Jessie Murph

BBC Radio 1 StageSunday4:35 pm

Jessie Murph etches raw emotion into strikingly sincere songs laced with country-style storytelling, hip hop-infused production, alternative experimentation, and unassuming pop appeal. Holding nothing back, she’s so honest about issues such as mental health, depression, and addiction that she practically leaves blood and tears on the recordings. The 18-year-old Alabama vocalist and song writer has quietly emerged as a phenomenon on her own terms. As the story goes, she channelled the pain of dysfunction at home, school bullying, and an archaic climate of misogyny into music as a teen. She took the reins and built an audience on social media in 2020 which has grown ever since.
