Jessie Gordon: Swingin' Jazzin' Bluesin'
Jessie Gordon is a 15 time Fringe World Music and Cabaret award winning singer, musician and teacher with a passion for jazz, blues and roots music. Singing since she was 15 years old, Jessie has fronted everything from jazz duos to big bands, and has toured extensively through Europe, Asia and Australia.

This talented and versatile performer knows how to build rapport with a crowd, an ability that has earned her a solid reputation and loyal following internationally.

She has released five albums, including her 2018 album of original songs, entitled "A Work of Friction”. This year’s release, “Best Friends” is a compilation of jazz and original acoustic music recorded with long-time collaborator Mark Turner.

No stranger to the darker side of jazz, Jessie combines her love of blues, swing and early jazz music in an evening not to be missed. There are songs for the swooning moonshiners, those inclined to wine, those frisky for whisky and some odes to our favourite friends, those tenders of the bar. In the dark, dingy corners and smokey recesses of the Golden Era of Swing, there are songs for every appetite, beautiful harmonies for your soul and heart aching melodies to ease your troubles.

“Gordon’s vocals are exquisite, ranging from breathy and soft to hearty and raspy, changing with each style of song. Her musical expertise, rhythm and timing are mesmerising.”
- Laura Keenan, Fringe Feed


"Gordon has once again shown how immensely talented she really is, her understanding of Jazz in all its forms, her creativity and multi faceted ability to make music with a variety of instruments, or no instruments, a powerful and exquisite voice with a range that is unmatched, and an ability to command the crowd's attention and participation."
- Amanda Lancaster, Fourth Wall Media
