Essie Watts

Essie Watts is a 5 piece art-pop band formed by Toronto musician Jessica Burgess. Drawing from the worlds of theatre and dance, Essie Watts fuses performance art with commanding vocals and experimental sounds inspired by musical forces like Kate Bush, Prince and Björk. Jessica released her first EP, Shadow Box, as Essie Watts and has since been joined by Mitch Lohmeier (drums), Jordan Omstead (bass), Irwan Poerba (guitar & vocals), and Aaron Rambhajan (keys & guitar) who bring an undeniable energy to the project.
