Jess Williamson’s debut album, Native State, simply doesn’t feel like your typical folk and country-inspired music from the South. Williamson’s approach is far too unique and haunting, too poetic and pointed to be lumped in with the rest of the twangy rabble. It is connected in sound and spirit to the deep heart of Texas but has the ability to transport us all to our own place of comfort, calm, and contentment. 

“Sometimes she sounds like Angel Olsen or Joanna Newsom, but more often she sounds like a coyote—lonesome and half-rabid, howling into the sparse landscapes of her songs and then pausing, as if she’s waiting for an echo.” Pitchfork

“Painting enigmatic conversations as surreal portraits with trademark baritone [vocals]… Food Will Win the War explores a space largely unexplored even in Brooklyn’s dense music scene.”
