"Boomtown" is All About the People, says Singer-Songwriter Jessie Veeder

Posted: Updated:

 

  Her songs tell of the human experience grounded in rural North Dakota.  Maybe that's why there's a mix of young and old, and everyone in between, as Jessie Veeder sings to a packed house in Mandan.

"I felt like it was my duty as an artist, as a singer and a writer, to sing about it, to talk about what it means for our small community to see all this change and growth.  So I sat down and wrote 'Boomtown.'  It just kind of came out of me.  It wasn't about the long lines at the Post Office or truck traffic, or the roads and things like that.  It was about the people that I saw in my everyday life that were coming to this area or coming back to this area," says Jessie Veeder, North Dakota Singer/Songwriter.

Jessie says that if nothing further develops with her music, she feels as though the listeners she's touched already have made it all worthwhile.
