Raised in Kentucky with side trips to Denmark and Montana, this one-woman band of gypsies landed in Cincinnati where she established herself as a potent force in the local kinda-country scene. Based out of Covington, Ky., she now travels across the Midwest and beyond, touring to let the world know about the world of wonky tonk and saying, “My ultimate goal is to ‘wonk up’ the world.” Once part of a singing duo (where she earned her interesting stage moniker of Jasmine Poole) with her trusty traveling companions Darla the Tele and Frederick the Amp, Jasmine sings folksy, cowgirl, countrified and rocking original songs, gaining her comparisons to Loretta Lynn, Lydia Loveless, Wanda Jackson and Lucinda Williams. Her Facebook page describes the music as “Folk Rock Wonky Bluegrass Crazy Country,” and that’s about what you get to hear on her couple of CDs and live shows. Check out her sounds and videos on Bandcamp for a preview of this provocative and innovative artist of note.
