Kayjez featured on Into The Dark : Pure on HULU

Woohoo! Kayjez got a great placement on the Hulu horror show Into The Dark : Pure.

Thanks so much to our friends at Position Music for making this happen, and for Troy Welstad and Kevin Penner for being equally important and awesome partners in the music making process of Kayjez.

Check out the Lyric Video below…


The Kayjez self - titled albums is one of my most favorite projects ever! I’m hoping more records will happen now that Kate and I are both back on Kauai… make sure you follow us both on Instagram if you want to keep up with our lives.

Life Update + Family Matinee show @ McCabe's - April 29th

Jess cacti.jpg

Pssst. Show Alert!

It's true... I'm going to change out of Pj's and leave the house.

It's been a long long time since I've had a show, but I'm happy to announce that I'll be performing at McCabe's on Sunday, April 29th. Start time is 10am. I'll be doing a 45 minute intimate / acoustic set consisting of most of the songs from 'Imagination' as well as a collection of my family friendliest songs.

Bring your little ones and join me for my first 'official' event since baby #3 arrived! I'm super excited to have a reason to change out of pajama's and wear mascara again...

Tickets are $10 and available HERE.

Also, I just learned that my cover of 'I don't want to live on the moon' is #1 on Sirius XM Kid's Place Live! What, what, what??

That's all I got for now peeps. Not gonna lie... I'm exhausted. But life is beautiful.





Thank you! We made it to #2!



Wow! Imagination shot up to #2 on the iTunes Children's chart on the day of release. It was so much fun to watch it climb up the charts... I feel truly humbled by all of your support and messages of encouragement regarding the release of my first ever Kid's record!

There have been so many blog features and cool little press tidbits that I would love to share with you about the new record. Also a HUGE shoutout and thank you to Beth Blenz-Clucas from Sugar Mountain PR for her awesome work getting the news out.
