ALL AGES WELCOME!
Honest, unassuming, and passionate, Jess Godwin possesses one of the most dynamic voices both in and beyond the Chicago music scene. Combine the music of Alicia Keys, Sara Bareilles, Norah Jones, and Stevie Wonder, and you get the unique sound of this energetic redhead. Her soul-bearing lyrics will touch your heart, and her music will make you tap your feet and sing along at the same time.
Born in Atlanta, Godwin moved around a lot as a child – 5 states and 10 different schools to be exact! Eventually, Jess and her family finally settled in Chicago. She has been a proud resident of the Windy City for the past 14 years.
She has released four EPs, each one demonstrating her tremendous talent and wide-ranging musical influences: To the Heart of It, Quiet the Room (produced by Jan Smith, vocal coach to Usher, Justin Bieber, The Band Perry), Klutz, and her most recent self titled EP released in November. Godwin’s single, Katy’s Side, was featured on Keeping up with the Kardashians this summer.
