“I believe we are a product of our environment,” confides the stunning multi-talented instrumentalist, singer and composer, Jessy J, who took the contemporary jazz world by storm in 2008 with a #1 Billboard hit for eight consecutive weeks. “My exposure to world music plays a central role in how I create music and utilize it as an international language without boundaries,” adds the dynamic young artist who claims classical music as her first love but confesses to listening to everyone from Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan and Sergio Mendes to Snarky Puppy, Bruno Mars and Ed Sheeran. In a genre dominated by men nearly twice her age, Jessy J has carved out a niche for herself by remaining true to her own unique vision and sound. The independent spirit and consummate artist has worked on such hit TV shows as American Idol and The Voice and toured and or recorded with such diverse stars as Aerosmith, Michael Bublé, Jessica Simpson, Michael Bolton, Joe Sample and The Temptations. May 26, 2015, Shanachie Entertainment will release Jessy J’s fifth and new recording My One And Only One, a stellar collection of mostly originals inspired by her recent travels. “I am really excited for people to hear the music because it is so close to my heart. I loved traveling to Africa and Cuba this past year and it has influenced my style of playing, writing and performing.”
