Jessie Wagner has released a music video for her recent single, a cover of the early 1960’s classic “Cry To Me” by Soul singer Solomon Burke. The track/video is part of the lead up to the release of her sophomore solo LP on Wicked Cool Records in late 2023/early 2024.
Jessie Wagner says:
Are you sad that summer is about to end? Well, come on and Cry To Me! Check out my homage to ‘Dirty Dancing’ and let’s keep this summer jam pumping!
Ever since I saw Patrick Swayze gently sway Jennifer Grey in his beautifully sculpted arms to Solomon Burke’s “Cry To Me,” I was immediately obsessed with this sensual song. It continues to be one of my favorites, and I am ecstatic to release my take on this sexy classic.
The touring vocalist has shared stages with the likes of Lenny Kravitz, Chic, Duran Duran, and Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul, and is the frontwoman for NYC Rock/Soul band Army of the Underdog. She released her debut solo album Shoes Droppin’ in 2020.
