OXFORD – 6 On The Square (6OTS) is proud to present Oxford’s own, Jess Prewitt, on Friday at 7:30 p.m. So passionate about his music, Jess confesses he’s a music “addict” and he’ll get you hooked too with his smooth, enveloping vocals backed by his jazz-influenced guitar playing.
Driven since youth, Jess explored music from many angles. It was, however, the collision of meaningful lyrics resonating over the buzzing strings of an acoustic guitar that ignited his passion and revealed to him the raw power of music. He was “addicted for life” and actively pursued music more out of necessity than choice. While in college, Prewitt studied the music industry along with audio production to feed “his habit.” Immediately following graduation he moved to New York City where he knew he could always get his fix performing, listening to and breathing music. It is easy to identify the jazz influence in his guitar arrangements as they lay the foundation over which his voice smoothly and clearly presents his profound lyrics. Realizing the meaningful truths in his writing can bring silence to a room and a tear to the eye as he channels the power of song that earned his passion from the start.
