"... “Lost Again” sounds like it could and should become the “crossover” hit...Rae’s voice really shines. The chorus: “When I’m with you, I lose myself, when I’m without you I find myself, wanting to be lost again” is elegant in its simplicity and leads into some nice guitar work. This song, along with her ear for melody, is worth the price of admission." - Evan Brown

"MODA Fashion Gazette"

"Jessica Rae, a Chicago native, certainly has that distinguished flair we all love to discover. This very talented singer and songwriter is nowhere near the 'mainstream' tunes we hear day to day...There is certainly a demand for true talent in the music industry today...and emerging artists, such as Jessica Rae, deserve every minute of the spot light." - Daisy De La Cruz
