Gales Creek – Fresh off a summer 2017 tour with country star Gretchen Wilson, Jessie G (full name Jessie Goergen), a Brookings, Oregon native will play at the Gales Creek Bar and Grill on Thursday, December 14 at 7 p.m.
Jessie G, 27, is an Oregon native who grew up in Brookings, Oregon, where she says her family background in the local fishing industry has shaped her life, and her songwriting.
After winning a 2013 “battle of the bands” competition, Jessie G had a chance to open for Gretchen Wilson, a Grammy-award winning country artist at Duke’s Country Bar & Grill in Portland. Wilson says that she heard Jessie G from her bus and “knew she was something special.”
Shortly after that, Jessie G moved to Nashville to pursue a career in the country music industry, a move she says was necessary.
“You gotta dive in, go 100%.” Jessie G says. “I’ve been doing this since I was 12.”
Her debut self-titled album, released earlier this year, includes seven songs, and includes her first single “Drop a Line,” which charted on Nashville’s Music Row charts at #54. The album was produced, co-written and has backup vocals by Gretchen Wilson.
Jessie G’s music can be found on most streaming services, itunes, and on her website.
