Tune in daily all this week at 3:40 pm as Jay & C-P feature JESSICA ALLOSSERY on the XS Local Spotlight.

Jessica’s musical career began on her farm in Thamesville Ontario, starting with the piano at the young age of 6. She attended lessons every week at her neighbor’s house, and spent her summers selling sweet corn to the locals on the highway.

She lost her interest with piano when she started high school and was convinced that her musical career would be tucked away in the shower, or humming down old dirt roads.

After high school, she lived in Brazil for one year and got her first taste of singing in front of an audience – in Portuguese at that! When she returned back to Canada, she enrolled in college to pursue a new dream of documentary filmmaking, to show the world what she has seen through the lens of a camera.

That September of 2008 changed her life! She didn’t own a television in her lonely house, so the only thing she had to occupy her time was the Internet and YouTube. She stumbled upon song covers and became inspired to learn guitar herself. She was comfortable behind the guitar in no time, advanced quite quickly and began writing her own songs only 4 months later.

Recently, Jessica’s song “Change the World” has been picked up by Telus’ newest ad campaign “We Give Where We Live”. The commercial is airing nationally across many Canadian Television networks.

Jessica’s lyrics are graceful, honest and sweet just like her personality. She inspires hundreds of people every day to follow their dreams, and help make the world a hopeful place for everyone. Jessica intends to “Change the World” through music and film, and with grace, her truthful melodies will leave you feeling uplifted and inspired.

Jess aspires to make a change with her music and within her community and the world she lives in. She has recently gained much local press for her work as an aspiring film-maker and her goal to put an end to bullying.
