"Music has always been a part of who I am. My mom says I would hum before I could talk." This innate passion for music has always been a big part of who Jessie Leigh is, but after high school she wasn't sure she was ready to share something so personal with the world. So instead of pursuing music full time, Jessie Leigh went to college to get her teaching degree. During this time she focused her musical energy on gospel music while she learned to lead worship at church. "This time of ‘less intense’ musical schedule really helped me grow musically and hone in on a lot of important skills. It also reaffirmed my passion for music and I realized I needed to do more."
After playing her first live county show in 2014, Jessie Leigh's music career took off. Soon after her first solo show, she began forming her own band and started writing songs.
Rising country recording artist Jessie Leigh has spent the past few years on tour sharing stages with fellow country artists such as Luke Combs, Tanya Tucker, Josh Turner, LoCash, Chris Janson, Joe Nichols, and Craig Morgan -creating memories for fans along the way. Focused on writing relatable songs, Leigh's original music has reached listeners all over the world, and has been streamed over 400k times on Spotify alone. Her fan base is growing rapidly as she spends as much time as possible on the road in her grassroots, independent tour. Jessie says her favorite part of playing music is “the connections I make with incredible people at every show.”
Leigh spent much of 2020 in Nashville writing new songs and strengthening her live show that she’s now ready to showcase in her 2021 Small Town Fight tour.
In her first year on the scene, Jessie Leigh opened for a number of national acts including Chris Janson, Kenny Chesney, Craig Campbell, Josh Gracin, and more. Jessie Leigh and her band also won the 2015 Battle of the Bands, played at the Oregon Jamboree, and began touring in Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho, Montana, and Nevada. While off stage, she began working on her first album of all original songs available NOW!
"I wake up every day feeling incredibly blessed that I get to make music and share it with the world!"
