As of June 16, 2021, New York State has lifted all COVID-19 related restrictions that apply to a venue of Rockwood’s size. In accordance with these revised guidelines, vaccination records will no longer be checked, nor will social distancing or masks be required, while masks will remain highly recommended for non-vaccinated individuals.
It takes just a moment to be drawn in by Jess King’s vibrant and magnetic energy. Her soul-drenched voice, relatable lyrics and presence captivated even legendary artist Stevie Wonder, who stopped by to applaud one of Jess’ live performances. Jess King has all the qualities of a timeless artist. Based between Paris and New York since 2012, Jess King has been moving hearts and souls at a deep level for years.
As any independent artist knows, getting meaningful music to a wide audience requires many factors to coincide. Jess humbly owns that she’s made “a zillion mistakes” throughout her music career, often disempowering herself in business situations. In 2016, she created and launched TNL 58‘ in Paris, receiving praise from Glamour Magazine as well as locals for the workout’s ability to uplift and inspire positivity. However, Jess King’s primary purpose and passion is creating and performing music and this is 100% her main focus now.
In July 2020, she wrote and released “Time’s Up”, a call-to-action song inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement. Later in 2020, she released “Courage to Believe” and “After the Rain”. Jess King’s superpower as an artist is to connect with listeners at a deep and healing level. In a Covid-19 era and beyond, Jess King’s music, vibe and presence seem all the more important.
