Answer," the first song from Jessica Chaz’s upcoming EP Dreamin' stays with you long after you’ve heard it. From Jessica’s upbeat, soulful vocals delivered with contagious grit and determination to lyrics that will embed themselves in listeners minds, "Answer" is the perfect appetizer for what’s to come.

In "Answer," Jessica delivers a heartwarming story of searching. The song describes a feeling of despair that so many feel when dreams are on the line, when there is no visible answer in sight, and no physical help to achieve them. It's a story of believing in oneself, the journey of finding the strength to believe regardless of circumstances. Jessica co-produced the track with songwriter Vanessa Moodley, who also sang backing vocals. Greg Bedford was the mixing engineer. The track was recorded at The Audio Suite in Durban, South Africa and Demitone Studios in Vancouver, Canada.

Dynamite singer-songwriter, Jessica Chaz is a performing artist with a unique vocal talent. A Vancouver based artist who grew up in Durban, South Africa, Jessica’s passion for music started out by singing harmonies and bass lines to TV ads as a child. Jessica faced a few curveballs which brought her to the moment when she realized that music was part of her destiny. She began to feel an increasing resolve that she was born to be a musician, an artist who was meant to touch people’s lives through her music. She explains, "No matter what was going on in my life, singing was the one thing I could do, so I fell into it and stayed there."

With determination and a voice that stays with you long after you've heard it, the newcomer delivers a heart-warming story of searching with her new single “Answer”, and looks forward to the release of her debut EP Dreamin’ in Summer 2018.
