Jessye DeSilva writes songs that are lyrically rich and emotionally candid. Jessye's piano-driven brand of folk rock explores themes of growth, loss, and empowerment through a queer lens. Independent music blog The Ark of Music calls DeSilva's debut album "Utterly tender-hearted. Warm and sincere. At times, uncomfortably honest…. DeSilva’s debut, solo album, Hoarfrost And Crocus Shoots, will approach you softly, stare you squarely in the eyes, and demand your attention." Jessye will be joined at the MFA by guitarist Russell Turnquist and percussionist Greg DeSimone (both of The Rusted Bucket Band), and fiddle player Sophie Wellington.
