It’s easy to forget how good female singers are at being pretty.
It’s not just that they look like their male counterparts.
They sing with a different kind of emotion, they’re less like models and more like real people.
And that’s not to mention how much they care about their audience and what they do for the community.
The fact is, the biggest influence on what female singers achieve as well as what they’re known for is their female fanbase.
A study from 2014 showed that there was a 70% gap in female interest in female singers between men and women.
So it’s no surprise that a lot of young female singers in the UK have gravitated towards singing in female-specific genres, with a strong focus on the vocal range.
In fact, the first female-sourced hit from a female singer was The Bends’ Belly.
What makes this the best is that it’s very different to what’s going on in the male-dominated world.
“It’s an entirely different dynamic of female voices,” says Jessi.
“There are so many different vocal styles, and the diversity is so incredible.
I feel like there’s this amazing opportunity here, in a genre where there’s so much pressure to sound like a male, to look like a dude.”
The first time I met Jessi, she was a 16-year-old from the north of England.
“I wanted to be a singer,” she told me.
“Then I just didn’t know how.
And then I found the Hillsong Foundation.
And I just wanted to play my own music.”
She was the first one to get the chance, and now she’s a regular at the Edinburgh Festival.
Jessi is one of the few female singers to have a dedicated website.
It was only after her foundation raised enough money to pay for a microphone that she was able to make a solo album.
“They’ve done so much for young singers,” she says.
“For me, that was the biggest thing, because I didn’t have any support.
I had to do it myself.
That was the main thing.”
Jessi’s website is full of great info on everything from the music to the singing, including some of the most popular male-singer songs.
It has a great mix of photos and videos, and she regularly updates the website with new songs.
But there’s one thing that Jessi’s site does have in common with many of the other female-focused websites out there, and that’s the fact that it is accessible to a large audience.
Jessa’s fans are all over the country.
The majority of her fans live in Scotland, England, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Northern Ireland is the UK.
And there’s an even larger audience in the US, Canada, and Australia.
“We get messages from every continent,” she explains.
“The biggest thing for us is the internet, which means you can share songs online.
We also get messages on Twitter.
You can email your favourite song.
You don’t have to spend a lot to get a response.
We also get the messages on Facebook.
I can reach people from all over.”
Jessi isn’t a super vocalist, but she does have a great ability to write songs that go beyond the standard “dance”-type of music.
Her vocals range from the softer, pop-friendly to the more traditional country and country-rock-type tunes.
She’s not the only one, either.
“Some people like the country-pop kind of vocals,” she laughs.
“But there are many other people out there.
They love the country singer, too.
It can be the same singer, but with a more unique voice.
They just can’t get enough of it.”
Jessi says she has her fair share of female fans.
“That’s a big thing.
I’ve had a few people that come to the shows that are like, ‘I want to sing in your band!’
But it’s never been about the girl who’s the singer.
It comes from the fan.”
It’s something Jessi sees as very empowering, but there’s a certain amount of risk involved.
“When you have a big, huge fanbase, you’re a huge risk.
There’s no way that’s going to work out.
The biggest risks come with making a solo career, which Jessi admits she’s not too comfortable with. “
You can’t just go and just do it because that’s what everybody else is doing.”

“No, I don’t think I’m a singer.
I think I could be a guitarist, but I just want to make music that I’m passionate about,” she tells me.
She also has her fears.
“Sometimes it feels like the only way to be really
