Audiences, critics, and peers all agree: Jessica Caylyn is an unstoppable cocktail of sassy confidence, vocal power, and fearless determination. Jessica hit the stage early. At 10 years of age, she fell in love with the “natural high” of live performing, and Bay Area audiences were quick to fall in love with her. It wasn’t long before Jessica was singing the national anthem to thousands at gargantuan venues like AT&T Stadium.<br>
<br>She soon found her home turf: country-rock. In early 2010, she formed the Jessica Caylyn Band, a 5-piece lineup of top-notch musicians. She immediately began performing widely, earning accolades, and garnering exuberant reviews. With a soulful voice compared to Adele or Joss Stone, with the power, breath control, and wide range of Martina McBride,” she easily took the Bay Area music scene by storm.<br>
<br>“Performing will always be my true passion,” says Jessica, and it’s evident. She achieves a level of audience interaction that many performers can only wish for. Her personality is genuine and high-energy. Her stage presence is as spontaneous as it is audacious. Jessica is a consummate crowd-worker, and her impromptu remarks always make for a memorable show. Jessica performs a lively combo of both modern country songs and originals. Live audiences are often the very first to hear Jessica’s unrecorded originals, hot off the griddle. <br>
<br>Since October 2010, Jessica has been taking regular trips to Nashville to co-write with Music City's experienced songwritering community. It was there she met her producer, Steffon Hamulak, who assembled a crack team of big-name country sidemen to back Jessica on her first EP, On the Edge. Today, On the Edge has been heard over the airwaves in the U.S., Canada, Australia, Germany, and the U.K. It features three upbeat songs and a bonus ballad. With the exception of one, all were penned in part by Jessica. <br>
<br>“Just Can’t Help Myself,” was chosen April 2011 Best Song of the Month by Songwriter Universe. The same song took May 2011 Best Song of the Month at the Nashville Songwriters Association International's Sacramento Chapter. Jessica has received many accolades for her music including top finalist for 2012 Best Country Artist by Artists in Music Awards.<br>
<br>Jessica has performed at Laguna Seca Raceway, the Oakland Coliseum, Alcatraz Island, 12th & Porter, and hotels in Nashville, casinos, and countless clubs, restaurants, street festivals, wine festivals, fairs, private parties, and weddings in California.
Her media credits include an appearance on Good Day Sacramento, a local morning TV show, where she performed three songs live from her EP. She was interviewed at length on Robin Fahr's TV show Conversations. The Brentwood Press, Contra Costa Times, 110 Magazine, and multiple music e-zines have covered the launch of her career as a performing songwriter. <br>
Jessica' goal is to be performing nationally, if not internationally, within the next five years and continue writing songs. She’s got talent, determination, and isn’t afraid of rejection—ingredients to success in the music industry. Look out world!
