Gessica Rockwell is one of those young bright pop recording artist.
This 16 year old native of Wentzville, Mo. (a suburban county 20 miles west of St. Louis, Mo.) has been singing, dancing and acting since she was four and has been approaching her craft like a disciplined, savvy entertainment veteran for years.
Performing at countless shows over the last few years, whether it was the talent shows at Timberland High School or Clear Channels 107.7 sponsored Footloose Sing and Dance Contest (resulting in a top 10 finish amongst hundreds of contestants) it was the next chance meeting that changed the course of Gessicas burgeoning career.
Gessica was asked to perform on numerous occasions on St. Louis local TV network KMOV Channel 4s show Junior Stars. The exposure from this local TV show resulted in Gessica being invited to join the Teen Swag Tour in the summers of 2008, 2009 and 2010. (Teen Swag USA is a non for profit youth organization that promotes, health and well being for all youth between the ages 8-20 years of age..www.teenswagusa.com)
Sonny Metcalf, one of the executive board members of WBMS for Kids was totally intrigued by Gessica at one of her performances. He loved her energy on and off stage. He loved her look and her image and really wanted to assist her in developing her career. But, even after all the years of performing, he knew she needed polishingSo he introduced her and her family to UniMind Music Group LLP (a music production/ artist development company) .
Yes, I play alot at Cicero's. Yes I really do like performing on stage infront of a crowd. One of my very special moments is when I get to pull a few of the litte fans up on stage with me to sing one of my songs, this was really fun for me and for them.
Gessica was musically influenced by Hannah Montana, Kelly Clarkson and Brittney Spears like a lot of other young girls her age at that timeBut, the more she developed the more she began to find her stride and unique style.
Right now I just use a mic that is offered to me at the shows. I am learning the electric guitar I also use my instrumental cd
