Jess Baldwin's voice has been described as “world class,” “effortless,” and “pure beauty.” She inhabits diverse musical worlds in the recording studio and on stage, singing pop, soul, funk, jazz, Americana, musical theatre, classical, and more. She appeared on NPR's Mountain Stage in 2013, American Public Television's Songs at the Center in 2017, was a quarterfinalist in the 2015 and 2017 American Traditions Competition, and won Best Cover Song in the 2015 and 2017 Ohio Music Awards.
With a master's in classical voice pedagogy, 7 years of training in CCM (contemporary & commercial music) and functional voice pedagogy, and 25 years of collaborative piano experience, she brings the same flexibility and diversity to her teaching that she brings to her performing. Jess teaches in Marietta and Columbus, is the creator and editor of Commercial Voice Resources (a blog for popular music voice teachers), and teaches contemporary voice techniques at colleges, conferences, workshops. Combine her deep knowledge of voice and music with patience, compassion, and individualized instruction, and you get the perfect marriage of heart and head.
