“Her voice was paralyzing, the melody wrapped around my heart. The sun was peeking through the green pines as there was a steady sprinkle of rain coming down. Jessie was the rainbow.”

Jessie Ritter is a country singer/songwriter based in Pensacola Florida. She grew up on farms in Southeast Missouri, spent several years in Nashville Tennessee studying and honing her skills at Belmont Univeristy, traveled the world performing nightly on cruise ships, and landed on the Emerald Coast in Northwest Florida. You can now find her singing near the beach several nights a week as well as frequently touring through the midwest, no doubt stopping in her hometown of Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
Jessie’s first full length album, Coffee Every Morning, released Summer 2018, solidifies her place as a true professional in this industry. Totally modern pop/country tracks like “Meet Your Mother” will have you singing along in the car on a sunny day. “Where You Go” and “No Matter What” make you long for that forever kind of love, while the introspective title track “Coffee Every Morning” might have you crying into your morning cup of Joe. Jessie penned every track on the album with one exception— a folksy cover of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” that she has beautifully made her own.
Though only at the beginning of her career, Jessie has spent thousands of hours on stage and written songs that hold their own alongside today’s chart-toppers. An early addiction to country radio will forever inspire her original material. And today her favorite writers and artists—Lori McKenna, Miranda Lambert, Natalie Hemby, Kacey Musgraves, Cam, Kelsea Ballerini—all influence her songwriting. Jessie continues to write original music and tell stories that speak deeply of the human experience and finding a unique path in this beautiful world.
