Jess Glynne – British singer and songwriter
Jess Glynne is the singer’s real name, which she decided not to change for her music career. Initially, the last name sounded like Goldstein but Jess’s grandfather decided to change it to Glynne. The full name “Jessica” was shortened to “Jess”. The artist was born in the northern part of London on 20 October 1989. Her father was a real estate engine. Her mom worked in the music industry.
Jess was interested in music since childhood. When she was 15, Glynne decided to audition for the popular music talent show X-Factor. However, she never made it into the show due to some disagreements with the producers. This incident didn’t stop the singer from following her dream. She combined her music studies with school and work. For some time, Glynne worked in a hair salon, clothing store, and a fitness center.
Glynne loved to travel and had the money to do it. Before her career took off, she visited many countries. After taking breaks, the young woman vigorously wrote lyrics. She also gained some experience working in the recording studio. It took Jessica four years to finally become visible in the competitive music industry.
