About this event

Follow the music up the stairs to a beautiful Art Deco room, lit by candlelight, hidden in the heart of the city. You’ll find Jessie and Mark in the middle of the room, no stage, no production, just their music, their voices, their stories.

Mark and Jessie have been friends for over 20 years and it shows. The duo is a joy to watch on stage, their love for each other is palpable. Songs From the Hill presents an intimate exploration of the adventures they have shared, the joys of love found, the sorrow of loved ones lost. Jessie’s original work is a combination of soulful blues, harmonic gospel, and joyful swinging country. Mark loves jazz and blues, and also brings a folk and pop sensitivity to his songwriting. Together they write songs of jubilation, heartache, adventure, and celebration. 

Presented by:
Jessie Gordon

Jessie is a very sun-shy Perth red-headed singer and songwriter who brings her love of old world roots music into the 21st Century. She has toured Australia, America, South East Asia, Germany, France, Spain, Poland and the UK. She is also a 20 time Fringe World Music and Cabaret Award winner. Her original music is a combination of soulful blues, harmonic gospel and joyful swinging country.

She has also recorded nine albums, including two with Mark Turner (Best Friends 2019 and Live at Kidogo 2021), an original album (A Work of Friction 2018), two intercontinental albums entitled Berlin Nights (2017) and Unknowable Journey (2020) with Berlin band Ginger Blues, the latter of which won the German Blues Award for 2020, and most recently the eponymous Sassafras (2021).
