Jes Raymond writes and sings songs that connect the day to day with the muses of wonder and myth. "The Blackberry Bushes" is the collective centered around those songs and her long time collaboration with fiddler Jakob Breitbach. Together, They fall somewhere between Stevie Nicks, Gillian Welch, and The Infamous Stringdusters. Jes and The Bushes draw from the deep well of American Roots music for a modern sound that has a light-hearted rusticity, elegance, and soul.

The Bushes have that rare magic that allows them to fuse voices from many genres into an acoustic instrumentation that retains distinct threads of sonic color. They have an obvious love of performing, spot on chemistry, and a live show that truly aims to stir the spirit. Backed by a rotating cast of talented believers, they simultaneously honor the genius of tradition and innovation. Elements of jazz, classical, pop, gospel, and bluegrass saturate the sound that is buoyant, bold, and like their thorny namesake, rooted and growing, growing, growing.

Jes and Jakob perform nationwide at festivals, concerts, venues and events as a duo, a trio, or with a full band.

"This Modern acoustic group pairs a love for traditional genius with innovative instincts. The result is a fresh, cohesive catalog of music distinguished by playful twang, artful arrangements, and tight, thick harmonies."- Northwest Music Scene

"The best folk-country warble since Victoria Williams."- The Yakima Herald

"Keeping a long-lived genre fresh." - Pulse Magazine.

Jes Raymond & The Blackberry Bushes played at my wedding reception and did a wonderful job. We wanted to have some structured dancing and they arranged for a caller to be there as well, all while staying within our budget. They are very easy to get in touch with to address any questions or concerns and Jakob was extremely friendly every time I talked to him. And of course I love their music!
