Originally from London, songwriter Essie Jain left her home town for New York a few years ago in pursuit of her muse. Having performed traditional Irish music and studied opera and classical cello back home, Essie cleaned her aesthetic slate and has started writing austere, intense, lovely songs in a personal style. Her understated approach is perfect for the radio. Joined by guitarist Patrick Glynn and drummer Jim White, Essie plays piano, guitar and sings her songs in the WNYC Studio, and talks about them with host David Garland.
