My influences are every single person I've ever heard play. Honestly, never listen to any one group or person too much, or you will start to sound like them.
“It makes it all worth it for me when people take something away from what they hear in my music” replied artist Jessica Sonner in a recent interview. Originally from the mountains of Colorado, currently based in Chicago, IL, Jessica has established herself as a staple up and coming singer/songwriter. Jessica was recently named Madison County’s best up and coming vocalist for 2005 in Indiana where she spent time studying with other songwriters after college. Her down to earth approachability and heart-warming songs are quickly catching the hearts of both fan and industry alike. Jessica recently completed a strong demo just before a career threatening snow-boarding accident in January this year. The self-titled EP features favorites “Rescue Me” “Fool” and “Open Your Eyes”. Barista by day, musician by night, Jessica has been singing her heart out all over the country for the past three years. Though wooing audiences with her compelling lyrics and soulful vocals, her experience has not been limited to simply performance. Jessica has also assisted in the foundation of what is now Launch Records and continues to remain an independent musician. Jess has shared the stage with musicians including Dave Barnes, Jon McLaughlin, Sarah Scharbrough and Betsy Walker. Still writing and performing for anyone and everyone who will listen, she’s off to a good start. Armed with the road ahead, a solid acoustic sound, and a sultry unforgettable voice, Jessica is making her way to an iPod near you.
