Jessie J

Siobhanne Beattie


Not since Lily Allen at her peak has Britain seen such sassy attitude and clever “rap-like” lyrics.  Born Jessica Ellen Cornish in London 1988, Jessie J has already enjoyed stellar success, with promise of even bigger and better things to come.

Do It Like A Dude was mainstream music’s raunchy, grime-inspired pop introduction to Jessie J.  Price Tag featured rapper, B.O.B, reinforcing that some matters are more important than money and secured Jessie J’s first UK No.1 single.

Who You Are, Jessie J’s debut album, was released in February 2011, following her Brit Awards Critic’s Choice win, putting her in excellent company, as previous winner’s include Adele, Florence Welch and Ellie Goulding, who have all went on to phenemonal success in both the UK and US.

Jessie J’s sound and style have put her at the forefront of British pop, at a time when female competition is fierce, with Florence + The Machine due to release a second album and Adele enjoying stellar success with her latest album, “21”.

Jessie brings a fresh, much-needed outlook into mainstream music, and she has effortlessly filled the niche that Lily Allen’s “retirement” has left – not relying on looks, or skimpy outfits to achieve recognition or success.

Jessie J has recently announced her assault on the UK with an upcoming tour scheduled for October/November 2011 and will see her perform in cities, including Manchester, Liverpool, Edinburgh and Cardiff.

Who You Are is available now.
