Biography

Jessica Bundy's voice is arresting in its unaffected beauty and rich musicality. The daughter of a concert pianist, Jess has music in her bones. School and extra-curricular choirs nurtured her love of singing, while the gift of a second-hand guitar in her teens jump-started her on the songwriting path. But it wasn't until after the accidental death of Jessica's beloved younger sister that the deep reserve of musical creativity she'd always known was there began to surface. While studying for her Master's at York University Jessica had an epiphany; she felt the irrefutable call to a creative life, one in which music would play a large part. She can now be heard regularly performing her songs to enthralled southern Ontario audiences and playing at local music festivals (The Junction Arts Festival, 2013; In The Soil Arts Festival, 2014; Canadian Music Week, 2014). Jessica has just released her debut EP and is recently home from her first tour in California to promote the album!

Lyrics

Careless Smile

Written By: Jessica Bundy

Verse 1:
Oh won't you let me in,
I'm trying to look on the bright side
When I know that I can't win.
My love's bound and chained,
He asks me for forgiveness
And I ask him for the same.

Chorus 1:
And what kind of fool falls in love
With someone who isn't there;
And what kind of fool breaks her own heart
With a careless smile and windswept hair.

Verse 2:
In the darkness of the night,
Searching for an answer,
Some way to make this right.
Can I take that path on my own,
When I can't see 'round the bend
Do I risk my life alone.

Chorus 2:
And holy, holy is the love I find,
And holy is its end;
No comfort, no piece of mind,
Just the fear of losing a broken friend.

And what kind of fool falls in love
With someone who isn't there;
And what kind of fool breaks her own heart
With a careless smile and windswept hair,
With a careless smile and windswept hair,
With a careless smile and windswept hair.
