Jess Skelton was born around two things: music and cow shit. You could say they’re both a part of his DNA. From bunkhouse jams where choruses of old cowboys sang Faded Love, he rebelled and embraced the angry sounds of New York Punk and Country’s raw Alt emotion. Today he’s found his center amidst the contrast of changing times and changing towns. His music is honest, real, and unmanufactured, like all good Country has been, and should be. A constant in a slippery world of trends. A good song should punch you in the gut, and he’s winding up on you right now. Fans of meaningful lyrics and real instruments will find much to like about Jess’ newest release and fans of Texas Music will find a new name to add to their favorites: Jess Skelton.
Goes great with: Sex Pistols, Old 97s, Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys, Terry Allen, Joe Ely
