Jessica de Boer belongs to the newest generation Dutch jazzsingers. She stands out because of her disarming and narrative style. During her studies at Utrecht Conservatory - from which she graduated in 2019 with honors - she fell in love with the rich harmonies and freedom of jazz. Soon she started writing her own compositions; light, colorful jazz with flexible melody-lines and a hint of world music. Inspired by nature, people, sounds and faith, she is not afraid to tell her story. In a disarming way, her lyrics express important theme's, recognizable for everyone.
Jessica is currently working on her debut-album.
Jessica's musical career has led her to perform at a variety of places, including North Sea Jazz Festival and Middelheim Jazz (with Matthew Herbert Brexit Bigband Choir), and Tivoli de Helling.

"It has been a pleasure working with Jessica de Boer, a very talented young lady who writes crafty and intelligent songs...
...I think Jessica is a great new addition to the musical landscape in the Netherlands: original, involved with the world we live in, big hearted with great craftsmanship and a singing talent to match."
