    Jessica is a very talented vocalist and songwriter! I loved working with her on her single and am really looking forward to continuing the rest of this project together.

    Jess is just PHENOMENAL. Her arrangements, production, vocals, and everything in between is always stunning. We've worked together for almost a decade on multiple projects and she has always surpassed expectations. She's a production guru with a fantastic and natural ear for music of multiple genres who can easily and vastly help you bring your project together from start to finish. She also creates a comfortable and safe space for artists, always rooting you on throughout the process. I highly suggest booking her!

    Jessie and I have sung together on our worship team, and every single time is a delight. It's obvious she is miles above a lot other people (myself included) both musically and in experience ,but her professional manner and sweet heart make it treat and inspiration to work with her. Jessie has a natural ease when singing, but the voice that comes out of her is perfect and fills the spaces in a swirl of gorgeous sound. You can easily get lost in her singing! She has incredible breath control, range, and vocal atonement. Her easy going nature will also make her a delight for anyone to work with.

    We have been so blessed by Jessica's singing for over a decade. Her voice is like a singing bell, with a rich tone that is so clear, vibrant and resonates with one's heart and soul. There is a depth to her sound that carries one away. She has been given the gift of song. We, and a great many others, believe in her and can't wait for her fist full CD! 🎶

    10/10 highly recommend! I have known Jessica since college and she is incredibly talented! I would trust her for any of my musical needs. She listens purposefully and genuinely cares for the people she is near. She will listen to your ideas and dreams for your song and make it come to life!

    I've had the pleasure of working with Jessica on multiple projects and her attention to detail is what sets her apart. Excellent voice, killer production.

Interview with Jessica Hoover

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: Currently finishing my own EP while still working with clients :)

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Oh goodness analog all the way, if accessible. The difference you hear in a very expensive (for good reasons) studio is marvelous. It's so smooth. But with all of the plugins these companies have come out with over the past few years to recreate those sounds, you can get it pretty darn close with digital!

  5. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  6. A: The quality will be excellent of whatever we work on together. I'm too much of a perfectionist for it not to be! :)

  7. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  8. A: I've been songwriting for 15 years, professionally singing for 11 years, and professionally producing for 3+ years. I love it!

  9. Q: How would you describe your style?

  10. A: I love adding little orchestral elements here and there when I can.

  11. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  12. A: Sasha Sloan! Jessie Reyez! Olivia O'Brien! Those ladies tell it like it is in their songwriting, and sweet heavens I love their music.

  13. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  14. A: Noise gate can be your best friend and your worst enemy. Add it to your VoiceOver or vocals on your project and it elevates it, but make sure you're checking every breath or laugh your client makes. A sign of too much noise gate is when those sounds are broken up.

  15. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  16. A: Typically more "acoustic style" types of projects, or electro pop, but really it varies all of the time! I've done all sorts of projects for clients, from music with crazy sampling, to songs about their dog, to Top 40 songs. My weakest genre is Hip-Hop, just because I haven't worked with many artists in that genre.

  17. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  18. A: Vocals are my bread & butter. Where I truly excel is in all aspects of Vocal Production in a clients song- we'll keep working until we have the best vocals all around.

  19. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  20. A: Passion, honesty, rawness. Music that hits you in the feels. I love working on songs based off of either mine or my client's experiences, because chances are there are many other people who can relate. It hits home on another level.

  21. Q: What's your typical work process?

  22. A: Love chatting with my clients first for a free 30 minute call to discuss what their vision is and how we can bring it to life. Then I get to work! Songwriting, laying down instrument tracks, experimenting with plug-ins, recording vocals, comping, fine-tuning, mixing, all while discussing with the client along the way.

  23. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  24. A: She's small but mighty! :) I have a room set up for all of my recording needs, and so far, it works!

  25. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  26. A: Most commonly, I'm producing originals or cover songs for artists, songwriting, and vocal producing.
