Jessica Leigh is a 19-year-old singer/songwriter from a sunny little town at the top of New Zealand's south island. Her songs fall into the self-proclaimed genre of 'growing pains' and reflect on themes integral to adolescence - including young love, heartache, nostalgia, boredom and loneliness.
She has been writing songs since the age of 12 and has been honing her craft ever since, receiving critical acclaim in recent years.
Leigh grew up listening to country/folk music icons Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan, alongside acts from the opposite end of the musical spectrum like Pink Floyd and The Pixies. As a result of these mixed influences, her music refuses to be contained to a singular genre and spans from heart-wrenching piano ballads to heavy synth pop/rock anthems.
