‘Leoness’ (Jess) is an international soul vocalist specialising in luxury and bespoke events, including destination weddings. Growing up with both parents in a blues band, Leoness found her love of music from a very young age and her early introduction to jazz & blues is reflected in her unique sound.
Leoness’ influences include Lauryn Hill, Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald, Whitney Houston and Nat King Cole. During the 90’s her passion for RnB and Hip Hop music was born with artists such as Aaliyah, 2Pac, Donnell Jones and Mase making an impact.
With a wide repertoire spanning from old-school rnb through to jazz, Leoness enjoys blending soft, soulful melodies with heavy beats.
Leoness typically performs in a duo format (pianist/guitarist) for private and corporate occasions including cocktail functions, VIP and luxury events. Leoness also performs destination weddings across Australia and New Zealand, Indonesia, and Europe and can provide a larger band experience.
