Jesse Jo Stark marvels with a stunning version of ‘Angel From Montgomery’

It’s a shimmering cover in homage to the late country legend John Prine

Jesse Jo Stark has revealed a stunning take on ‘Angel From Montgomery’, a cover of the late John Prine classic

Recorded at the start of the year in LA, it comes with an intimate music video shot at Valentine Recording Studios – which takes on a whole other level of meaning in light of Prine’s recent passing.

Speaking about the cover, Jesse said: “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 honour to sing it and pay homage to him. I think we could all use some angels right now”.

Around its release, Jesse has made a donation on John Prine’s behalf along with 100% of her merch sales to MusiCares – an organisation that provides a safety net to the music community in times of need.

Jesse Jo Stark’s full length feature debut album is set for release in October. Check out ‘Angel From Montgomery’ below,
