Jessica Sole is a country musician and songwriter based out of the GTA. Jessica is a multi instrumentalist and is working towards her bachelor degree in music at Humber College, majoring in voice. As well as being a vocal major, she is self taught on guitar, and piano. Jessica is influenced by many great women in country music including: Kacey Musgraves, Maren Morris, Miranda Lambert, Allison Krauss, and the Dixie Chicks. Her influences shine through in her original songs, but do not overpower her own unique musical voice.
Jessica has been performing since she was 10 in the Caledon area, and now sings lead vocals in the band Jessica Sole and The Badlands.
Jessica Sole and The Badlands are a 6 piece country group based out of the GTA. They formed in 2018 after all meeting at Humber College in the Country Ensemble. The name "Jessica Sole and The Badlands" pays homage to the Badlands in Caledon, which is Jessica’s hometown.
The instrumentation in the group consists of lead voice, background vocals, fiddle, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, and drums. Though each member is from a different part of Ontario, they all met while studying music at Humber College, and have been playing country music together for over 2 years now. Being from Canada, they have a current "North of Nashville” sound. Jessica Sole and The Badlands always have a great time performing, and there is always a contagiously good vibe and fun energy on their stage. You can tell they have been friends for years. Jessica Sole and The Badlands cover a wide range of country music from new country, to classics everyone loves, to Canadian country music. Along with covers, they also perform original music.
Jessica is working on her sophomore EP called “Here For The Long Run” which features the band on each track. The EP is set to be released in May 2020, and the band can be found gigging throughout Southern Ontario this spring and summer.
