FIRST REVIEWS OF THE SINGLE!
by Reggie Edwards
Jessica Prouty Band are set to release their latest single, “Set Me Free,” a song that will most likely hit home for many people and that will be an instant fan favorite.
Set for a March 25 release and featuring a gritty, hard-hitting guitar sound and a blistering vocal performance from Prouty herself, “Set Me Free,” is a single that will garner much radio airplay.
Whether it’s the day-to-day grind, the trials that life brings us or simply depression, “Set Me Free” is the anthem for anyone dealing with those troubles and others as well. Talking about wanting to be free from the pain that’s inside, this is a song that fires on all levels- lyrically, musically and emotionally.
If the full-length album is anything like the single, we’re in for a great listen from Jessica Prouty Band.
The Jessica Prouty Band may be on the younger end of the spectrum but that's no reason not to take them seriously. Prouty herself is setting a fantastic example for other local females who wish to take up music. The magnificent band only adds to her power. Having a single that's sure to go all the way to the top of the local charts doesn't hurt them either. --By Melissa Campbell
Next up was the Jessica Prouty Band performing her song “Set Me Free.” Prouty’s keyboardist, Andy Covino, and lead guitarists, Aaron Shuman and Cody Nilsen, played out wild phrases to intro the anthem-like song. Prouty then displayed her arena size vocal over a wedge of compelling, gripping, driving music. Prouty is studying at Berklee College Of Music, and she is still young enough to get signed to a modern rock record label. The right person at the right time will surely notice her stage presence, songwriting, and that voice made for stadiums. -- By Bill Copeland

A few words about their performance. Cat from the Cheap Seats had this to say the next night on her radio show:
You are listening to the Cheap Seats on Cool 102 with the Jessica Prouty Band, Set Me Free, that is actually a brand spanking new song from the JPB. Had the pleasure of seeing them perform last night at the NE Music Awards and everybody at the table was going "Wow."
They're teenagers. They are young talented individuals, and I've had the pleasure of seeing Jessica perform a few times now. And it's one thing to own the stage when you get up on stage to perform, it is another thing to own the stage, the audience and every molecule of oxygen in a venue once you start performing, and Jessica commands that when she gets onstage. She is one of the best performers and to think that she is still in her teens is mind-boggling to me.
So if you would like some of that, you know, heart-pumping, chest thumping music, I highly recommend that you look up the Jessica Prouty Band online. Set Me Free is also available on their website as well.
