Album Notes
"Jessie is one of the most intuitive and instinctual artists I have ever worked with. She’s prolific. And her songs are great.” -David Swenson, Makoche Studios

Jessie Veeder has been a symbol of folk music in the badlands of Western North Dakota since she released her first original album, "This Road," when she was only sixteen years old. It was an effort that sparked the interest of music enthusiasts and took her from performing at fairs and festivals around her home state to managing a national college and coffeehouse tour with a booking agency out of Nashville.

Since then Veeder has gone on to have a successful career in the music industry, traveling the country, recording her second original album A Place to Belong with Barking Dog Records in 2005 before bringing it all home to record and release Nothing’s Forever, a 2012 effort that features Jessie’s renowned single Boomtown, an homage to the people working to make a living in oil country and a song that put Veeder in the spotlight as a feature in various news programs and national and international documentaries.

Jessie’s new release, Northern Lights, brought her to Nashville to record with Bill Warner, a producer who has worked with artists such as Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton, Mindy Smith and Trisha Yearwood, among others. Backed by some of the best players in the industry, Jessie's skill as a heart wrenching songwriter soars in the new songs that remain rooted in the stories of the people and landscape of her home in Western North Dakota. The highly anticipated release is some of Jessie's best work yet.

“It was such an amazing experience to bring the songs I wrote in my living room or while working on the ranch to Nashville to see how they might transform in the hands of some of the best studio players around,” said Veeder of her experience in Music City. “And they just got it. They understood where the music needed to go, respected the stories and made these songs come to life in the most beautiful way.”

The 12 track album blends rootsy instruments, poignant lyrics and powerful melodies rooted in Americana, blues, folk and country influences.

“The music on this album is quiet when it needs to break your heart and rocking when it needs to bring you to your feet,” says Veeder. “I really think this project has something for everyone and I can’t wait to start playing the songs live.”

Beyond the music it’s Veeder’s story that has helped win her a global following. Her popular website “Meanwhile, back at the ranch…” chronicles life on the Veeder Ranch and the success of her website has landed her a job as a weekly columnist for state-wide newspapers and as a commentator on Prairie Public Radio.

“I’m so excited about this project,” said Nashville producer Bill Warner. “Not many songwriters come through the studio that are such skilled lyricists. This project has great potential. I’ll forever be a fan of Jessie’s”

Jessie has been a featured artist at the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko Nevada and was a main stage act Red Ants Pants Music Festival in Montana. She is the recent recipient of the North Dakota Ambassador Award and has shared the stage with Dan Seals, Corb Lund, Bobby Vee, Black Hawk, Paulette Carlson, Sammy Kershaw, The Wilkensons, Brenn Hill, Martha Scanlan, Keri Noble, Gwen Sebastian and Kat Perkins among others.
