Jess is a Singer Songstress based in Austin, originally from Richmond, Virginia. After paying her dues in the New York club scene as the frontwoman for Indie Rock band, Dead Copycats, she recorded her first solo project -- an album of 7 indie pop/rock songs -- now available on itunes and amazon. She's currently performing all over Texas and surrounding states, and working on material for a new album.

A true water nymph, Jess has spent about a quarter of her existence in some form of H20, swimming, surfing, and mermaiding, and finds the water to be a strong source of inspiration for her writing and general sanity.

Jess Braun's voice has been compared to the sounds of Fiona Apple, Janis Joplin, Neko Case, and Joss Stone.

Her influences include (but are certainly not limited to) Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin, Ray Charles, Fiona Apple, Ani DiFranco, Joni Mitchell, Joan Osborne, Eryka Badu, Jim Croce, and Elvis Presley.


“Jessica Braun is a vocal powerhouse.  She has the sort of voice that can rise above the maelstrom of guitar, bass, and drums in the noisiest club and be heard.” (Wildy’s World)

“Jessica is dripping with sexy overtones and feeling on every song” (Keith “MuzikMan” Hannaleck, MuzikReviews)

“…the mistress of sultry suggestion that is Jessica Braun howls “I’ve got soul” and soul she has.  Lungs, lips and lyrics combine to give our crossover of The Long Blonde’s Kate Jackson and a banshee the command to control a collection of songs that imply passion, heart, dedication, and togetherness…”  (Jack Murray, Glasswerk National)
