About
Straddling the renegade worlds of alt-country, blues and soul, Jess Knights' crystal-clear voice radiates vintage soul and a sly, heart-on-her-sleeve sweetness.
Jess Knights’ hard-to-pin-down style is reflective of her own unassuming past. A classically-trained opera singer, who’s spent time living in Germany, Thailand and New Zealand, Knights has been defying convention since she started cutting her teeth in the boozy, rough-hewn dives of her native Calgary. Recalling the raw timbre of Etta James and likened to Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen and Eliza Doolittle, her crystal-clear voice radiates vintage soul and a sly, heart-on-her-sleeve sweetness. Her debut EP, Won’t Wait, recorded with members of The Flat Whites and a heavyweight cast of characters, was released on October 27, 2018.
