Growing up in the small town of Yorktown Heights, New York with two musician/songwriter parents, Jessica Lynn was surrounded and engulfed by music from the moment she was born. Raised on everything from Beethoven to the Beatles, she fell in love with some of the great singer/songwriters of our time, crediting Neil Diamond, Barry Manilow, and the Beach Boys as her biggest influences. Jessica thought she had heard it all…and then, she found her first Shania Twain album. Life and music for her would never be the same again.
Driven to write, Jessica began taking piano lessons in elementary school and taught herself the guitar and drums by middle school. She began writing in earnest and exploring various genres of music but following her heart, she kept returning to Popular and Country music. At fourteen years old, she formed her first band and quickly began performing professionally in many of New York City’s top venues.
Jessica and her band became local celebrities and countless news and media pieces pegged her as an act to watch out for. At sixteen years old, she became a published ASCAP writer and the same year was featured in the nationwide PBS concert television special, “Cal…Forever and Beyond,” which featured Jessica performing her ballad “Favorite Stranger.”
Now setting out on her own as a solo performer, Jessica has returned to the music that has been playing within her heart all these years.
“Country music just tells a story like nothing else can. I was always mesmerized by the sassiness, edge, universality, realness, and by how relatable today’s country/pop music is.” Within this style Jessica is able to incorporate her wide range of musical inspirations and showcase an uncanny knack for writing and performing the perfect mix of country, rock, and pop that compliment her personality and grab the attention of a broad spectrum of listeners across the globe.
With the recent filming and recording of her first full length television special and live album, “Jessica Lynn – This Much Fun – Live from the Winery at St. George,” Jessica is ready to share her story with the world and open the pages of her musical diary. With her music she details every up and down, every heartbreak, and every moment of happiness, and will reach in to the hearts’ of audiences everywhere as they listen their way right in to the most intimate moments of this captivating entertainer’s life.
