Lansdowne House Concerts - REVIEW

posted by Jessica Rhaye - Wednesday, October 07, 2015


The Jessica RhayeTrio just played 2 nights at Lansdowne House Concerts to packed houses. The trio consists of long standing lead guitar, Chris Braydon (Penny Blacks and Reagan Rayguns)and multi instrumentalist, Sandy Mackay, on the double bass. The concertswere a mix of songs from Jessica's four albums with a number of outstanding covers. One of the most moving of the covers was "Ice Flow", written by fellow Saint John singer songwriter, Brent Mason. Jessica's tunes are largley written about people, some real and some fictitious and her tales run the gamut of emotions forming a blend of folk, country and pop tunes. Her turn of phrase grabs you. For example "I hear a clock and it begs for my attention". As well her vocals can be described as crystal clear and melodic and able to soar above her material. There are a number of impressive co-writes on her most recent album, Far Gone Lullabies, including "You Know Me Better", on which she shares credit with Ron Sexsmith and "It is All Right" written with Royal Wood. Jessica even sang a song she wrote at 8 years of age but we all agree it could easily have been written by a 28 year old. Jessica graciously invited her bandmates (also songwriters) to play some of their tunes which was enthusiastically received by the audiences. The Jessica Rhaye Trio is a truly outstanding New Brunswick group. We can't wait to have them back.

NEW Video - We'll Get By

posted by Jessica Rhaye - Wednesday, October 08, 2014


I would like to share the video for my song "We'll Get By". I wrote this song for my best friend of 22 years. This song came pouring out of me while anxiously awaiting the birth of our first child, our son Ryder. As any new parent, thoughts of uncertainty, excitement and feeling terrified and overjoyed all started running wild through my mind. We now have 2 beautiful children who make us laugh and love and enjoy life even more than ever before. We take each day as it comes and feel thankful and blessed for all we have.

The video features my precious family and was filmed last fall in the back field of my parents home where I grew up. The video was shot and produced by Abi Rienhart of FiftySeven Designs and the song features the fabulous Saint John String Quartet. Hope you enjoy and please feel free to share. xo
