Jess Jones began her musical journey in Esperance, NY (population: 345). She then studied classical guitar and voice in another small town: Potsdam, NY. Now in Los Angeles, Jess emulates her small town vibe through acoustic guitar and simple melodies. You can typically find her hiking, busking on the Santa Monica Pier, or playing at Farmer’s markets

The song title was chosen after the French word "Souvenir" meaning to remember. I was on tour with my friend Kimber last August and she wanted to stay in San Francisco so I ventured to Eugene, OR by myself. It was one of the best times I've had in the past few years. Driving solo up the 101 through the Redwoods was unforgettable. I loved the freedom of driving by myself. If I didn't want to stop I didn't have to, if I wanted to roam around an antique store for an hour I could. Souvenir is about wanting to remember the tiny towns you pass by on the road.

"Jess Jones is the very definition of a singer-songwriter, just a voice and her guitar in perfect harmony. "
