Jessica Townsend

Jessica TownsendJessica Townsend is a gifted singer who has already achieved much. Some of the highlights include singing the national anthem at numerous events such as Olympic Torch Ceremony at celebrations for the Gold Medallist women’s water polo team, World Title and international boxing matches at the Brisbane Convention Centre, the Penny Silks Memorial Surf Competition and the Fisher Community Australia Day Awards, where she was also awarded a Young Achiever’s Award, for musical talents and contribution to community events. In 2002 Jessica also won Best Actress in a Musical at the Sunshine Coast Theatre Alliance’s Star Awards for playing Eponine in Les Miserables. Jessica has also performed at many high profile corporate and radio station events as lead singer in a trio called Flirt.

Flirt began working with award-winning producer Duncan Wood but as other members fell away, Duncan believed Jessica had what it took to forge a successful solo career and encouraged Jessica to cultivate her songwriting skills. Jessica began co-writing with him and this collaboration has created a style and sound that is completely unique.

After a sabbatical in the UK, Jessica is now home in Australia and back in the studio with Duncan. Her debut album “Photograph” is due for release later in 2012 and her first single “Adelaide Road” proved popular on country radio and iTunes with her second single “Australia” being released in December 2011. Highlights of 2011 included performing seven shows with label-mates Dane Sharp, Caroline Taylor-Knight and Duncan Wood and the Touchwood band at the Tamworth Country Music Festival for the second year running and at the Logan Unites 4 Lockyer Benefit Event, and Urban Country Music Festival. Jessica will be back at Tamworth in 2012 with many more shows to come. She will also be working on several film clips in the coming months. Jessica is a stunning talent and one to watch.
