Jesse Jo Stark releases her latest track, a cover of the John Prine classic “Angel from Montgomery,” a longtime favourite that has taken on even more meaning in these uncertain times.
“I could never have imagined that when I released my version of this song that Mr. Prine would no longer be with us. I’ve been performing this song half my life – no matter where I am in the world, it always makes me feel at home. It’s an honor to sing it and pay homage to him. I think we could all use some angels right now,” says Stark.
In the run up to this release, Jesse Jo has been donating 100% of the proceeds from all of her merch sold to MusiCares, an organization committed to providing a safety net for the music community in times of need. She’s also making a donation in John’s name to the charity. Anyone that feels inclined to do so can go here.
