About Jessica Marsh
Jessica is a well-rounded professional in the Canadian music scene who has worked independently in various industry roles. She started her career with the Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival in 2009, and The Edmonton Folk Music Festival the following year. In 2011, she began working for Alberta Music, focusing on a number of projects within the association. As the Programs Coordinator for over five years, she was sought after as a mentor and guiding force in many artist's careers.
With Diplomas in Music and Arts & Cultural Management from MacEwan University and with relative work experience, she recognizes the challenges that musicians and industry face in order to develop locally and export globally. Her work over the past 10 years has lead her to launch JAM Music Mgmt (2017), which provides a dynamic approach to artist management and consulting. Her ability to design tailored timelines for specific artists through detailed planning and outside-the-box approaches allows artists to gain a broader understanding of marketing strategies around album releases, career planning and touring using current resources and latest technology. Her commitment to her work, her support for artists and her eagerness to dive in and lend a hand wherever needed are her greatest assets, on or off the stage.
"I worked closely with Jessica, of Jam Management, and sitting down with her for a few sessions was one of the most valuable things our band has ever done. The resources, knowledge, connections, and ideas she had, allowed us to re-shape the way we self-managed the business sides of things for our group, I Am The Mountain. Calm, intelligent, and enjoyable to work with, if you’re ready for the next step as a band I’d recommend talking with Jess first!"
-Colton O'Reilly, I Am The Mountain
"Jessica is knowledgeable, dedicated, and passionate about promoting and facilitating great music. Her support has been invaluable to me in my career, and anyone would be at a huge advantage to have her on their team. She's a pleasure to work with, and a pleasure to know."
- Kimberley MacGregor, Artist
Your passion for helping others paired with your comprehensive understanding of the music business create an invaluable source for working artists like myself. You've provided wonderful feedback on grant applications and development throughout my career and I feel comfortable turning to you for any help that I need, so THANKS!
- Braden Gates, Singer-Songwriter
The artists loved Jessica’s customer service because it was top notch - she displayed exceptional problem solving skills to rectify the toughest of situations throughout the 2013/14 festival. She oversaw between six and twenty bands per night; loading & unloading gear, coordinating set changes, and managing a stage crew. Jessica was a great addition to the stage manager team. I don’t know what I would have done without her.

After our meeting last week I now have a clearer idea of how to improve my web content and press materials. It can be pretty overwhelming being an independent musician and the Alberta music community is fortunate to have such a great one in our corner.
