Jessica Rollins was raised in a very creative and music loving family. Growing up, melodies always resonated and creative projects flourished throughout her home. Her passion for singing continued to grow as she got involved in musical programs at church and school. Her passion for the visual arts grew as well when she began dabbling in set design for local drama departments.
At a young age, she developed an artistic skill visually as well as vocally. In high school she began growing a business clientele for commissioned artwork. From sketches to paintings, her work became well known and highly sought after in her home town and the surrounding communities. Visual art became an outlet for the creative artist within. It also satisfied the insaciable desire to help others better visualize their dreams and make them reality.
As a teenager, she was a member of several local independent bands. In her early twenties, Jessica began to see that songwriting was the perfect avenue to express herself, a way for her to share with others what she had always hidden so tightly inside. Jessica finds it much easier expressing her thoughts & feelings through song – “You can say almost anything in a song. Pretty melodies somehow smooth over the harsh edges of deep secret thoughts, making them easier to share with others.” Her music is real, with every lyric speaking of the raw & honest emotions that encompass all the seasons of life. Her lyrics also speak to truth, a truth that will not only sustain, but also strengthen the life of faith.
What Jessica has learned over the years has become her song, an anthem to encourage those around her that there is a reason for this journey called life.
Everything she creates, both music and art, is somehow laced with hope. Her deepest desire is for others to be encouraged when they recognize the driving force behind her voice and her paint brush: the existence of HOPE.
