Jess Nolan | TEDxCoconutGrove
Jess Nolan performs three original songs she wrote, and discusses the creative writing process she engaged in for each.
Jess Nolan, a New Jersey native, has always found a home in soulful music. Since she began writing and performing as a pre-teen, she has been influenced by strong female songwriters like Joni Mitchell and Carole King and emulated expressive performers like Alicia Keys and Kimbra. Jess is currently enrolled in her final year at the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami as part of the Bruce Hornsby Creative American Music Program. She competed in the past four Songwriter’s Showcases as part of Festival Miami and won this past year earning her a slot opening for Jorma Kaukonen, founding member of Jefferson Airplane. Her debut EP will be released this coming spring with the help of Brooklyn-based production duo, Noise Club.
