Jessica hit the stage early. At 10 years of age, she fell in lov
with the “natural high” of live performing, and Bay Area audiences were quic
to fall in love with her. It wasn’t long before Jessica was singing th

“Performing will always be my true passion,” says Jessica, and it’s evident. She achieves a level of audience interaction that many performers can only wish for. Her personality is genuine and high-energy. Her stage presence is a

Since October 2010, Jessica has been taking regular trips to Nashville to co-write with a variety of experienced songwriters. On her first trip, she met he
producer, Steffon Hamulak, who assembled a crack team of big-name countr
sidemen to back Jessica on her first EP, On the Edge. Today, On the Edgehas been heard over the airwaves in the U.S., Canada, Australia
Germany, and the U.K. It features three upbeat songs and a bonus ballad, three of which were penned in part by Jessica.
The opening cut, “Just Can’t Help Myself,” was chosen April 2011 Best Song o
the Month by Songwriter Universe. The same song took May 2011 Best Song of the Month at the Nashville Songwriters Association International (SacramentoChapter). To top it off, in June she represented 101.9 “The Wolf” at the Texaco Country Showdown and again placed first.

rejection—ingredients to success in the music industry. Look out world!
