Singer/songwriter Jessie Baylin is a pretty impressive and accomplished artist in her own right, but her recent collaboration with Dave Stewart really resulted in something special. Jessie's duet with the Eurythmics guitarist called, "God Only Knows You Now" is from Dave's upcoming album, and has a very sentimental feel. Both musicians appear in the truly stylized video for the track, which exudes a somber tone amplified by the pair’s resonating vocals.
Jessie is originally from a small town in New Jersey, and she pursued music at a high school for the arts. She actually met Scarlett Johansson at the institution leading the actress to eventually direct the rising starâ��s video for â��Hurry Hurry.â�� Jessieâ��s next stop after graduation was Los Angeles, where she regularly performed at several local venues. She first released an album through iTunes, but in 2008 she followed it up with Firesight on the Verve Forecast label. After breaking ties with her label over some artistic differences, the enterprising performer invested in her own outlet known as Blonde Rat Records. Jessieâ��s most recent offering, Little Spark, is a packaged throwback of sorts, calling to mind Burt Bacharach, Dionne Warwick, and the Brill Building writers. In addition to producing records, Jessie also hit the festival and club circuit where she met her husband, Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill. The musically-inclined couple are now based in Nashville, and are expecting a baby this December.
