Jessica Risker / Deadbeat
Experimental all-around tastemaker JESSICA RISKER takes it solo on her next move. The driving force behind electro-psych band DEADBEAT, JESSICA tones it down with her blend of lo-fi folk. This time around we celebrate the release of her new record, I See You Among The Stars, off Austin-based label Western Vinyl. We’re stoked to catch a more intimate and focused set with this powerhouse of a vocalist as JESSICA is known for bringing experimental music to extreme heights with stunning visual elements to boot.
