Jessy Greene, a multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter, started playing violin as a four-year old prodigy from Sheffield, Massachusetts who spent her formative years studying as a classical Suzuki violinist.
Incorporating years of violin training and a degree in ethnomusicology, Greene's dark string arrangements and melancholy vocals generate a unique blend of organic sonic elements.
Jessy's most recent solo record, A Demon and Her Lovers, chronicles her journey around the world as a woman whose life was saved by music. As a teenage runaway bound for L.A., Greene left her small hometown and was accepted into UCLA on the merit of her audition.
Since then, having lived on both coasts, as well as the Midwest, she's toured internationally as a musician, collaborating with world-class talent. In addition to her solo albums, Jessy has played violin with an array of diverse artists such as Wilco, Atmosphere, Soul Asylum, Dessa of Doomtree, The Jayhawks, P.O.S, and Romantica. Greene is currently performing with the Foo Fighters as their touring violin and cello player.
