A lil' Q & A ~ Jessie Baylin

When you first hear Jessie Baylin sing, it's only a matter of moments before you realize she's intimately familiar with pop's history, yet not at all interested in repeating it. The Triple Door asked the beyond talented artist a few questions to get an insight as to what is behind the music.

The Triple Door: Name one song that's on your itunes' "25 Most Played" playlist?
Jessie Baylin: Cocteau Twins "Pearly Dewdrops' Drop"

TD: Name your biggest guilty pleasure, musically?
JB: Sister Act Soundtracks 1 & 2

TD: When you're not playing music, what are you doing?
JB: Honing my cooking skills

TD: What was the first song you ever played/sang?
JB: "Crazy" by Patsy Cline at my 1st Grade Talent Show

TD: What was the best concert you ever attended?
JB: Radiohead at Rock Werchter in Belgium

TD: If you could perform in any city in the world, where would you play?
JB: Paris

TD: What's your most embarrassing on stage experience?
JB: My 22nd birthday playing in Los Angeles. I was terribly drunk and was cut off while still on stage.

TD: What inspires you to play music?
JB: I get a rush out of sharing the creative parts of myself with the listener. I love the intimacy of it..

TD: What hidden talents do you have?
JB: Cooking and ping-pong hustler

See Jessie Baylin, part-time musician and part-time ping-pong hustler, with The Watson Twins on January 25th, at 7:30pm, on the Mainstage. More information and tickets here>>
