This special “musical memoir” performance marks Jess’s 40th birthday and a return to the stage with her band, the Understorey, after a 5-year hiatus.  The Understorey is composed of longtime collaborators Josef Deas and Jenny Jones and new members Brennan Andes, Jon Brown and TJ Zindle.  The show will feature a mix of original songs, covers and stories about the “path to renaming and reclaiming” herself, along with special guests.
