Austin-based singer-songwriter Jess Williamson is arguably this year’s biggest buzz act in the singer-songwriter or indie-folk realm. Williamson’s hauntingly warm vocal stylings and poetic lyrics have won over critics and tastemakers alike. Her most recent accolade was winning the “Best Solo Artist” award at the newly minted Austin Music Blogger Awards (AMBAs) in February. Her debut full-length album, Native State, was released on Jan. 28 via Brutal Honest.
During South By Southwest (SXSW), Williamson will perform every day for both official showcases and unofficial day showcases. See her full schedule below along with her latest music video for her single “Spin The Wheel” off of Native State.
