Jessie Lynn Ritter


Bio

Jessie Ritter is a country singer/songwriter based in Pensacola, Florida. She grew up on farms in Southeast Missouri, fishing with her family before homework began and making up her first songs—performed mostly to the neighbor’s livestock. Jessie left home at eighteen to pursue her education in Tennessee. During her years in Nashville she earned a degree from Belmont University’s School of Music and developed her own voice in the vibrant songwriting community of Music City. While attending college Jessie wrote and recorded her first EP. Stories Told blends traditional country, modern folk, and Jessie’s unique songwriting. Ranging from quirky love songs like "Talking in General" to the dark roots revival "Gypsy River,” and the ever-lovable pop/country title track, “Stories Told,” this debut project showcases the depth of Jessie’s heart. Just weeks after graduation Jessie Ritter began her full time music career. She spent two years traveling the world singing on cruise ships. Nightly performances of country, rock, soul, and pop classics proved Jessie comfortable on stage no matter what the event calls for. This adventure took her from Australia to Europe to New York City, and eventually Jessie landed on the Emerald Coast in Northwest Florida. You can now find her singing near the beach several nights a week as well as frequently touring through the midwest, no doubt stopping in her hometown of Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Jessie’s first full length album, Coffee Every Morning, released Summer 2018, solidifies her place as a true professional in this industry. Totally modern pop/country tracks like “Meet Your Mother” will have you singing along in the car on a sunny day. “Where You Go” and “No Matter What” make you long for that forever kind of love, while the introspective title track “Coffee Every Morning” might have you crying into your morning cup of Joe. Jessie penned every track on the album with one exception— a folksy cover of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” that she has beautifully made her own. Though only at the beginning of her career, Jessie has spent thousands of hours on stage and written songs that hold their own alongside today’s chart-toppers. An early addiction to country radio will forever inspire her original material. And today her favorite writers and artists—Lori McKenna, Miranda Lambert, Natalie Hemby, Cam—all influence her songwriting. Jessie continues to write original music and tell stories that speak deeply of the human experience and finding a unique path in this beautiful world.
