“…a fresh take on 70s disco and filtered house with a dash of funk… elevated by Ruiz's smoky, melancholic voice.”
– Guardian UK
“[front woman Nomi Ruiz] could be the most alluring pop diva since Aaliyah.”
–San Francisco Bay Guardian

“…pop music with a disco feel and a real soulful vibe as well. We love it!”
“ …one of electronic music's most exquisite practitioners.”
– Philadelphia Inquirer
e debut album from Jessica 6 is released today!
Available digitally and on CD. Also available is a limited (500) Enhanced CD with an exclusive bonus track. 2LP and 12" vinyl releases to follow...
Comprised of former members of Hercules and Love Affair, New York City’s Jessica 6 has been commanding dance floors for years, globetrotting from London to Miami, San Francisco to Santiago, Bergen to Belgrade, seducing the dancing, sweaty masses with an electrifying blend of disco, soul and R&B. In celebration of their debut album, See The Light (coming June 7 on Peacefrog) the band hits the road once again with their hypnotic live show, hitting NYC and Philadelphia, before heading West for a run that includes a stop at San Francisco’s Gay Pride stage.
See The Light opens with a classic-in-waiting, the behemoth of a single, “White Horse”, that forces you to move like a witch doctor would. “Champagne Bubbles” is the kind of gritty R&B that isn’t afraid to be as angry as it is melancholic, its piano flourishes punctuated with a heavy kick and snare. “Prisoner Of Love,” which bridges electro and freestyle, featuring a soaring vocal melody that finds Nomi and guest vocalist Antony weaving their voices around each other to a stunning effect. For a taste of what you'll hear on tour, download the "Prisoner of Love" MP3 here and we encourage you to post and share.
