A few words with Jessi Mason

I've recently photographed singer/song-writer Jessi Mason on her show in NYC at Rockwood Music Hall, and took the opportunity to chat with her about a few other things:

One, two, three, four!

Which movie would you love to have written a song for?
Jessi Mason: The original Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory with Gene Wilder. I love that that movie is so full of wonder, but is simultaneously pretty dark. I'd want my song to reflect that whimsical eeriness. 

If you could go back in time, who is the artist/band that you wouldn’t miss a concert?
JM: Joni Mitchell

Favorite thing to do in NYC on a day off? 
JM: Look for good bookstores/coffee!

How would you describe your music in just one word?
JM: Nostalgic.

(encore) Where can we listen to your music online?
