This Sultry Singer Launched Her Music Career at Smokes

UPenn Musicians

As part of my “Winning Women” week (and “Music Mondays” series), I recently discovered an emerging Penn alum singer with a sultry, jazzy and deeply emotional voice you should all check out! 

At Penn, after she got back from studying a semester in Spain, Jessica Pomerantz, (C’02, PennPals, 34th Street. Visions President, Spanish Club, French Club, West Philly Tutoring) was pushed up on stage by a friend at Smoke’s and sang Janis Joplin’s “Me and Bobby McGee”.  Since then, Jessica hasn’t looked back and is now singing all over NYC.

Listen to “Rock Bottom” below. Quite a set a pipes on her! The story behind this song came from a break-up Jessica had:

“It’s about hitting ‘rock bottom’ when something scary or sad happens in your life. How you have to open yourself up to the idea of acceptance. You try so many ways to make it right in your eyes, but you have to accept reality. No matter where you are, where you go, …you are alone always.”

Jessica recently finished her demo and is continuing to launch her career and her soon-to-be-released website

"Because of Penntertainment, I got scouted for Nickelodeon. I had such a great time talking with them. I may be a resource for a show on science, travel, geography, gender etc. Thanks for all you do. It really makes a difference."
