Jessica Smucker believes that the best way to change the world is to channel our pain into connection. Her songs have a way of reaching deeply into people’s souls and inviting the kind of reflection that feels both reassuring and unsettling. Wrapped in catchy melodies, her lyrics appear simple and relatable on the surface, but each listen will uncover more hidden pockets of nuance. She’s the kind of writer and performer who can lull a noisy room into a hush with a single line.

Based in Lancaster, PA, Jessica was raised in the Mennonite faith tradition by a family full of storytellers, activists, adventurers, and pranksters. She performs solo throughout the U.S. and regionally with her band, The End of Everything, consisting of Mike Bitts and Steve Brown (both of The Innocence Mission), James Lipka (The Ogham Stones, Tractor Jerry), and Carrie Reavy.

Her discography spans from 2008-2022 and includes two EPs and three full-length albums. Between the summers of 2021-2022 she released five more singles, including synth-pop anthems “Dinosaurs,” “Rose of Jericho,” and “Phoenix,”  and piano ballads “Stones to Throw” and “War of Attrition.” She plans to release two more singles and a third EP in 2024.

Jessica has won or placed in several national songwriting contests including SolarFest’s Singer/Songwriter Showcase Competition, the Connecticut Folk Festival Song Competition, and the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest. In her life beyond music, Jessica is a published poet and essayist, a social justice warrior, a freakishly good Scrabble player, and mother to two of the smartest people she’s ever met in real life!

Stereo Glow’s sound is adventurous and dreamy, offering both inspired explosions of joy and moody escapes into shadows through statement-making arrangements.
Vocal and guitar layering surround the listener and transport them through an experience that is textural and unexpected. Often centered around a character or concept, the lyrics are sensual, descriptive, and expansive. Stereo Glow exposes roots of gritty nostalgia to cool air, experimenting with natural air and synthetic sound proportions, mixing them with a signature and liberating energy.
