Jessica Childress is an LA-based singer/songwriter. She is reminiscent of the golden age of classic soul, with an enormous voice that combines traditional R&B with a rock n' roll energy.

Since then, she has headlined stages from coast to coast, supporting national acts including Gavin DeGraw and Fitz and the Tantrums. She’s performed at major festivals including SXSW, Sunset Strip Music Festival and Long Beach New Years Eve. Jessica has also shared the stage with greats like Richie Sambora, Charles Kelley from Lady Antebellum and OAR. Recently, she sang background vocals for fellow soul singer Allen Stone’s national tour supporting his recent release Radius.
