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. Following her national music debut on Season 4 of NBC’s The Voice, she released a self-written and produced EP called “Don’t Forget My Name.”
Since then, she has headlined stages from coast to coast, supporting national acts including Gavin DeGraw, Fitz and the Tantrums, Patti Labelle and Family Stone. She’s performed at major festivals including Bottlerock Napa in 2017 as well as previous festivals like SXSW, BottleRock, Sunset Strip Music Festival and Long Beach New Years Eve. In 2015, she sang toured as a featured artist/vocalist with fellow soul singer Allen Stone’s national tour supporting his recent release Radius. In 2016, she transitioned into opening for Allen on his west coast dates — as well as Charles Bradley. Jessica is currently working on her debut album with producer Callum Connor (Anderson .Paak producer/DJ), producer/drummer Alex Elena (Alice Smith, Citizen Cope) and producer/guitarist Topher Mohr (Mayer Hawthorne).
The first single, “Far Away”, was released on SoulTracks.com and debuted on Apple Music (#2) and iTunes R&B Hot Tracks. Additionally, her latest EP of remixes of “Far Away”, were remixed by various DJs including DJ A1 (Erykah Badu), DJ Callum Connor (Anderson .Paak), DJ Val Fleury (Gavin Turek), DJ Dom Beets (Casey Veggies) premiered in May 2017 exclusively on Essence with support from DJ Valida at KCRW.
