Firesight makes good on the critical praise and grass-roots fan support that's already been heaped upon 24-year-old Jessie Baylin. The2008 album offers a vibrant, soulful showcase for her talents as both an uncommonly insightful songwriter and a deeply expressive, effortlessly charismatic vocalist. Recorded in the artist's recently adopted hometown of Nashville with noted producer Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo, Rogue Wave), Firesight features contributions from some of Nashville's most respected rock players, and songwriting collaborations with such notable co-writers as Whiskeytown member Mike Daly and grammy-winning songwriter/performer Jesse Harris, L.A. Troubadour Zack Hexum and the Rembrandts' Danny Wilde.

"i first got acquainted with jessie baylin's music on myspace, before she was signed. i bought both of her cds offered and fell in love with her music. after buying her major label debut, firesight, i can only say that she will endure and continue to blossom. every time that i listen to firesight, which is ALL the time, every song makes me smile, as it is beautifully executed. she has zeroed in on everyone's common desires and fears, hopes and dreams and she does it with the utmost of talent and class. if you have not yet experienced her music, you are definately missing out. she is a wise and heartfelt tunesmith and one hell of a wailer!"
Contemporary, eclectic adult-alt pop

"Although mostly pop-oriented and tailormade for placement in the background of a primetime TV drama, this album also encompasses wisps of jazzy cabarets with a hint of the twang of Baylin's hometown of Nashville. Several singers spring to mind, notably Dusty Springfield, Phoebe Snow and Maria Muldaur along with numerous modern musicmakers -- an eclectic mix, to be sure. Tonally, Baylin's voice shares a familiar, bluesy white-girl rasp with that of Amy Whitehouse, although her music is decidedly much mellower. Spotting similarities with Norah Jones wouldn't be misplaced, either, since one of Baylin's songwriting partners is Jesse Harris, who is also one of Norah's crew. This is a fine record for "mature" music fans looking for something new that doesn't fit into easy modern pop categories. (DJ Joe Sixpack, Slipcue Music Guide)"
Leaving Her Mark!

"Jessie Baylin's soulful album is vibrant and refreshing. With her ability to convey an inner strength through capacious lyrics and captivating vocals it's hard to believe she is only 24 years old. Songs such as "Not a Day More," "See How I Run," "Was I On Your Mind," and "The Glitter" showcase an amazing sense of fortitude. Without a doubt "Leave Your Mark" will leave chills up your spine that is sure to leave Jessie Baylin's charismatic mark on you!"
