All Voices Welcome.
In Jess' studio, each singer's unique sound and identity is acknowledged, honored, and celebrated at every level of ability and experience, whether you’re a total beginner or a seasoned professional. She's your personal trainer and coach, ready to create custom workouts for your voice and to help you break through any mental blocks to your progress and self-expression. Jess specializes in working with singers in popular and commercial genres like rock, pop, R&B, indie, etc., and is trained to work with people who have vocal health issues, including pathologies and injuries. Combine her deep knowledge of voice and music with patience, compassion, and individualized instruction, and you get the perfect marriage of heart and head.
Since getting her master’s in classical vocal performance and pedagogy, Jess has spent every year studying how the voice works in contemporary, commercial, and popular music styles. She’s an assistant faculty member of the CCM Vocal Pedagogy Institute at Shenandoah University, is the creator and editor of Commercial Voice Resources for teachers, and teaches contemporary voice techniques at colleges, churches, theaters, conferences, and workshops.
As a performer, Jess has worked in many different genres, including classical, jazz, Americana, blues, funk, fusion, pop, and rock. After years of wandering, she felt the pull to write and create her own style, finally settling into an artistic identity that lives somewhere between soul, R&B, and quirky indie pop. She looks forward to releasing her first album this year. Until then, you can check out her singles and videos here.
