Jessica “Jess” Meuse is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist from Slapout, Alabama who began performing in public at age 10. Music has always been part of Jessica’s life and she plays several instruments - she is classically trained on violin, and self-taught at guitar and piano.
Meuse states she is, "influenced by virtually every genre of music." though she calls her style "a blend of southern rock with alternative and rock n’ roll." Her music was once described "rock...infused with country and metal." Her musical influences include Coldplay, Miranda Lambert, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Stevie Nicks, Death Cab for Cutie, Bruno Mars, and Shinedown.
When Jess was 20, she won the state-wide artist showcase, Stars of Alabama. In 2013, she took first place in a local singer/songwriter competition at the Workplay Theater in Birmingham, Alabama. Since then she has opened for both national and local acts across the southeast. Jessica was a contestant on Season 3 of NBC’s The Voice in 2012, where she made it to the blind auditions. In summer 2013, she won a spot to perform a set at the Vans Warped Tour in Atlanta, Georgia.
In 2013-2014, Jess competed on the national television series American Idol®, finishing in 4th place. She became the first person in the history of the show to perform an original song, “Blue-Eyed Lie,” during the finals. She went on to tour with the Idols LIVE Tour in summer 2014, visiting 40 different cities in the United States and Canada. Post American Idol®, Jessica released her first independent single, “Done”, recorded and mixed by a small production team based in Los Angeles. On January 1, 2016, she released her second independent single, “Rio Grande”. She plans to release an EP as soon as possible and tour the country once more. Jess is actively seeking management, writing new material, and participating in as many musical opportunities as possible.
We are thrilled Jessica Meuse has chosen to include HIT Idol in her 2016 tour schedule – we look forward to welcoming her to Ironwood!
