Singing since she could talk, Jessica also began playing the piano at the age of eight. She surrounded herself with music and listened to a range of styles. Stevie Wonder, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, and Billy Joel were important influences growing up and continue to be along with more recent artists such as The Counting Crows, Fiona Apple, Sarah Bareilles and The Fray.
She attended college at the University of Miami for Vocal Jazz. There, she was able to expand her musical talents and hone her songwriting ability.
Jessica's voice has been compared to Sarah Mclachlan, Norah Jones, and Fiona Apple. With a mix of Pop, R & B, and Rock, her real lyrics and unique sound set her apart from other artists.
Her songs are defined by infectious melodies and stunning vocals, perfectly supported by organic, yet refreshingly original arrangements. Her lyrics are honest, at times playful and at times heart-wrenching, so it is not surprising that they are mostly inspired by personal experiences and the stories of those close to Jessica. Itís music you believe, are effected by, find yourself singing constantly and that youíll want to listen to over and over.
Jessica's music is not only pop at its bestÖ.itís good music at its best.
Great job on your song. I find your voice perfect for your lyrics. I think this is a spectacular arrangement. The best to you!
