Meet singer, songwriter & professional flowy dress twirler:
Jess Irvine is the heart-over-head folk-pop singer-songwriter your playlist has been missing on long drives, weekend picnics, Tuesday brunches and every day in between. And yet, she feels familiar somehow.
Based in Brisbane’s north, Jess has spent the last seven years as lead singer, tambourinist and professional flowy-dress-twirler for bands The Counterfeit Umbrellas and The Lighthearts. With The Lighthearts, she’s played the Caloundra Music Festival and Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers, received commercial radio airplay and made national television appearances.
Jess now regularly gigs around South East Queensland, providing entertainment for well-known venues, weddings, functions and more. With a wide range of cover repertoire that she puts on her own unique, soulful spin on; she is a much-loved favourite amongst the audiences she performs for.
On stage, Jess’ sunbeam smile meets her rich, enchanting vocal and unmistakable honesty to produce a show which leaves every person in the room feeling moved, understood and loved. She has felt the calling to use her voice to create connection since she was too small to hesitate and hasn’t missed a single opportunity to sing, dance or perform since. In addition to beginning her solo music project, this year Jess also stepped into the role of host of ‘Divine by Jess Irvine’, a podcast for creatives, dreamers and spiritual seekers.
Combining influence from folk legends James Taylor, Carole King and Joni Mitchell with modern-day muses Maggie Rogers, Clare Bowen and The Lumineers, Jess’ original songs bottle her life lessons into heartfelt mantras for the modern-day dreamer.
