Stitched with a Kiss
Breather is Jessica Cook, Alicia Skala, Scott Gockerman. Says Chicago rock authority James VanOsdol, 'At times reminiscent of Sinead O'Connor, Lush, My Bloody Valentine, and Cocteau Twins, this band boasts mammoth potential with dreamy vocals and smart songwriting... It's clear that breather is a band to watch. Singer Jessica Cook has the kind of voice you can get lost in. When she sings, it's an arresting moment that is both tragic and eye-opening.' The Illinois Entertainer also lauds the vocal work, saying 'Jessica Cook's sensual vocals, which are in the same tradition as a Sara McLachlan or Delores O'Riordan, carry the songs to a higher level than most established groups could ever dream of.'
