Jessica Childress

My dear friend Jessica Childress put on an incredible performance last night at Castoro Cellars, supporting her recently released and obscenely good debut album, Days. Jess is easily one of my favorite people - brilliant, caustically hilarious and a winsome conversationalist. Along with Gavin DeGraw's drummer Mike Baker, also working for Greg on this event, I had the pleasure of taking a break from my line cook duties and joining Jess for a few tunes during her set - it warmed my heart experiencing her artistic growth first hand in front of a stunned crowd of unsuspecting R&B nerds.

Go to her website, listen to her music and be inspired.
