-After graduating from USC with a degree in jazz studies, Jessy’s equal passion for pop led her quickly into recording sessions with artists like Michael Buble, followed over the years by tours with Jessica Simpson, The Temptations and Michael Bolton. In 2004, Jessy joined the cast of the off-Broadway show “Blast!” and drew on her multitude of skills as an actress, singer, dancer and sax player as she performed throughout the U.S., in London and Tokyo. Even while working with pop and Latin artists, she put together her own band, performing at such L.A. hotspots as The Jazz Bakery and, through her work with the Henry Mancini Institute and Orchestra, performing at numerous official functions and private parties.
In addition to her airplay and chart success, tours with smooth jazz greats like Lorber, Gerald Albright, Jeff Lorber, Euge Groove and Peter White, and her own international tours everywhere from Cuba, Nigeria and Malaysia to the Philippines and Japan, Jessy has performed on the hit television competition shows “American Idol” and “The Voice.” The year Steven Tyler was a judge on “Idol,” he was so impressed with her performances that he invited her to play on Aerosmith’s 2012 album Music From Another Dimension.-
