NEWS: Jessie Reid releases single ‘Your Story’

Fresh from opening for Loudon Wainwright III at three sold-out London shows, folk guitarist Jessie Reid releases new single ‘Your Story’.

The track is described as an “intimate indie-folk celebration of communication and the human spirit.” Reid draws on the Celtic roots of her Scottish and Welsh grandparents as the track is augmented by the emotive strings of Scottish fiddler Essa Flett.

The single was inspired by the heartfelt conversations of strangers on late night trains, with Reid experiencing this “deeply personal” interaction. She said: “One night on the train I met a middle-aged woman who had recently lost her husband. She told her story to me and two others ramped around a table and, despite her pain, made us all laugh, listened to everyone intently and offered words of wisdom. There was something so beautiful about her strength, how she felt able to share her story with strangers, despite all she’d been through.”

Reid will be performing at Glastonbury 2024 on the Acoustic Stage, as well as two upcoming shows. The guitarist is also crowdfunding to independently record her full length debut album.

‘Your Story’ will be released on 26th April. Listen here.

Upcoming shows:

  • 9 May – Zed Alley, Bristol
  • 24 May – Albert & Co, Shrewsbury
