Some people won't be pinned down. Just when you think you’ve got them comfortably located in one area of your music collection, they spin their creativity on its head and send your playlists into a frenzy. Is it EDM ? Is it Rock ? Is it Dance ? is it Poptronica? How do you bring all of that together and still come up with something that blows you away with every note ......... meet JES.
This chart topping, award winning New Yorker has packed four albums, two Billboard #1 singles, intercontinental touring and countless superstar DJ collaborations into five short years as a solo artist. Since her legendary release “As The Rush Comes” with Motorcycle redefined the landscape of EDM, JES has propelled an unending stream of solo hit songs and collaborations with a who’s who of the worlds most prominent DJ’s including TIesto, Armin Van Buuren, Kaskade, BT, Richard Durand and Cosmic Gate. Along the way JES has collected awards from the prestigious International Dance Music Awards at Miami’s WMC, The ISC (International Songwriting Competition ‘08’ 09 and ‘10) and topped Billboard’s “Most Played Dance Songs of the Decade” chart (2000-2010). Her tours have touched the shores of 6 continents and she was the only Coca Cola WE8 artist to be invited to perform at the Beijing Olympics. So what drives an artist to this level of quantum achievement?
“Music is a connection for me” says JES as she gets ready to perform the first of today’s two San Francisco dates on her current “Unleash The Beat” tour. “When you get on stage in front of people they can see this comes from the heart, it just connects”. Watching JES captivate the audience you get the sense that she is driven by something more than just music. “The shows are raw emotion, thats what pushes me to keep going. The messages and posts I get from people saying you inspired me or helped me through a bad time in my life. We all need that”.
Her latest album “Unleash The Beat” (Ultra Music Magik Muzik) has recently topped the UK’s Music Week Upfront Club Chart. It brings together some of JES’ favorite collaborators and includes the current radio hits “Awaken” and ”Every Other Way” (with BT). “The most important part of writing songs with other artists is that I like what they do, there has to be some chemistry there to get the fire going”. JES and BT met during Tiestos “Elements of Life Tour” in 2008 and, “we instantly understood each others creativity”. Shortly after that meeting they recorded the idea that would become “Every Other Way” at BT’s Maryland studio. “I knew it was special as soon as we started to play it” said JES, “but I never expected it to dominate dance music radio the way it has this year”.
“Awaken,” a single from last years “High Glow” album (Ultra Music Magik Muzik) has also been a staple of dance music radio’s daytime play lists. “That song has really had a life of it’s own. The lyrics seemed to touch people on a deeper level”. After receiving so much positive feedback JES decided to make the song the center of her own Awaken Campaign (http://awakencampaign.com/), a blog and website focusing on her own charitable efforts as well as others. Public recognition of the campaign resulted in a gala performance at this years Human Rights Campaign fundraiser in Seattle. During her post show address she reflected “One positive action leads to another. [the awaken campaign] is a place where people can start to realize their own ambition to help.”
Since being signed by Tiesto to his (then) own label Black Hole Recordings in 2007 JES’ career has developed at a dizzying pace. Tour performances all over the world with every major club brand. Dance floor credibility and mainstream radio support, solo chart success and collaborative eminence have all led her to the place she is right now, tearing up the stage in front of thousands of adoring fans in San Francisco. Once again I’d like to say meet JES ... but I’m guessing you already have.
