What people are saying...
"Jessica Long is a woman with a voice that you can't help but listen to...Long brings a balance to her songs that is hard to find elsewhere, and she works so well with her talents. It's a wonder she doesn't have more albums under her belt; she sounds like she's been at this for at least a decade already."
— Malia Thornton, This Coast
"A lot of female performers nowadays can play behind a piano or guitar and completely hold an entire crowd's attention. Jessica Long plays both of those instruments, commands an entire room, and performs like a true rock and roll artist."
— Crystal Serowka, Sounds That Matter
"Jessica's voice was stellar. It had that raw, rough edged quality we (see: me) love in female rock leads, but with a touch of innocence that captivates the audience and makes us wonder what the message behind her songs really is. She sang, played keyboard and various guitars through out the set…all done well. Her band was as high energy as she was. They moved to the music in an organic way that really showed how much they were into what they were doing."
— Raleigh On The Rocks
"Jessica Long - Gorgeous vocals steeped in folk rock tradition meets the clever, dangerously catchy wordplay and hooks of indie bands like New Pornographers and Broken Social Scene."
— The Pinhook
"We felt we needed a serious kick in the pants today -- maybe it's the gloomy weather, maybe just because it's Wednesday. We found it in "1 2 3 4" -- a song lifted from the debut album Painted by 25-year-old Durham, NC native Jessica Long. Taking a simple riff and moving it into the roll-down-the-windows and turn-it-up territory, Long makes sure we understand that there's "guitarist" right there along with "singer/songwriter."
"[Jessica is] a singer/songwriter who stands at the cusp of a music career ... she is ready for wherever the music takes her."
— Dawn Baumgartner Vaughan, Durham Herald-Sun
"These guys are young. YOUNG young, which means they have time and energy to make some serious waves. And from what I'm reading on the webs, it would appear that is what appears to be happening!"
— Karla Anne, Aural Memories
