With Jessie G working under the guidance of her idol Gretchen Wilson at Redneck Records, it is no surprise that this latest single packs a punch. Leaning heavily towards rock opposed to her usual country sound, ‘Martyr’ showcases Jessie G’s epic vocal ability as she belts out that chorus. The production is tight and complements the song perfectly with its heavy drums and distorted guitars. I like the heavily EQ’d guitars as the production drops between sections in the song. It is the next single taken from the record that Jessie G has been working on for the past five years and which is set to be released later this year. Jessie said it would draw influence from across genres and this song certainly shows us the feisty, rock edge that can be injected into her music.
