Jack Daley (Joss Stone), Frank Ferrer (Guns N' Roses) and Rob Bailey (Anastacia)
Join High Octane Vocalist on 2009 Release

NEW YORK, January 20, 2010 - “I’m not a simple girl/Look inside my world” Jessie Galante directs on the title cut of her 2009 full-length album release, "Spitfire." All those who want their rock from an unforgettable front woman, shot through with soulful blues and served up by with inspired, no-apologies passion are advised: Go ahead and take that look.

"Spitfire" (Independent) represents a major advance for Galante, with globe-spanning production connecting New York, LA and Budapest, where she stays close to her rabid European fan base. "Spitfire," the song and the album, are about singing, saying and expressing exactly what’s on my mind – about freedom, really,” says Galante. “That word melds me together as an artist and a person. I’ve learned the hard way that if your desires rule, and your persistent, you’ll get to do what’s right in your mind, body, heart and soul.”

Galante’s fourth studio album, hears her singing at the top of her game, deftly folding together the fierce beauty, charged strength, and graceful drama that only she can deliver. Backing her on several cuts such as “Spitfire,” the tough churning “High Road Easy," and the tense puller “I Crave It,” is an all-star backing band that includes bassist Jack Daley (Joss Stone, Lenny Kravitz), drummer Frank Ferrer (Guns N' Roses, Psychedelic Furs) and guitarist Rob Bailey (Anastacia, Jive Jones). Hungarian luminary guitarist Janos Szucs with bassist Tibor Ferenczi and guitarist Peter Raso are also on board.

Double-platinum Executive Producer Larry Swist helmed production, and 8-time Grammy-winning mixer Mick Guzauski (Eric Clapton, Michael Jackson, Kiss, Madonna) performed the mix. “Creating this record was all about adrenaline, energy, and having fun,” Galante notes. “It was probably the best time I ever had working on a record. It was this amazing team that made it possible.”

The Buffalo, NY-bred singer is drawing constant inspiration from the huge fan base that she’s assembled in Europe “My audience in Europe is incredibly enthusiastic. We’ve made a heart-to-heart connection, and that love has been a strong force in shaping "Spitfire.”

No matter where they are, people should have no problem making their own connection with Jessie Galante’s "Spitfire,", an album whose singer has to be heard at all costs. “Some people crave chocolate – I need to sing,” she says. “The physical energy of singing is an extreme act for me. In fact, it’s a fix.” – David Weiss
