Jessica Benini is a Victoria based singer songwriter, guitarist and foot stomping harmonica player. Jessica engages the audience with a heartfelt performance showcasing songs about adventure, life's simple treasures and taking the road less travelled. Her musical style is a collage of folk, roots, blues, gospel and country, blended with her own salt-water sound.

Jessica was nominated for Vocal Performance of the Year at the 2014 Vancouver Island Music Awards and Best Live Act in 2012. She came in 3rd at the 2010 Islands Folk Festival songwriting competition and happily returned in 2011, 2012 & 2015 as a performer. She has released two albums, Express Yourself (2010) and No Regrets (2014). In June 2015 Jessica was featured at Broadway Sessions in Times Square, as well as showcased for the songwriter sessions at the Bitter End, in NYC.

Joining the Jessica Benini Collective on stage will be the wonderful musicianship of Whitey Somers (Nanaimo, BC) on mandolin and lead guitar, Moritz Behm (Sidney, BC) on mandolin and fiddle, and Todd Sacerty (Nanaimo, BC) accompanying on bass.
