Reviews for my recent performance at the Adelaide Festival  with Gavin Bryars in Mercy and Grand - the Tom Waits project:

Limelight magazine:
Opening dramatically with dynamic tango A Little Drop of Poison, Jess Walker, ahead of the Bryars-led ensemble chiming in on chorus, owned the stage. With maximum sass she performed a cracking selection of Waits/Brennan; these fabulous lyrical tales well told, and consummately performed. -

BWW classical.com: 

Jess Walker slipped effortlessly between the roles of Mezzo Soprano and Hooker from Minneapolis. It was utterly brilliant.

Realtime Magazine 

In this set, Gavin Bryars  introduced us to the superb mezzo soprano Jess Walker who evocatively rendered the tragedy of life that permeates these songs.

Other news...
