Jessica Staveley-Taylor

Jessica Staveley-Taylor is singer and guitarist in The Staves, the band she formed with her sisters, Emily and Camilla, in 2009.

They signed to Atlantic Records not long after, and released their debut album, Dead & Born & Grown in 2012. The follow-up, If I Was, came out in 2015, followed by a collaboration with yMusic in 2017.

Jess's dad taught her to play guitar when she was in her mid teens and, within a few years, she knew she wanted to pursue a career in music. A few weeks ago, she came to my house with her beautiful Martin HD-28 to share a pot of coffee and tell me all about her guitars, playing and where The Staves are up to with album No 3. Enjoy.
