Seattle artist Jessica Star Rockers is a blue-collar princess with the Midwestern roots to prove it. Her debut album, Beloved On Earth, uses raw guitar chords to back sweetly haunting vocals. Her acoustic folk combines intensely intimate lyrics with stark harmonies.

Biography

Jessica Star Rockers began writing music and poetry as a child growing up in the farmlands of Illinois. Her education and travels eventually led her to the rainy Pacific Northwest and the Puget Sound island she calls home. A mix of these two regions deeply informs her music, combining Midwest roots and folk music with the indie rock sensibilities of Seattle and the Olympic Peninsula.

She’s coming back to music and writing after a short hiatus, when she and her husband, photographer and scientist WD Flitter, gave birth to a beautiful child they affectionately call Mr Nibs.

In 2006 Jessica released her debut album Beloved On Earth (available from CDBaby.com and iTunes.)She is currently co-authoring the blog MFABitch.com, writing songs for her second album, and playing shows throughout the Seattle area.

Lyrics

But I Know You

Written By: Jessica Star Rockers

one mistake and it was gone
all loving deeds you did undone
though I predicted it would come
cause I know you

no one really understands
a disease where we are evil friends
been your shadow in some awful places
so I know you

those misunderstandings
and how loaded your love can be
all the days you gave away
games we like to play
and you don’t know me but I know you

oh sweet self-righteous hurt
no one talks but we hear words
they don’t know the depths of you
you say I’m just like my mom
a dummy a bitch and a slob
but you really don’t know me at all
and I know you

those misunderstandings
and how loaded your love can be
all the days you gave away
games we like to play
and you don’t know me but I know you

those misunderstandings
and how loaded your love can be
all the days you gave away
games we like to play
and you don’t know me but I know you
I know you
I know you
