What is your artist name?

Jes Stretton

How would you describe what you do?

I am a passionate singer/songwriter and performer.

How long have you being performing/working?

I have been performing since I was very young, but I started gigging when I was about 14 years old, and have continued to do so ever since.

What has been the highlight of your career to date?

One of the best performances I have ever done was at the Manchester Academy back in October when I supported Heather Peace, I got such an amazing response from her fans. It was an amazing experience.

Have you worked/performed for/with anyone famous?

I have done a few things over the years, when I was 12, I was actually on Stars In Their Eyes (when it was good) and before you ask, you probably won't know who I was!! I was also entered into the Junior Eurovision song contest when I was 15 with an original song of mine, I didn't win though! 

More recently, I got asked to write in Gracieland Studios, where the likes of the Bee Gees, Dionne Warwick and Gary Barlow have recorded.

If you could perform/work with anyone, who would it be?

Ooo, that is such a hard question, as I would love to work with so many artists, but I have to say I would love to write with an american artist called Emily King, she inspires me so much with her music... Go and check her out!!

What is your guilty pleasure?

SPICE GIRLS <3 Although I wouldn't say I feel guilty about it, I still just love them so much! Haha!!

Tell us one secret about yourself.

I am totally obsessed with the bingo game 'Zingy' 

Jes StrettonHow and why did you get into this profession?

I grew up with family loving music, always surrounded by it, and my Dad saw that I adored music and that there was something there and did everything he could to help me learn all about music and writing.

When you're not working what do you like to do to chill out?

I love going to the seaside, ice cream and 2ps machines!!!!
