Originally from Covington, Kentucky, Jesse Thomas packed up and headed west to Los Angeles in 2008. She had little more than her car and a dream…

To become an actress.

Fast-forward to 2012, and Jesse is gearing up for the Valentine’s Day release of her debut full-length album on Red Parade Music, ‘War Dancer’. She has been featured in the “New and Noteworthy” section, as well as the “Indie Spotlight” on iTunes. “You I Want”, off of her Hazel EP, was featured by Starbuck’s as their “Pick of the Week”, both nationally as well as in Canada. She had another song used on Teen Nick’s “Degrassi”, and recently opened for John Mayer (and as a result, made a video about having his baby).

For lawyers and doctors and those that have to deal with the potential repercussions brought forth by fans of the hard-partying, drug-using genre, Holy Ship! is probably not a good idea.  But for electronic music fans, this might be the coolest idea ever.

The lineup and info for the inaugural voyage of Holy Ship! were announced last week, and the festival is shaping up to be one of the most unique concepts in the live music and entertainment world.  Organized by Hard, Cloud 9 Adventures and The Bowery, Holy Ship! is an electronic music festival that will be held on a cruise ship during January of 2012.  From the 6th through the 9th of that month, the ship will voyage from Ft. Lauderdale, FL to Port Lucaya, Bahamas before its final stop at a Private Island.
