While growing up in San Jose, CA, Jessica's grandmother introduced her to the classic musicals which hooked her to her first idols: Judy Garland, Fred Astaire, and Bing Crosby. Johnson then began her musical journey with formal vocal training at the age of 5. By 7, she began competing at every bay area competition she could find, and she garnered an impressive array of awards. By age 12 Johnson began singing the National Anthem for the San Jose Sharks, which eventually parlayed into singing the Anthem for every notable professional sports organization on the West Coast.
The Bay Area Vocalist has performed as the opening act for Lani Misalucha and the Society of Seven at the Hollywood Palladium. Jessica was a featured artist several times at San Jose Jazz Festival, as well as countless venues across the West Coast.
From the moment Jessica walks on stage, her audience is held in the palm of her hand. With her rich sultry voice, she scats, swings, and melts your heart, leaving you yearning for more.
