Jessica Simone

Acoustic Folk / Indie


Jessica Simone is a dynamic performer living in the Monterey Bay area, a musician who plays music from many genres, all having “roots” music and strong vocals as the common thread ~ Americana, Rhythm & Blues, Folk Rock, Indie Rock, Classic Rock, Oldies, and soulful Blues tunes.

Backing herself on guitar, energy is high whether it is a ballad or a rocker ~ each song is delivered with passion, and Jessica often welcomes musicians in the crowd to sit in as guest performers. The audience may even be engaged with an ‘interactive’ tune if they are willing!

The repertoire is tailored to the audience and the event, and Jessica is available both as a soloist or with her band. ‘SIDESTEP’ delivers a polished sound playing oldies, blues, country rock classics. Whether playing in restaurants, nightclubs, weddings, private parties or corporate events, a good time is guaranteed for all!

After playing professionally for many years in her home state of New York, Jessica played throughout the eastern United States, from Portland, Maine, to Tampa, Florida, then played in a tribute band for 5 years in Nashville, Tennessee,

She is now a ten year resident of California, continuing her passion for performance.
