Jess is from the northern suburbs of Melbourne, and currently plays for her band Ramona Sky. She has always had a passion for music from a very young age, starting off with piano and singing lessons from

3 years old and then realised the drum kit was

for her at the age of 10.

 

Since then, she joined a number of different bands throughout high school playing both alternative

rock and funk, which guided her influences of

Tower Of Power, Snarky Puppy, Arctic Monkeys,

Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Strokes,

just to name a few.

Growing up, Jess was mentored by Daniel Luttick and is now mentored by Daniel Hanson from Ball Park Music. 

 

In Ramona Sky, Jess is the drummer, backing vocalist and songwriter for the band. Ramona Sky is set to release their debut EP in early 2022, after just releasing their debut single 'Think You're Mine' in Feb. The band have played many live gigs around Melbourne's most iconic music venues, and are known for their funky and powerful repertoire.

 

In the past, Jess played drums for bands Kid Sidney, and Empire Five, in which she performed at Queenscliff Music Festival, opened for Claire Bowditch and gained radio play on Triple M. She also currently plays ukulele/sings backing vocals in her ukulele trio Luna The Moon.
