Jessica Crawford’s brand new EP entitled Honestly releases today. The EP’s video teaser can be seen below. Listen to some previews on her instagram account below.
Jessica Crawford never dreamed of being a full time musician. After some hard knocks in life, she struggle to accept the call she was feeling toward music ministry for fear of an uncertain future. In 2011 she left the comfort of her small, Virginia hometown for…yep, you guessed it…Nashville, TN. What she thought would be a short term adventure turned into a five year journey of songwriting and ministry development. From serving an inner-city missions base to living on faith for finances, Jessica gained life experiences that formed a deep dependance on God and opened her up to an adventure in music that she now welcomes with open arms.
After recording her “Wildfire” EP in Music City with Daniel Ornellas of Tree63 in 2015, Jessica launched her own ministry to serve churches across the US through music and speaking engagements. Jessica’s willingness to walk through open doors led to an opportunity to lead worship for Fountain of Life Centerin Burlington, NJ where she currently serves as Worship Arts Director while also pursuing her songwriting career with the blessing of her Pastor Russ Hodgins. Jessica wrote and recorded her latest EP “Honestly” with the group Brothers McClurg at Old Bear Studio and is excited for its September 14th release and upcoming tour dates. Pre-order sales have been promising, ranking “Honestly” in the top 5 for the Christian genre and top 50 on all of iTunes. The EP’s first single “Kill & Bury” is now available as an instant gratification track with iTunes pre-order purchase. She will be touring solo this Fall as well as with acts such as Brothers McClurg, Mark Lee of Third Day and Dave Pettigrew.
