Born and bred in New York city, JES started singing and writing songs at a early age. After answering an advert in the village voice, her first professional recordings were made at the tender age of 14. JES tirelessly developed her craft over the coming years and gained a reputation among NY’s elite producers as the voice that could sell any song. Her own success didn’t materialize until she moved to California and began working with DJ’s and producers from the developing electronic music scene.
JES had found a new channel for her music. The first major success came with world renowned DJ Paul Van Dyk’s “Politics Of Dancing” compilation CD. “P-O-D” opened the door to a flood of collaboration requests. Shortly after it’s release, JES wrote and recorded “As The Rush Comes” with then unknown Bay Area DJ’s, Gabriel & Dresden. The song, released under the “Motorcycle” monger, helped to redefine the landscape of modern dance music. JES’ soulful voice and edgy autobiographical songwriting was a refreshing departure for the electronic music world and helped to define the song’s genre blurring sound.
After meeting Tiesto to talk about collaborating together, the worlds #1 DJ signed her to his own label Black Hole Recordings/Magik Muzik. Four artist albums followed and JES continues to collaborate with a host of the industry’s best talent. Whether she’s releasing her own song or joining forces with the likes of Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Cosmic Gate, BT, Ferry Corsten and ATB, her unmistakable voice and touching songs have enchanted an every growing legion of fans.
