From Jess Lovatt
After 3 years of study at the New Zealand School of Music majoring in jazz vocals, doing many jazz gigs with top New Zealand jazz musicians and writing original music along the way, Jess Lovatt was spoilt for choice when it came to putting a band together to play her music. Now with a highly skilled and experienced band of musicians with amazing hearts to reach out to people through the arts, her original music all came together in its full form. Moving away from the typical jazz standards, but still keeping somewhat of an influence of jazz, Jess Lovatt's music took on a more contemporary, soulful, singer songwriter flavour. Through her various experiences of working with girls on the street to mentoring teenage girls, Jess Lovatt's songs express a longing for the world to change and to put faith into action. Her vision is to write music of influence that is relatable to all types of people.
