to connect, to comfort, to celebrate.”
Her fourth soon-to-be-released album, “The Alley Avenue Session,” explores themes both personal and universal. On her new intimate new track, “House With a Yard,” Malone leads with her decade-ago struggles with alcoholism—“I was young and stubborn as a thorn on a rose”—and concludes with a current truth: “I can’t afford a house in California, with a yard” Finger-picked “Damn” explores the timeless ins and outs of relationships (“Now you’re leavin’, what other choice do I have?”), while fiddle-led fan-favorite “Porch Swing Sundays” chalks it all up to the mystery of nature: “That old moon, she’s pulling me again—must have me confused with the tide.”
For fans of soulful folk, explorative alternative, and those wishing to reach the true heart of rock & roll, Malone’s music is highly recommended as an authentic avenue to a rendezvous with a kindred spirit. And after opening for the likes of John Paul White and Front Country—while sharing festival billings with Robert Plant, Avett Brothers, and Trampled By Turtles —Jessica Malone is well on her way to the national spotlight.   Malone recently  released her brand new single “Sweet Sunlight” and has new music on the way.
