Brisbane born and bred, Jessica grew up absorbed in music, with her dad a real hard AC/DC fan, but it was her mum’s music collection of Dixie Chicks and Keith Urban that she fell in love with. Observing her idols and their song-writing skills, Jessica developed a passion for the craft and has been working hard to develop her own style while learning via co-writing.
Jessica’s biggest influence. Her mother. Jessica’s Mother was a gigging musician up until Jess was five years old. She would push her mum to invite her on stage for a song and so it was at the age of four that Odgers received her first microphone and stand when she became smitten with performing. Standing with her microphone and in her blue sparkly dress singing along to Dixie Chicks and Shania Twain was how it all began. Fast forward 14 years and Jessica’s passion for country music and performance still shines bright. She is still pushing people to invite her on stage. In late 2016 with a nudge and a home-made sign from mum, Keith Urban invited Jessica on stage at his Brisbane show on the Ripcord Tour for a special performance of his smash hit ‘Somewhere In My Car”. Indeed a moment that Odgers will treasure forever.
