ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This debut album is a collection of songs that reflect a journey of passionate honesty. Letting go of that which holds oneself back and always pursuing a fresh start. It speaks about living a life that is meaningful and encourages the continuation of chasing the unattainable. It is an album about calming strength, the journey of self-discovery, always seeking truth and yearning for something more.
Jessica Benini is a Canadian British Columbian grown singer songwriter, beginning her journey of playing guitar at age 9. She is a self-taught musician who learned how to play by observing others and practicing their technique.
Jessica is a graduate of Rosebud School of the Arts in Rosebud Alberta where she trained as an actor with the intention to pursue a career in Theatre and Film. She started writing music in her first year of college, only sharing it with close friends. Over the next few years she had the opportunity to sing and play guitar for Rosebud Theatre, which enabled her to learn how to play a variety of different styles and genres of music. After gaining confidence as a performer she then began to share her own songs. She then went on to play at the Medicine Hat Folk Festival and has performed twice at 15 minutes of Fame, Rosebud’s music festival.
In 2007 Jessica moved to Tofino where she began incorporating harmonica into her songs. She performed in restaurants, resorts, and festivals. A year later she settled in Victoria where she is currently pursuing her passion for music. In the summer of 2010 she was able to perform twice on Long Beach Radio CHMZFM 90.1 and Victoria’s Campus and Community Station CFUV 101.9 FM. Jessica also entered the Vancouver Island Songwriting Contest for the Islands Folk Festival and came in 3rd. Currently she has been bouncing back and forth between Vancouver and Victoria performing her heart out. She also spends most of her time composing music as well as teaching guitar lessons and the art of songwriting.
Jessica Benini is a transparent artist and observing soul that comes alive when she plays her heart out, and has found that songwriting is a way of being able to express her inner thoughts. She loves the Island life how gently everything moves and breathes. Being a musician on Vancouver Island, Jessica feels understood, free, playful and inspired. Her main goal and practice in life is to play publicly without apology.
