Jessica Feathers has been actively creative her entire life. Starting with piano when she was four years old, to performing jazz charts at local venues with her voice, music has always been a creative medium for Jessica (with seven instruments under her belt, no less!). However, she also loves to paint as well as explore new mediums to express herself. She looks forward to working on Heaven Spot to find what the Detroit area has to offer.
