-Overcoming all obstacles.
The journey of an aspiring artist is naturally littered with road blocks, detours and any other possible hazard. Jessica Shores took this road as an artist but her personal journey had an equal amount of obstacles.
When she was 16, Jessica became paralyzed. She had a surgical procedure called a lamenectomy, and was told that she would not walk again. Daunting enough to her for any regular person let alone an aspiring performer
When she was 18, Jessica was diagnosed with a rare mitochondrial disorder and was told that most people who have it have a life expectancy of approximately 30 years. This disorder primarily affects the brain, nervous system, and muscles, and causes muscle weakness and pain, headaches, seizures, altered consciousness, vision abnormalities, and stroke-like episodes. Jessica would go on to have 15 surgeries due to complications from her condition.
The best artists take setbacks and turn them into fuel, while using these setbacks as ramps to further her dedication she used these as motivation to recover and pursue her craft. Jessica draws inspiration from a myriad of amazing artist: David Bowie, Selena, Chris Cornell, and Gwen Stefani to name a few. The first step of being great is having great taste and an eclectic assortment of influences adds to Jessica Shores’ diverse musical palette.
Her single ‘Monica Lewinsky’ displays her club heavy hip-hop side, with an 808 heavy beat and memorable lyrics like “presidential status- Bill Clinton stlye” this single is still in heavy rotation as the perfect pop tune. Pop isn’t the only avenue Jessica visits, ‘Got The Jack Daniels Blues’ is a soulful departure from her pop singles, steeped in Blues and live instrumentation. Heavy guitar solos and dirty drums are far from the 808s and computerized sounds of her other work. ‘Got The Jack Daniels Blues’ is accompanied by a lush music video showcasing Jessica’s performer side.
More than a musical artist Jessica is a choreographer, model, oil painter and more. Jessica also plays a very popular character on the hit podcast “The Ding Dong Show”, which is part of the DeathSquad podcast network. She has also been interviewed on PlayBoy radio, as well as many other local and national radio shows. She’s also been on the cover of Street Motivation magazine. She is a talent that fans of many genres and areas of art are sure to follow!
