Jessica Lee Jessica Lee

Jessica Lee is an American jazz & blues vocalist, songwriter (ASCAP) and recording artist, born in Manassas, VA. Lee’s vocals reflect the influence of classic jazz, blues, rhythm & blues and gospel, but always with a heavy emphasis on the blues. Her musical motto is to study and perform “something old, something new, something borrowed... but always blue.” Lee performs at jazz and blues clubs, music festivals, charitable and private events, universities and concert halls throughout the U.S. She has performed at legendary clubs such as Antone’s in Austin, Texas and James Street in Pittsburgh, PA and is featured frequently at major charitable events. For example, Jessica was the featured jazz & blues singer to perform a live, nationally- broadcasted concert benefiting the Make-a-Wish-Foundation from the WQED TV Studios in Pittsburgh and has also been a featured singer for the Susan B. Komen Race for the Cure and other national charity events. Internationally, record label EQ Music has licensed songs from Jessica’s debut “Bluebird Fly” album for inclusion in seven international compilation albums, including for their “Greatest Audiophile Voices” album series,“The Best Pop Jazz” album, and “When Blues Meets Jazz,” which are all enjoying international distribution. This record label also represents the songs of Jessica’s most recent studio album – “Rhythms of Anyway” – into international markets, which includes original compositions as well as Jazz, Blues and Soul classics and features the legendary Jazz drummer Roger Humphries and guitarist Mark Strickland.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
