Jessie James Biography

Most Wanted

Pop-newcomer Jessie James shares her name with a legendary outlaw of the Wild West, so it’s no surprise that her first single is called Wanted. Born in a field hospital in Italy, this self-described military brat has a mixed Greek and Italian heritage, but her voice is pure pop, at times sounding a lot like early Christina Aguilera.


Getting Started

Jessie was bitten by the music bug after getting a toy mic and recorder from her Mom as a gift. By the time she was 9, Jessie was writing her own songs[/kwlink] and strumming a plastic guitar and at 15 she hit America’s music capitol, Nashville, to start working with some writing and production professionals.


Sing For Your Supper

After one of her song demos landed in the lap of Mercury Records President David Massey, Jessie impressed iconic music executive and Island Def Jam boss Antonio “L.A.” Reid so much that he started dancing, took her to dinner, and welcomed her to the label.


What's Next?

Next, Jessie will join the Jonas Brothers on stage as they start their summer tour in Dallas, Texas. She’s also appearing in a huge music/fashion campaign for shoe giant Steve Madden. Finally, look out for Jessie’s highly anticipated debut album to drop on July 28th.
