Biography

Jess Klein (born in 1974 in Rochester, New York) is an American singer-songwriter. After independently releasing her first two albums, winning the Telluride Troubador Songwriting Contest, and garnering several Boston Music Award nominations, she was signed to Rykodisc in 2000. Her first release for Ryko was “Draw Them Near” and her second release was “Strawberry” Lover (2005).

The songs on her 2011 album “Behind A Veil” are a direct result of a personally challenging year; losing her father to a five year battle with ALS, splitting with a lover, and the self-empowering decision to move forward with no management or record label.

Klein explains: “You never really know what the big picture is to a situation - sometimes the meaning is veiled. It can seem really bad, but then later you can look back at the same moment and feel so grateful it went that way; I love that about life. Sometimes things are just really hard and really painful, but also beautiful.”

Klein continues to tour the U.S, U.K. and Europe regularly.
