Jessica Stewart is a powerful musical spirit. Infusing a blend of Americana, Folk, Country, and Pop/Rock style into her music. She compels listeners to join the honest and entertaining musical journey through everyday life emotion.
Growing up, in a small town in Georgia, the love of music started at a young age. The house filled with music from her parent’s record collection which included Elvis Presley, Conway Twitty, Eddie Rabbit, Waylon Jennings, Don Williams, Crystal Gayle and many others served as a starting point. At the age of four Jessica Stewart advised her mother she wanted to listen to only Barbara Mandrell music after seeing “The Barbara Mandrell and Mandrell Sister Show” on television. That declaration would be the first brick in the foundation of the musical influences chosen by Jessica Stewart to shape the path she would travel. Of course, Barbara Mandrell was not the only music playing in the house for too long. The hits of Country Music radio in the late 80’s and early 90’s played an important role of influence especially the albums of Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire. Jessica Stewart recently stated, “I am sure I was the only one in my 7th grade class listening to the music of Bob Wills and TLC. I have always loved music and never been opposed to listening to anything at least once.”
During the summer of 2011, after a music event, her brother advised her to seriously consider focusing on songwriting and that conversation would prove to be a pivotal moment. Jessica Stewart would find herself intrigued with the songwriting catalog of Shelby Lynne, Lucinda Williams and Robert Ellis confirming the direction she wanted her music to go. Soon after the conversation with her brother, Jessica Stewart would play her music at venues in front of crowds (as large as large as 3,000) at Anderson Music Hall in North Georgia to an intimate music setting found at the renowned Eddie’s Attic, Atlanta, GA
