Jess magic is a heartist...
A soul-stirring songstress, and a muse for today's generation of change-makers.
More than a singer, Jess Magic is a musical story-teller who creates compelling invitations for people to interact with life from an open heart. In a world where so many are longing for deeper levels of connection, authentic expression and intimacy, Jess weaves a "spell" of love with each song and each story to reveal aspects of the human experience that penetrate, and crack open the hearts of those who are touched by her presence.
As an emcee (a.k.a. "Mistress of Ceremonies"), a speaker and a social entrepreneur, Jess Magic uses her voice as a vehicle to shift predominant attitudes, feelings and behaviors from “consumer” to “creator” by breaking down the barrier between the artist and the audience and giving people permission to be raw, real, and to rise into their own forms of expression and heARTistry.
Jess has been touring nationally and internationally from San Francisco to Harlem, Necker Island to New Zealand, Israel to Morocco, Bali to Mexico, offering her virtual Free Your Voice programs, Feminine Embodiment retreats and offering live Songversations where she blends story-telling with original music and improvisation, inviting the audience and other performing artists to be a part of the creative process.
Magic traverses diverse cultural landscapes by connecting directly to the aspects of humanity that anyone and everyone can connect with. She was invited by the All Ladies League to perform at the opening ceremony of the 2016 Women Economic Forum in New Delhi for 1500 women from 155 different countries, and the black tie Women in Leadership Gala at the 2016 COPP 22 in Marrakech. She has offered her Free Your Voice program and original gospel music at California's Lightning in a Bottle festival, been a featured speaker and performer at Costa Rica's Envision Festival and most recently was invited to emcee Bali Spirit Festival 2018. Her message of honoring and listening to our hearts transcends race, age, culture, socio-economic status and appeals to parts of the human experience that are arguably our most tender, resilient, and sacred gifts.
She has supported thousands of men and women from all walks of life in overcoming the shame, fear, and self-judgment that have inhibited their ability to discover, experience and express their feelings, their creative expression and their capacity to create intimacy with themselves and others, by giving them safe spaces to peel back the layers, and be seen.
Her favorite saying is “We don’t sing to be good. We sing to be free."
