New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Off the heels of a scorching set at her Lollapalooza debut, LA-based singer-songwriter Jesse
Jo Stark has released the latest single and video, "tornado," from her debut full-length album DOOMED (out September
21st). Purchase and stream "tornado": https://amzn.to/3ApX6wY
Speaking about the track, Jesse
Jo says "it's a story of letting a feeling take you to heaven then bury you 6 feet in the ground...somewhere in the desert".
Unlike recent single releases, "modern love" and "so bad," "tornado" fully leans into Stark's country roots. With a steady grounding beat, the track offers both a melancholic and wistful take on a passionate and all-consuming love. Shot entirely on VHS, the "tornado" music video offers an intimate view into the thoughts of the protagonist played by Stark's sister, Frankie Stark. Though a deviation from the prior singles' stories of revenge, "tornado" further exposes a more personal side of Stark's storytelling set to define DOOMED.
Jo Stark will bring DOOMED to life at her first ever headlining shows in London on September
30th, Los Angeles on October 15th, and New York City on October 19th with more shows to be announced. For full ticket information can be found here: jessejostark.com/pages/tour.

so bad feat. Jesse
love is a dream
"A gritty spit-glob of punk-minded blues and country, she's super talented." - NME
"A musical genius...a total babe." - Noisey
"One part Patsy Cline, one part Cramps, and a multitude of ingredients that only Jesse
Jo could conjure - this girl is a badass." - Top40-Charts
A lifelong music obsessive who grew up surrounded by what she describes as a "lot of hard-working and artistically advanced people," Stark wrote her first song at the age of seven and soon started playing the guitar, then formed her first band, It's Complicated, when she was just 11 years old. With wide ranging material inspired by everything from country to soul to blues to punk, the Los Angeles-based artist conjures up an atmosphere informed by her intense fascination with the more macabre edge of the pop-culture underground: Elvira, The Cramps and late-'80s horror movies. As the daughter of the founders and owners of American brand Chrome Hearts, she's simultaneously pursued her passions for music and design, emerging as a creative force behind the brand and designing custom items for musicians like Post Malone, Orville Peck, and Yungblud. She's also launched her own merch company called Deadly Doll (named for one of her songs), which began with creating merch for her tour and soon snowballed into a successful merch company, with Stark taking the helm and designing each piece herself. With her music-career milestones including opening for Guns N' Roses
and Jane's Addiction
and touring with The Heavy, Stark started releasing singles as a solo artist in 2017 and soon amassed an expansive body of work. Last year, French fashion house Balmain and Channel 4 enlisted her to star in its five-part episodic drama Fracture, for which Stark created the original music (a selection of songs featured in her four-track EP, A Pretty Place To Fall Apart).
