Laying out one's soul in song is the best way to define this inspiring track by Los Angeles based musician Jess Jones. "Roll The Dice" is essentially a story with music, an autobiographical piece describing Jess Jones and her decision to move to LA from upstate New York. Released on August 17th 2018 the track can be streamed on all major platforms.
The music is upbeat and inspiring, while the lyrics are more personal and profound. With this balance "Roll The Dice" becomes quite a catchy tune starting off with acoustic guitar and adding bass, organ and drums in an easy to follow progression, and the song rapidly turns into a catchy folk tinged tune . The concept of taking oneself out of your comfort zone and exploring new chances is, in this day in the US, a popular topic of discussion, and Jess Jones manages to sing about her experience in a beautiful way.
" her singing demonstrates the canny moves of a much more veteran performer than someone in the first few years of their professional career."
"Jess Jones is the very definition of a singer-songwriter, just a voice and her guitar in perfect harmony. "
