Actor and singer Jessica Fishenfeld hails from Great Neck, NY, and subsequently made New York City her home for several years after earning undergrad and graduate performances degrees at NYU and Manhattan School of Music. She appeared on America's Got Talent Season 17 as a singing aerialist, made a “stand out” (New York Times) off-Broadway debut in Das Barbecü, “triumphed” (NY Observer) in the World Premiere of Stonewall at Jazz at Lincoln Center's Rose Theater, and appeared in the series premiere of Sony Pictures’ Panhandle alongside Luke Kirby and Tiana Okoye.
When the world shut down in 2020, she turned to video producing to continue acting and creating throughout the pandemic. In addition to several original sketches and musical parodies, she produced and performed in Grateful: The Songs of John Bucchino, 20th Anniversary Virtual Concert, “one of the slickest, best-produced virtual concerts to come out of the last ten months” (Broadway World), earning her accolades as “a new favorite” and “a revelation” (Broadway World) alongside Stephen Schwartz, Leslie Odom Jr., Toni Tennille, Ann Hampton Callaway, among other Broadway, cabaret, and screen luminaries. The concert is now available on Streaming Musicals!
During her pandemic hiatus in Savannah, GA, she filmed commercials for Tanqueray Gin alongside Joe Jonas, as well as Enmarket and Parker's Kitchen, and frequently guested with Front Porch Improv, Tybee Post Theater, Cirque Divina, Savannah Theatre, Savannah VOICE Festival, and Mazel Tov Cocktail Comedy.
Jessica's various appearances as a national and international vocalist include Jazz at Lincoln Center, Birdland, New York City Opera, Minton's Playhouse, Carnegie Hall, Circle in the Square, National Sawdust, Newport Music Festival, Palm Beach Opera, Helena Symphony, Xalapa Filarmonía (Mexico), Festival Internacional de Órgano de Morelia (Mexico), Palazzo Vecchio (Italy), St. Barts Music Festival, and more.
She's currently filming a narrative music video for her latest single "The Spy" with Harden Creative and recently released her Debut EP The Nothing Lamp with Crossover Records, as well as an original electro-pop single "Horizon Star" with producer Rituality - all available on music streaming platforms.
In August 2023, Jessica and her multi-talened husband Scott Joiner will make their home in Los Angeles, where they look forward to enjoying a plethora of vegan options and hiking trails.
