Hello! I'm Jess Pillay, an independent musician, creative, and diversity/equity/inclusion (DEI) practitioner from Seattle, Washington. I use songwriting, storytelling, and my complex cultural identity as an Indo-Fijian-American woman to radically envision a kinder and more inclusive world. My musical sound is eclectic as I bring together elements of folk, blues, rock, funk, pop, and jazz; but my goal as an artist is laser-focused: to be defiantly hopeful and uncompromisingly authentic through my art and life. As you listen to my music, I invite you to join me in pursuing authenticity, joy, justice, and liberation for yourself and your community.

Nobody's free until everybody's free.– Fannie Lou Hamer
