Gentle Party is an avant chamber pop ensemble that pioneers a unique, expansive sound distinct to the quartet’s West Coast roots.  The hauntingly evocative voice of Jessicka rests on a bed of luscious strings from  Meredith Bates (violin), Shanto Acharia (cello) and Elisa Thorn (harp).  The music conjures images of pandemonium and playfulness contrasted with stark heartbreak.

Their debut album, Jouska, was recorded with award winning producer Chris Gestrin with the support of the Canada Arts Council.
