Austin native Jess Williamson dropped by Studio 1A to serenade us with tracks from her second album Heart Songs. The record, tracked and mixed in Austin, bristles with energy while maintaining that intimate, contemplative tone Williamson is known for. The throbbing banjos and electric guitars paint a desert-like scene full of space and mystery while her confessional lyrics grab at your emotions demanding a response in the form of your attention. Heart Songs reveals Williamson fearlessly letting her heart lead the way.
Listen to her studio performances and interview below.
