Jessa Kenzi is an up and coming Singer/Songwriter from Pittsburgh, PA. Jessa started singing at the age of 5, and has never stopped. She is self taught on piano and guitar. When she was 6 years old, her Pap told her he wanted her to learn to play the piano. Determined to make him proud, she learned to play “Fur Elise” by ear, which she would play constantly. This is when her love for music really began. Over the years, she has been in numerous local singing competitions and musicals. At the age of 11, she sang the National Anthem for the first time for the Fort Armstrong Rodeo in Ford City, PA.
She started writing her own songs in 2018. One day, she just sat down, and started to reflect on her past experiences in her life, and just started writing songs and lyrics, and the melodies began to flow. Her songs and lyrics are based on her real life experiences of family relationships, friends, and of course, herself. She has a life long dream of singing and songwriting. She says it’s in her blood, and she will never stop doing what she loves. Music is, truly, her escape.
Her dream and ultimate goal has always been to have a career in music. Her Pap always called her his Little Star, and since his passing, she feels music connects her to him. She hopes he is looking down proud as he can be of her accomplishments. No matter what the future holds for Jessa, music will always be an important part of her life.
