Jessie James - American pop Singer

Jessica Rose "Jessie" James is an American country pop singer and songwriter. Having auditioned for and being rejected by most of the country labels in Nashville, Tennessee at age fifteen, James began working on refining her craft with Karla Wallace of Yellow Dog Records. One of her songs attracted the attention of Mercury Records which offered her a recording contract. She released her debut album, Jessie James, in 2009.





















































James began working on her second album, Sweet American Dreams,in 2010, initially planned to be released in late summer.The album was to be of the same country-pop sound as her debut, with James being given more leeway by Mercury in incorporating country sounds. First single, "Boys in the Summer" released in June, was a minor country success but failed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. Having struggled with accepting her career path as a pop singer, James told her label in the midst of preparations for her album that she did not want to be a pop artist and wanted to record country music. After negotiations, David Massey, the record executive who had brought James to LA Reid, asked Mark Wright from Show Dog-Universal Music, which had facilitated the country release of "Boys in the Summer" in November, to help Mercury/IDJ launch James in the country genre. James then began recording in April 2011. "When You Say My Name" was produced by Wright and released on January 31, 2012. "Military Man" was released on May 22, 2012. She announced her next single, "I Make My Own Sunshine," on her Twitter. After postponing the singles releases, Jessie decided to start the Jackie Blue, a duo created with her friend and songwriter Alyssa Bonagura. They are about to start recording together in August, 2013.
