"Young, talented and destined for stardom from an early age, Jessica took to music when she was just 13 and soon decided it was her destiny. Blind from birth and just 23 years old, she has already been compared to some of the greatest female musicians of our time. She recorded two albums before graduating high school, and is constantly writing new tunes on the piano and perfecting her craft. Jessica recently performed her impassioned set for an intimate audience in Los Angeles—the crowd was blown away. With dedication, talent and a team of industry heavyweights behind her, it’s just a matter of time before her career soars." Read Article at Hits Daily Double
"Callahan is a piano-playing singer-songwriter who occupies the sweet spot between Michelle Branch and Carole King, building punchy full-band arrangements around her piano-driven singer-songwriter tunes.

Jessica Callahan recieved an official nomination from 17th annual LAMA for Pop Female Vocal for her song "City Streets".
This red carpet event will take place November 29th 2007 at Music Box Theature at 6126 Hollywood Blvd in Los Angeles.
The variety in Callahan’s sound is likely due to the heavyweight studio musicians helping her out. Drummers Mario Calire and Matt Chamberlain list The Wallflowers, Ozomotli, Liz Phair, Van Morrison, Elton John and Fiona Apple on their resumes. Furthermore, Grecco Burrato has also played guitar for Pink and Boys II Men. Another guitarist, Tim Pierce, has played with both Seal and Michael Jackson. And on some of these arrangements, keyboardist Patrick (Ashlee Simpson, Melissa Etheridge, Jewell) Warren lends a hand. Obviously this is a professionally produced independent project. Lynne Earls produced, engineered and mixed this disc, but Callahan wrote all the songs. "Jessica Callahan writes brutally honest music."
