As the daughter of musicians who got their start in the Twin Cities folk scene of the 60’s, Jessa Roquet flourished in a family culture of tight harmonies, storytelling, and guitars. Since the days of being hauled from gig to gig in the family station wagon, she has built a musical treasure chest of her own. The Gambler’s Daughter debut EP highlights the breadth of her musical poetry, painting stories from the interpersonal to the ethereal. The songs blend Roquet's elegant lyricism with her rich heritage in folk music, heartfelt rock, and a touch of soulful blues.
