JESSIE CLEMENT distinct sonic style reflects her heavy James Taylor and John Mayer influences. This 20-year-old’s grew up in a family completely immersed in music in Murfreesboro, TN. Now, she dives deep into her musical roots in her introspective, coming-of-age record ‘Slow Motion Philosophies,’ out via Corum Hill Records. The album is a collection of poetry that chronicles a young woman’s journey into adulthood as she experiences heartbreak, healing, and self-discovery — all set to the tone of vintage R&B grooves, loose Jazz swagger, and crystalline vocals.
