Mr. Lou/Stefan's Turning Point Stage

Jessy Tomsko is a singer/songwriter hailing from Philadelphia, currently based in NYC. Known for her catchy yet genuine and confessional style, Jessy is a versatile vocalist, guitarist, pianist, and composer. Though writing and performing primarily in the ever-expanding "folk" genre, she first began experimenting with songwriting whilst attending a conservatory, earning a music degree in classical voice performance. Drawn more and more to the singer songwriter coffeehouse style, her roots in classical music and musical theater provided her with a solid musical foundation and inspired her along the way to finding her own unique voice.

Jessy has independently released several EPs and albums over the years, and is currently in the studio working on her new record "Wild and Good" with producer Michael McCoy (Faith Hill, Maroon Five, Gavin DeGraw). She has shared the stage with an impressive list of notable artists (including several Grammy winners and nominees), such as Joan Osborne, Edwin McCain, Loudon Wainwright, Kim Richey, Peter Bradley Adams, Ari Hest, and Chris Trapper, and she has performed at many of the prominent venues and festivals in the Northeast and down the East coast. Recent performances include Musikfest (Bethlehem, PA), Black Potatoe Music Festival (Clinton, NJ), Highline Ballroom (NYC), Club Passim (Cambridge), Mexicali Live (Teaneck, NJ), Rams Head On Stage (Annapolis), Sellersville Theatre (PA), Pittsburgh Winery, World Cafe Live (Philly), and the Musikfest Cafe.

"Her achingly pure, Appalachian Spring voice shrouds her... tales with a gossamer veil. The simple, laid-back production by Jessy Tomsko and Michael McCoy places Tomsko's voice up front and allows her original folk-like compositions to radiate." - The Working Musician
