Raised in Houston and now based in Chicago, new artist Jessie DeFranco takes to the scene with the goal of holding a mirror to our inner complexity through music. Just as the powerful and complex spectrum of emotion can be mere fleeting moments, Jessie writes her music - in moments - to take the listener on a journey through the depths and peaks of the human condition and experience.

Most inspired by the sounds of Jordan Rakei, Moonchild, and Nick Hakim, Jessie takes influence from her favorite, progressive musicians within the realms of Jazz, Soul, and RnB. However, her ethereal vocals allow her to blend and transcend these genres. With many goals in mind as a developing songwriter, music then becomes another language - exposing the human experience.
