Lone Valkyrie is the name of the debut album by Jessi Adele, as well as the record label she created to give her music a home. On her first record, Jessi, often sparsely accompanied, sings about love and loss, the devil and Loretta Lynn. Jessi’s second album, the Wake, was released in 2014 under her own name. Here, musicians from the songwriter’s adopted hometown of Portland, OR add touches of bowed bass, banjo and piano, telling tales of travelers and misfits. More recently, Jessi has been collaborating with fellow musicians Adam McBride-Smith and Paxton Scott creating Jessi Adele & The Starling Curve. They will be touring California and the Northwest in early spring 2017.
