Earnest and raw, Jessie's music comes from a genuine place. Born in Toronto, Canada to Colombian immigrants - Jessie’s story is one that constantly weaves worlds together. A vocalist from birth, Jessie Reyez was first introduced to the guitar by her father as a young girl and soon became inseparable with the instrument.
After catching some early attention via her work online in 2014, Jessie attented The Remix Project’s Academy of Recording Arts -an internationally awarded artistic incubator. Graduating at the end of that year, Jessie began taking part in writing camps and connecting with diverse talents across the world such as King Louie, Chance the rapper, Calvin Harris & frequent collaborator Tim Suby.
In late 2016 "Figures", the violent heartbreak anthem, was the first song released off her debut EP "Kiddo". Inspired by some of her most emotional experiences, the EP is a soundscape of Jessie's life. Whether sad, angry or triumphant, "Kiddo" gracefully crosses lines and callously ignores boundaries. When asked what genre she considers herself, Jessie will often reply in complete seriousness; “Quentin Tarantino".
