Jesse Jo Stark announces North American tour; watch acoustic “slayer” video

Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter and designer Jesse Jo Stark released her debut LP, DOOMED, last year, and she's announced a tour supporting it. She'll be out in September and October in North America, including stops in NYC, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Chicago, Denver, Seattle, San Francisco, and more, wrapping up in Los Angeles. "so excited to go on the road n play music to n with people again…been too long…let’s rock n roll baby," Jesse says. See all dates below.

The NYC show is at Bowery Ballroom on September 18, and tickets are on sale now.

To go with her tour announcement, we have the premiere of a new acoustic version of DOOMED track "slayer." On album it's a moody, minimal alt-pop track, while the acoustic version is rich with lap-steel and has Jesse's vocals taking an extra vulnerable turn. Watch the video below.

Jesse recently spoke to Joel Madden on his "Artist Friendly" podcast, where she discussed coming from a fashion family, loving Mazzy Star and Annie Lennox, managing anxiety, and more. Listen to that below as well.
