Jess Furman

New York/Los Angeles artist, Jess Furman has been writing songs and performing since the age of 12. Jess has self-released three full-length independent albums, and four EPs, available on Amazon, iTunes, CDBaby and Bandcamp.

As an artist, Jess has played across the US from NY to Atlanta, Nashville and Los Angeles – with appearances at SXSW and Sundance Film Festival. Jess moved out to LA in 2008, pursing both her Artist Career in addition to Songwriting (full songs and instrumental for TV/Film) for other artist and projects. Jess established her own production company that same year, and in 2011 was invited to share the famous Hollywood Sound recording studio space with renowned producers and touring musicians such as Jeff Trott (Sheryl Crow, Wire Train), Joel Shearer (Alanis Morisette, Damien Rice, Sia), Vincent Jones (Sarah McLaughlin) and Victor Indrizzo (Beck, Sheryl Crow).

A few months after moving to Los Angeles, Jess was selected out of hundreds of artists to participate in the highly respected ASCAP Lester Sill songwriter's workshop. Through this experience, Jess met Lynn Grossman (manager for indie queen Ingrid Michaelson) who signed Jess to her TV/Film music placement agency, Secret Road Music Services.

In 2009 the music video for Jess' new single, "Count on Me" aired in NYC's Times Square on June 8th on the giant Clear Channel screens. The new track was the theme song for MySpace's highly rated new game show sensation – BFF. Jess was a "MySpace Music Featured Artist" in April 09.

Since then, Jess has had many more of her songs appear on TV/Film shows, including the current (July 2012) series theme for Lifetime's new show, Life's a Trip with the song "Get Back Up.", and "Night Light" performed by artist Beth Thornley from the film Girl In Progress that was just in theatres. In addition to writing for herself and others, Jess has composed and produced original score to feature and short film. The most recent of which, The Problem of Gravity, was featured on PBS in Fall of 2012.
