Jessica Jolia is an American recording artist, songwriter, musician and educator. Her musical talents, passion and work ethic led her to earn scholarships to Berklee College of Music and Oklahoma Christian University as a student of the Vocal Performance Bachelor of Arts degree program, the latter of which she chose to attend. After performing internationally for many years, Jessica's career as a solo artist became her primary focus. Revisiting the albums of her favorite artists and musicians, the likes of Stevie Wonder, Prince, Chaka Khan, Minnie Riperton, Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk, she quickly developed a sound that was truly her own. Her debut single "Sometimes" was independently released and featured in the 2015 film Sister Code starring Amber Rose, Eva Marcille and Drew Sidora, and later featured on Spotify's Top Tracks of 2016 playlist. Jessica has since performed on The Ellen Show and The Late Late Show, and has been featured in The Source, This Is RnB, The A&R Report, Rolling Soul Brazil and many other publications around the world.
On July 31st, 2017, Jessica's leading single "Want You" from her forthcoming album "Hearts & Daggers" will be released worldwide. The edgy, bass-heavy track features smooth and sultry vocals amidst a complicated yet familiar storyline. The single's production credits include Big Mike Hart, Buddy Bangs and Chris "Showtime" Beck of Rhythm Section Entertainment.
Jessica has had the pleasure of recording, performing and touring with many award-winning artists including Dr. Dre, Rita Ora, Meghan Trainor, Lyle Lovett, The Chainsmokers, Goapele, Eric Benet, Faith Evans, Earth Wind & Fire, Jeffrey Osborne, Karyn White, Chico DeBarge, Alexander O'Neal, Smokey Robinson, Kenny Lattimore, Johnny Gill, New Edition and Kelly Price. Her music is a reflection of her personal and professional experiences and travels, unified by an underlying theme of growth, vulnerability, mystique, strength and love.
