A singer-songwriter from Missouri, Jessica Harper is a multi-genre artist currently living in Los Angeles. Her music is conceptually playful and lyrically thoughtful. It feels like walking around in NY in the 1960’s. Jessica's wide range of influences include Queen, Adele, and Maurice Ravel. She writes as a way to open conversations she believes her generation needs to continue. Her songs discuss topics from eating disorders (Lemon Juice) to the recent opioid epidemic (Empty).
"We live in a time with so much freedom to express our personal beliefs and discuss issues like never before. When I write, I'm expressing what I've gone through and how I feel...but when I perform, I'm releasing myself to give the music to the audience and let the song become whatever it means for the listener."
Jessica currently attends University of Southern California where she studies Popular Music Performance with an emphasis as a Singer/Songwriter. She grew up classically trained in voice & piano and has been weaving her operatic origins into rock since she started writing music seriously at age 14.
She was recently named a YoungArts winner in both Popular Voice and Singer/Songwriter and attended the Grammy Foundation's "Grammy Camp" for songwriting.
Jessica is currently working on bringing a humanitarian aspect to her music. She has already raised awareness (and thousands of dollars!) for the Children's Miracle Network from her first single "Strong Again" and benefit concerts.
