Biography

Her most recently released singles include "Red Electric", "Post-it Note", "Shotgun" and "Houdini". With a heartfelt collection of new songs ready to be revealed, Jessica is looking forward to getting back into the studio to record her next EP.

Born and raised in Virginia Beach, VA, Jessica's passion for music began when she wrote her first song at eight years old. After taking piano lessons as a pre-teen and teaching herself guitar in high school, Jessica began to hone her craft as a singer/songwriter. For several years she consistently performed shows and cut her teeth on many stages. Then with much hometown success and experience under her belt, Jessica packed everything she owned into her Chevy van and made the drive to Nashville, TN: the songwriting capital of the world.

Although country music is often highlighted when Nashville comes to mind, Jessica breaks through the mold as an impassioned pop/rock artist with keen writing abilities. Audiences are moved by her compelling lyrics, unique sound and fiery performances. 

Her journey includes three EP releases, college radio airplay, local press reviews, and a long list of shows (both solo and with bands she's put together) at some of Nashville's favorite venues, such as The Basement, Mercy Lounge, Exit/In, 3rd and Lindsley, and Hard Rock Cafe. Jessica has also played shows in many surrounding cities. In addition, she worked on the Nashville TV show for 5 seasons and was featured in the "Music City Memoirs" Documentary.
