“She generates lush pop-rock music compositions loaded in vocal muscle and fearless arrangements of guitar, keys, drums and brass (yes, brass). Layers fold into layers.” - Frank Peebles, Prince George Citizen
Jessica Speziale is a Pop/Rock Powerhouse with the spirit of Tina Turner and the soul of Alicia Keys.
Speziale blends rock with soul, roots and 90s alternative for a fresh, high-power sound that is capturing the imaginations of music fans across Canada, in the US, and abroad.
Heavy on vocal harmonies, raw emotion, and love for crunchy guitars and wailing horns, Speziale names influences ranging from Alanis Morissette, to Hanson, silverchair, and Sharon Jones.
Speziale's latest release, Shine (MC2 Music Media, 2014), is a showcase of her varied influences taking listeners from intimate and powerful stories of physical abuse told through the string-laden rock ballad, Eyes Closed, to the the brighter side of human interaction depicted in the fun, bouncy, and trumpet-infused title track, Shine.
Shine has received airplay on college/University radio across Canada, on CBC Radio including Metro Morning for songs 'Everything' and 'Stay', and her music video for title track, 'Shine', has been aired on VMIX on OMNI.2 Television.
She's put over 20,000 km on her touring schedule in 2016 including a cross-Canada tour on the Via Rail train, sold out performances in both Toronto, Ontario and Prince George, British Columbia, and a Southern Ontario tour with artist Brooklyn Doran. Jessica has played several showcases at festivals including Canadian Music Week, the Newmarket Jazz Festival, Indie Week and NXNE.
