TEAM BLAKE-NBC THE VOICE
JessLee was recently a contestant on Season 14 NBC The Voice-Team Blake. The thrilling experience put her in front of top celebrities like Trace Adkins, who said, “JessLee, I like female vocals that are just powerful just pow sit you back in your seat.” She turned the chairs of both Kelly Clarkson who said, “JessLee you are amazing you are a phenomenal singer” and her coach Blake Shelton who said, “JessLee has this very powerful rock edge.” , “JessLee your attack singing the chorus, you just have such a grip- an attack.” and JessLee, what you naturally had on this song was your attack.” But Alicia Keyes best described JessLee when she said, “That was a beautiful testament to you JessLee reminding us that you are country rock, I think that is a cool way to show that you have major versatility. You don’t back down, incredible job, well done!”
JessLee was originally contacted by The Voice series because of her single “Burn”. It was nominated for the Hollywood Music in Media Awards for the country genre category and was played on mainstream FM Radio WIRK 103.1 and 94.3 Rewind in Clarkesville, TN. “Burn” was also JessLee’s first VEVO music video and has been viewed over 210,000 views on social media. It caught the eye of NBC and they followed up on her success and invited her to skip the 40,000 person cattle call. They immediately flew her to LA for an audition with the executive producers. She moved on to the Blinds Auditions and picked Blake Shelton. She says she picked Blake because he recognized her country rock style and seemed to understand the artist she is.
STYLE OF MUSIC
JessLee is staying ahead of the musical evolution and she brings an innovative country rock style like no other. She has created her own genre that she calls “Punktry”. It is best described as Avril Lavigne meets Carrie Underwood. She is proving that hard work and perseverance is what it takes to make it in this industry. As soon as her contracts were clear from the television series JessLee released her album “Strong” on June 15, 2018. It peaked at 76 on the Apple iTunes charts. The first track on the album is also the theme song for her nonprofit program called S.T.R.O.N.G. and 2nd track on the album: “My Favorite Song”, was her 2nd VEVO music video which released on June 21, 2018. “My Favorite Song” is currently on rotation with B94.7 Fresh Country and GYL and played on country music radio stations across the Treasure and Space Coast.
Life has never been as easy as JessLee makes it look to outsiders. It has been full of both positive and negative experiences. Raised with her two sisters, both also musicians, by a single parent, her mom. It was a humble Florida home which was made up of four hard working ladies. JessLee says there were difficulties growing up with an abusive biological father and later completely estranged. She saw her mom experience financial difficulties as a single parent at times working 3 jobs to support three girls. JessLee personally continually struggled with her weight, self-confidence, and self-love. She says all of this taught her to become the fighter she is today. “I have learned to turn negative situations into positive motivations which keep getting me closer to my dreams.”
