Combining husky tones with a sexy rawness, this stripped back version perfectly showcases her unquestioned talent. Music has been a huge part of Jessica’s life from an early age. At fourteen she began at The Hackney Empire Theatre as a member of the Artists Development Program and she hasn’t looked back.
Jessica has collaborated with artists including, The Wideboys, Show n Prove, Ddark and co-wrote Rudimental’s track “More than Anything” featuring Emeli Sande. Last year Jessica released her debut EP “Black Flame”, her track “Old Days” was chosen as Homegrown download of the week on BBC Radio 1Xtra.
Jessica has begun work on a new project which aims to integrate dark electronic beats with soulful melodies. We can’t wait to hear it.
