Jessy J

The Oregon-born, California-raised performer draws her inspiration naturally from several unique musical wellsprings. While she was growing up, her Mexican-born father and mother, a native of Texas, had parties at their house where festive, live Latin music—including La Banda music of her dad's home country—flowed all night long. She was a huge fan of Cannonball Adderley and John Coltrane, but also loved pop. After graduating from USC with a degree in jazz studies—she was named Most Outstanding Jazz Student of her class—she jumped quickly into recording sessions with artists like Michael Bublé and toured with The Temptations (2005-6) and Jessica Simpson.

A true musical prodigy, Jessy began playing piano at age four and spent most of her childhood as a competitive artist, performing at major conferences, competitions and festivals. These childhood experiences and the discipline and work ethic she gained from them would prove to be a great testing ground for her future career in the industry.
