Jessica Sarah spent much of her childhood in Australia training and competing as a gymnast. It wasn't until she turned sixteen that Jessica picked up her dad's guitar for the first time. After spending a few months learning to play, she began writing songs and fell in love with the idea of creating and singing her own original music. Dreaming was one of the first songs that Jessica self-penned acoustically, before going on to write and record material for her debut EP Wooden Seas.
In early 2013 Jessica was heard rehearsing for an open mic session at the famous Aussie event, The Woodford Folk Festival, by Darren Percival from The Voice. As he walked past, Darren stopped in his tracks and invited Jessica to play with him at the Pineapple Lounge in front of her first packed house.
Jessica recorded the six original songs for Wooden Seas in the first half of 2013. The release received the attention of Australian Broadcasting Corporation ABC station Triple Jand after air play, she was interviewed by announcer Rosie Beaton. Jessica was offered the honour to have her songs placed in the ABC library, available for the use of secondary school students in their film projects. A few months later Jessica was recognised for her talents after entering the national First Break competition and was awarded a place in the top thirty.￼
Performing regularly at local gigs, Jessica is working on her own material as well as collaborating with other artists, to arrange and record new tracks. Jessica's creativity and love for song writing has made her determined to pursue a career in the music industry.
