Gambler's Daughter is the persona and band of Jessa Roquet, an alt-folk-rock songstress whose inspired writing and nimble voice can create soundscapes that range from dark and heavy to lighter-than-air. Jessa has said that her songs start as poems, and that is clear in her music - through her deft use of dynamics and instrumentation, she illustrates the stories she tells through her lyrics. The Gambler’s Daughter EP highlights the breadth of her musical poetry, painting stories from the interpersonal to the ethereal. The songs blend Jessa's elegant lyricism with her rich heritage in folk music, heartfelt rock, and a touch of soulful blues.
"Roquet's music is full of cut-and-thrust beauty. . . her alluring, full-throated aesthetic could catch even the most cynical listener off-guard."
