ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jessica is foremost a harpist and free spirit. Jessica moved to Dijon, France in 2011 after travelling around the world exploring music and trees. Her songs have an original style and sincerity, with hypnotic melodies, and an earthy tone. They celebrate mystery, women, and nature. Her music is often to compared to the depth and playfulness of Regina Spector. Jess uses her harp as a percussion instrument, sings into the harp to create echo sounds, and play the harmonica and harp at the same time.
Jess currently tours around France and Belgium with the show “O”, tours as a solo artist with her new album “Colors”, and is working on the project ʼWomansong’ with women in the Congo.
Her artistic journey
Jessica Browning decided at the age of three years to become a harpist. She grew up in the United States, in Memphis and in Philadelphia, and began playing the harp when she was five years old.
It is however a few years later, in New Zealand, the woman, who just graduated in psychology from Bryn Mawr College, rediscovered her true love. After five months of silence and meditation in a Buddhist monastery, Jess began to create the music she had in mind and began to sing after a period of deep silence.
Jessica then moved to Tasmania, where she studied the harp with Christina Baehr. Christina encouraged her to compose and sing; here Jessica gave her first professional concerts.
On her arrival in France, she studied with the harpist Megan Methaney in the south of France and at the Conservatory of Dijon. She also regularly performed at bars and venues across Dijon. In one particular café called “Les Causeries des Mondes,” she was noticed by Jean-Philippe Naas the director of the theater company “En Attendant.” He asked her to sing and write the music in the creation of his new show, "O".

Jessica is the musical energy and presence in the children's show "O".
The renown illustrator/author Kitty Crowther and Jessica worked together to create the story, images, and Jessica wrote the music. The story is built around books and dreams. She has composed and performed on stages all across Europe. The show is currently on tour in France, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.

Colors
Jessica finished her first album, Colors, released in February 2013.
As on stage, Jessica reveals strong, deep, and sincere emotions, enhanced by a perfectly mastered and ethereal voice; leaving the audience inspired and mystified.
The eight songs on the album are marked by a stamp that combines candor, confidence, the presence of the harp, and her partner Jessica.

Sensitive to the situation of women in the world, Jessica is in the creation process of a music project in collaboration with the association The Resolve Network (http://www.resolvenetwork.org). The association empowers Congolese women living in conflict zones, through micro-credit, to rebuild their lives and communities, and to build peace on solid foundations.
In this project, Jessica will use her harp to accompany the text, music and voices of these women who act for their future. This project is planned for 2015.
