About Jess

Singer, song-writer, guitarist. Session drummer for bands, singer in resteraunts and bars of all varieties, looking to sing and/or drum.

I am known most for my ability to silence a room and capture and audience. I am very aware of the connection between performer and audience. Some times perhaps people are moved to tears, other times, singing along and dancing. This is what I love about performing, all the different ways you can connect with individuals and collective groups. I love bringing joy to a room, likewise I love the feeling when I know I've moved somebody emotionally, it is what music is all about. Overall I love the give and receive of energy when playing live music and creating lovely memories for whoever is receiving it. Starting from 16, I've sang at many charity fairs, pubs, restaurants, and rock and roll bands as a front woman. From 18 onwards I had regular slots as a walkabout singer in lounge 10, regular slots at Revolutions bars. Towards 20, regular gigs in a rock band again, either drumming or singing, we would play birthday parties, events, parties, weddings, venues in Manchester. 22 and onwards I found myself with regular slots in pubs in glossop, wilsmlow, urmston, Cheadle, sheffield, singing a selection of covers from jazz, classic, blues, rock and roll (old school) to pop and rock (newer stuff) acoustic, easy listening. In this time I've played a few of the festivals in england. I have travelled and played in many bars and hotel rooftops all over Morocco twice selling my album and playing covers, and then all over Bali and Portugal too. I love sharing music and fun and getting everybody singing along altogether and sharing in an uplifting and memorable experience! In bands I can do any genre, rock, blues, rock and roll, gypsy, popular songs, jazz songs, old school, newer more mainstream, ect. I am self taught on guitar, piano, drums, vocals, and love to share that passion with others!

To Whom It May Concert: I am writing to endorse the work of Ms Jess Megson, Drummer, guitarist and vocalist. She has performed on numerous occasions at events which have been supplied by Purple Elk Productions, and over the years I have come to know her well. I have always found Jess to be reliable and professional, and her playing always adds lots to whichever ensemble she is performing with. I am delighted to recommend her without reservation. If there is any further information which you would like, please feel free to contact me. Elk Burland

Jess is a standout songwriter capable of creating wonderful emotive soundscapes. Her creative use of chords and tones combined with her textured vocals makes her a joy to record.
