Jessie Farrell is a songwriter and vocalist with a passion for entertaining audiences with songs that connect with children and grownups alike.
Having established herself as Canada's country music sweetheart -- winning top honours from the Canadian Country Music Association, touring and writing with the biggest acts in country music, and building a loyal and loving fanbase from coast to coast -- Jessie stepped out of the spotlight in 2011 to raise her children. Motherhood would prove to be a powerful muse.
Jessie poured her passion into writing music for her daughter, Eloise and later, her newborn son, Waylon. With an emphasis on melody and rhyme, she wrote about the little things that captivate a curious mind. The songs became Take Me Outside, a collection of sweet and soulful tunes that she produced with Allan Rodgers (John Mann, K-Rec).
Take Me Outside features fiddle by critically acclaimed musician Ben Mink (Feist, k.d. lang, Elton John, Heart), and guitar and back-up vocals by Jesse Tucker (Brett Eldredge, Aaron Pritchett).
Shortly after the album was released, the catchy and whimsical songs were featured in the CBC Kids television series, Scout & The Gumboot Kids. The series became a hit and was renewed for a second season and third season. Jessie's latest batch of family-friendly songs are woven throughout the new episodes and is airing daily in Canada on CBC Kids, on ABC in Australia and in the U.S. on the streaming platform, Curious World. For this newest collection of songs Jessie teamed up again with Allan Rodger and produced the album, Chirp Chirp Happy.
Jessie lives in Saanich, British Columbia with her husband and two children, Eloise Bunny May and Waylon River.
“This is great music, first and foremost — wonderful melodies, fun lyrics, and all delivered in Jessie Farrell’s warm and pellucid vocals. It’s also an educational record, something children and adults will enjoy together as it helps young kids to discover their world through rhyme, vivid imagery, melody and rhythm.”
