Bobbi J.'s musical education started with the solid foundation of classical technique yet eventually led her to broaden her musical horizons at Berklee College of Music with a degree in Pro Music Cum Laude. Her interest in the classical genre is now purely experimental, and she continues to find deeper enjoyment in jazz, blues, and bossa styles. Her influences tend to be artists that, through solid technique, are able to vocally express undeniable emotional depth. Maria Callas, Jeff Buckley, Ann Wilson, Geoff Tate, Shirley Horn, and George Michael are a few.
