Jessie Goldsmith is riveting on “Rockstar”

Jessie Goldsmith is a globe-hopping Swiss artist with ties to both LA and Nashville. “Rockstar” is one of the highlights of her new EP Midnight Muse. Goldsmith reminds me a lot of Miley Cyrus because her songs are moody, melodic and beautifully sung.

“Rockstar” could easily be a radio hit on either the pop or country charts because it has a Lainey Wilson-esque appeal. The same goes for “Best Part”, a song with an intriguing LA storyline.

Commenting on the EP’s title, Jessie says, “The middle of the night is where I get the most creative. It’s the time where I reflect and I’m able to wind down. No phone calls, no texts, no social media. It’s only me and my thoughts. It’s the time where I meet my muse.”

Even though she writes songs at 3 a.m., this is not a “bedroom pop” EP but one that feels destined for radio airplay thanks to Goldsmith’s alluring alto voice.
