About

Who is She

Life, love, and lesbianism are the introspective themes of Toronto songwriter Jessica Spurrell’s work. Drawing inspiration from folk, indie, and rock styles, her music combines warm, eclectic sounds with lyrics full of poetic feeling. There is a certain mystique to Jessica’s artistry, her songs often coloured with off-beat symbolism. Her greatest inspirations lay in the dactylic ambiguity of Mitski, the cosmic ambience of Carmen Villain, and the dark acoustics of Phoebe Bridgers.

Jessica is an accomplished songwriter, with her original song Bury Me as a recipient of the 2021 SOCAN Foundation’s Young Canadian Songwriters Award. The self-produced track dropped in October 2021, listen to it here. Currently, Jessica is a member of the 2022 TD Incubator for Creative Entrepreneurship, learning from celebrated music-industry professionals alongside a cohort of Canada’s most promising emerging artists. Jessica has shared her music in venues across the GTA, most recently as a featured performer at The Free Times Café. 

In alignment with her plans to become a niche internet micro-celebrity, Jessica remains active on social media to connect with her fans and convince the online cool-girls that she IS one of them. Jessica has called many places home, including Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, and Germany. Her pastimes include silly little crafts and calculating how many Richard Sikken references she can include in her music without being considered a blatant plagiarist.
