Bethan is the creative offspring of Dallas, TX native, Jessi James.
Although Jessi has been playing in various bands and projects around the Dallas music scene for quite some time, it was her visit to SXSW in 2010 that put her on producer, Roger Greenawalt's radar (Ben Kweller, The Pierces). The two began collaborating and recording (at Shabby Road Studios in Brooklyn, NY) new music that would later became Chapter 1. The result was a 7 track minimalistic, melodrama with Jessi's vocals front and center.
After recording in New York, Jessi returned to Texas to assemble a 5 piece band which has since opened for bands like Purity Ring, Eisley, Juliana Barwick, ANR and Daniel Hart.
