About Me

My photo
Hello! My name is Jess and I love to do anything creative and artsy in any way. I'm always wanting to learn new methods and improve my skills, musically & artistically. I started blogging initially to share what was going on in my life, but now I am using it as a business tool, as well as sharing with my friends artsy fartsy things I've made and learned! I love to paint and make custom art, if there's anything you need, please let me know, I always love a challenge! I hope you enjoy reading, come back often!!

My faves: Vocalists

I love good music. Especially when I'm totally in love with the vocals. So, I thought I would share my faves in no particular order:

Ray Lamontagne

Ah Ray, Ray, Ray. Is it possible to fall in love with someone's voice? I LOVE the scratchy, soulful sound that he has. Not to mention, I love slow dancing in the living room with my hubby to "Winter Birds".

Ann Wilson

One rockin' woman. I've been a Heart fan for a long time, but when I saw Ann a while back seriously wailing on some Led Zepplin, I was more than impressed. Get it girl!

Hayley Williams

I've personally seen Paramore live, and anyone who can sing ridiculously demanding songs, run around on a huge stage, and not only sing amazingly but IMPROVE vocally throughout the set and not get tired... incredible.


I am a recent fan of Adele. I love her old school, soulful style, her powerful voice, and I love how poised a performer she is for such a young individual. I can get down to some "Turning Tables" while cleaning the house!


I love this man. I'm gonna be honest, I've kinda had a crush on Bono since I was in 7th grade. I just love his whole persona, his voice, his lyricism, the whole deal. He had to be on my list.

Marty Sampson

Marty and I are the same age. I can remember watching him on "Youth Alive" at Fusion when I was a teenager. I love his voice, and even more, I love his heart for worship.

Brooke Fraser-Ligertwood

Probably my second favorite worship leader of all. Her voice is so smooth and clear and just drips with peace. I love her!


Say what you want about her personally, but vocally, P!nk is my girl. She can be soulful, she can rock, she can be soft, you name it, she can do it and do it well. Not to mention the fact that she can do all of these things while hanging upside down and dangling from trapezes. (Check out her performance of "Glitter in the air" from the Grammys) She's almost unreal.

Steve Perry

This isn't just for Mandy's aunt Wanda. I legitimately love me some Steve. I could pick his voice out of a room full of people because of its uniqueness and sheer awesomeness. :)

Celine Dion

Say what you want. I love this chick's voice. She sang with Andrea Bocelli for crying out loud! She's incredible and she's a superstar for one reason: she can freaking sing.

Well, that's the list. It's by no means definitive. There are many more people who I didn't mention, especially old school people like, Sam Cooke, Stevie Wonder, Aretha, and countless others. These are just the ones I've been diggin' on lately I guess. I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed making it! :)
