A planned break after the 2019 UK tour ended up significantly extended for International band Jess and the Bandits. With Jess based in Texas and the Bandits in the UK, the pandemic restrictions were felt even more acutely for this fun loving, crowd pleasing band who thrive on live performance and tour life.
Frontwoman Jessica Clemmons formed her Bandits in 2012. With her big voice and warm personality, the Texas native felt an instant connection with the four Brits who made up her band and shared her love for authentic country music. Though over the years members have come and gone as they carve out their own musical journeys, Jess and the band have forged her own brand of UK country, releasing music to critical acclaim, touring extensively and growing a dedicated fan base along the way.
Jess’s’ family grew from 3 to 4 in 2021 with the birth of her second son and she is looking forward to introducing both of her baby Bandits to the UK and the world of a touring artist! Jess has been delighted to spend time working on new music over the last couple of years and is excited to announce a brand-new Jess & the Bandits album set for release in 2022. She will be over in the UK in May for an exclusive collection of live shows.
Announced as the headline artist for Pitlochry festival (20th May) and supported by Nashville Sounds in the Round in Birmingham(10th May), UK Country Live, promoters of dates in Glasgow (21st May) & Manchester (24th May) and Nashville Meets London (25th May), Jess will be delighting fans UK-wide.
With new music set to be released imminently, this exclusive run of shows is the perfect opportunity to catch Jess & The Bandits as they perform brand new material, alongside some old favourites.
