West Hollywood, CA
Born and raised in New York City, JES realized at an early age that singing was her passion. She spent years perfecting her truly unique vocal style, working in various studios and professional situations. While working in a Los Angeles studio, JES met Mike Olson and the two formed Guardians of Earth. The group gained attention on the very popular MP3.com with songs like "Starchildren" and "One Moon Circling". "Starchildren,' would go on to be included on Paul Van Dyks, the Politics of Dancing series. Through the success of that cd, JES began collaborating with more DJ's like D:fuse and Deepsky, producing tracks like "Living The Dream" and "Talk Like A Stranger" along with many others. Ultimately, this lead to the collaboration with Gabriel & Dresden to form Motorcycle, producing the Billboard #1 Dance Hit "As The Rush Comes"
It wasn't long before she caught the attention of the superstar global DJ and producer Tiesto. JES's songs have been included on Tiesto's In Search Of Sunrise, 4, 5, and 6 albums. JES also penned the hit "Everything" with Tiesto for the Grammy nominated Elements Of Life album. Since signing with Tiesto's label, Black Hole Recordings, JES completed her debut solo album. In 2007, Disconnect was released and can be described as an epic trance journey, incorporating elements of rock, and showcasing her utterly unique style of rocktroninca. The first single "Ghost" hit radio worldwide, and has been licensed to over twenty popular Dance compilations. Watch for the current single "Heaven", along with its music video shot entirely in NYC
To promote her solo release, JES joined Tiesto, performing her Disconnect album live for Arena crowds on the massive 2007 Elements of Life World Tour. She was also named 2007 Diva of the year by the readers of the popular dance website, www.divadivodance.com
Next up for JES is the release of Into The Dawn, the hits disconnected, a flip side to her debut album. Packed with chill-out remixes from Disconnect and a few entirely new tracks, this album is sure to catch the attention of an even broader audience for this rocktronica diva.
