Jessie Reyez ~ Figures

JESSIE REYEZ ~ Figures Artwork!

Who is JESSIE REYEZ?  An extremely talented unsigned artist (not for long IMO) from Toronto!

My first impression of “Figures:  A uniquely raw yet powerful waltz-like journey through a tormented mind of battling emotions!

My take : One of my favorite moments while listening to new music is when a song instantly stops me in my tracks.  Pulling me unknowingly into an out-of-body experience where everything around me disappears and all that I hear and see is what I feel.  Upon first listen, “Figures” by newcomer JESSIE REYEZ does just that.  Grabbing me immediately with an emotionally piercing vocal and displaying a confident vulnerability that is simply captivating.  Out in front of a crisp electric guitar driven backdrop, JESSIE lays out her thoughts about a certain relationship in a way that is both absorbing and irresistible.  Allowing the listener to step into her shoes and to feel the helpless magnetism of still being in love after being hurt.   JESSIE REYEZ may have started getting attention as a guest vocalist with the likes of LONDON FUTURE, KING LOUIE and TIM SUBY, but “Figures” proves to me that the sky is the limit with this one.   An amazing song, a distinctive vocal and an intensely personal music video performance that is completely memorable!  Great debut!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
