The avant-folk trio interweaves old traditions with their own music. The band plays mostly Jessie's songs and Fabiana's compositions, but also music from the Celtic and Appalachian cultures. Their sound is reminiscent of artists like Joni Mitchell, Sam Amidon and Lankum, while the song lyrics are inspired by Rilke and Ovid. Jessie Monk create an atmosphere of tangible yet experimental folklore and thoughtfulness, enchanting with their joyful and jubilant playing style.
