“Those unexpected moments are always the performance highlights of any awards show and this year's CEA lineup and production provided loads of highlights...The same can be said for singer Jess Lamb, the soulful vocalist who wowed the crowd with a few hypnotic songs, joined by her guitarist and bassist (who doubled on throbbing kick-drum). The sparse set-up belied the soaring sounds conjured, guided by Lamb's remarkable voice. Lamb was nominated for a CEA in the R&B/Funk/Soul category, a testament to her unique sound, which comes closer to resembling Florence and the Machine than, say, Usher. We may need to create an "Alternative/Soul/Rock" category to accommodate Lamb next year.”

“Cincinnati Entertainment Awards' Lineup Announced Potentially making new, lasting memories at this year’s CEA show will be...soulful vocalist Jess Lamb...”

“Jess Lamb: Nominated for Cincinnati Entertainment Award (CEA) in the "R&B/Soul/Funk" category The 16th annual CEA ceremony will be held at Covington’s Madison Theater on Jan. 27, featuring more live performances than ever..”

“Staggeringly unique modern folk band with a rock & roll soul. This “3 1/2 piece” band features Jess’s haunting vocals that flat out mesmerize & hypnotize listeners. Brother Kenny’s impressive guitar work ranges from silky & subtle to savage & searing. Kasey’s magnificent bass / kick drum combo is not only singular in style, it’s pure musical genius.”

“Jess and Kenny encountered their share of struggles growing up, though. It was their music, and each other, that got them through. “The heartbeat of our work is that we originally started doing our own music to get through what we were going through, what was going on in our home life and in relationships,” Jess said. “We were so close to each other and we had the music, and that really pulled us through.””
