Artists biography

Jess is an acoustic fingerstyle guitarist from England, UK. In Summer 2015/16, Jess had the opportunity to tour in Europe for 3 and half months which has opened a wide range of doors for her. As Jess is composing and performing arrangements and her own material, her style of playing includes the bass and the rhythm being played with the thumb and melodies, harmonies and other rhythm parts with the fingers. Percussion sounds are also added in different ways on the guitar and keeps the audience engaged for every show. The techniques were inspired by acoustic artists including Tommy Emmanuel, Chet Atkins, Merle Travis, Mark Knopfler, Andy McKee and other guitarists such as Jimi Hendrix, Joe Satriani and Steve Lukathar. Jess has also been recognised and supported by the "Prince of Acoustic Guitar" Andrea Valeri, also known as her Italian Brother. As now she has completed her final year studies at University, she continues to gain the success and reputation for herself at such a young age. Despite her age, the success from this young star is something to watch out for.
