Jessie is a very sun-shy Perth red-headed jazz singer who enjoys swing music, dancing in her kitchen to Otis Redding, eating cheese at any given opportunity and singing in the shower and every other (shaded) venue. Her main musical passion is jazz, blues and roots music.
Jessie started singing professionally at the age of 15 and has fronted big bands, jazz duos and every sized band in-between. She has toured Australia and South East Asia with her band The Darling Buds of May and also with Adam Hall and The Velvet Playboys. Jessie has also toured through Europe, performing cabaret at the London Wonderground Festival, swing in Madrid’s Swingtońal, blues at Osnabrück’s BlueNote and jump blues at Berlin’s Street Festival Bergmannstrassenfest, amongst other gigs in Germany, France, Spain and Poland.
Along with her passion for singing vintage music, Jessie has cultivated a love of producing shows, and has been a regular presenter for the past five years at Perth’s Fringe World Festival. She produced the Award Nominated Swing Revue for 4 years, along with Dirty Jazz Vintage Cabaret, Dirty Blues: The Sinning Edition (Winner of the Music and Musicals Award 2016) and So Fresh: The Fairly Average Dance Party (Winner of the Music and Musicals Award 2017). In all, Jessie has been nominated for 16 Fringe Awards and has won 8 Music and Cabaret Awards at Fringe World.
Jessie has four CDs to her name, two with The Darling Buds of May, one solo album, and one recently recorded while in Germany with her Berlin blues band: Ginger Blues. She is currently recording with gypsy jazz outfit Sassafras and is also in the process of recording her original music in 2017.
