Soothing, airy vocals with complex, rich harmonies complementing Alternative RnB, Pop, and Hyperpop production. jessa floats on a track with a relatable vulnerability. She writes about love and heartbreak in an accessible and transparent way; if you know her, you’ll know exactly what each song is about. She’s been spending a lot of time this past year collaborating on experimental music and not worrying about expectations of what it means to be a biracial woman making alternative music.
jessa's latest release, "unweave", a laid back Monte Booker type beat (produced by loe4t) complemented by smokey and airy pop/rnb vocals. This release is a fresh start for jessa, the beginning of a phase of music that is true to self and not a product of formula. This track was written, produced, and recorded at home in Queens while quarantining.
jessa was born and raised by two new yorkers who couldn’t have grown up more differently. A jewish woman who grew up affluent on the upper west side and a black man from Harlem with family roots in Conway, South Carolina. jessa has always had constant exposure to these two vastly different worlds, and her sound reflects her intersectional background. jessa doesn't claim any one genre, she finds labels limiting. jessa makes music on her own terms and refuses to play into people's expectations for her.
jessa’s father, John Gore, is a seasoned artist manager. jessa started her journey in music by leaning heavily on her dad’s industry relationships - out of this came access to top producers, writers, engineers, and studios. Over the past year jessa has been exploring music on her own terms. In straying from industry connections and building new relationships with young musicians who are all trying to forge their own paths, jessa has come into her own and developed a more genuine sound. She has spent time refining her lyricism and writing style as well as gotten comfortable doing more experimental projects - working outside of the studio without the express goal of walking out with a hit has been a game changer. jessa values the ability to make music that feels like her, not what people around her think she should sound like. The experiences she’s accumulated over the past year have given her a confidence in herself and her sound which will allow her to continue working with those who have supported her career since 2016, while taking the lead on musical direction and without allowing anyone else to dictate who she is as an artist.
"...having pure, crystal clear talent that needs no covering up or smoothing around any rough angles. The vocals are spot on genuine, with her uniqueness pointing towards smooth ear-candy status. RnB smothered in pop, or the other way around, depending on your personal taste. Either way she’s blurred the lines between the two so her sound is a melting pot of tasty urban flavors. jessa certainly deserves a five star rating. Her voice comes through loud and clear and here tones have an honesty that makes her sound real. Obviously if she keeps her work rate and creative output above the norm it will be hard to imagine that jessa's talents will go unnoticed."
