Biography

Jessica Carvo is an accomplished singer, songwriter and actor based in New York City.

Jessica was featured on Season 3 of NBC’s “The Sing-Off”, a televised competition between 16 of the country’s best a capella groups, as a member of the University of Delaware Deltones. She sang lead vocals in the Deltones’ rendition of Randy Newman’s “Feels Like Home”. Mr. Newman commented it was the best he had ever heard it sung. Jessica also sang lead vocals on a unique rendition of “It Came Upon A Midnight Clear” found on the holiday album, The Sing-Off: Songs of the Season, released under Sony/Epic records.

In late 2012, Jessica was given the chance to perform in Off-Broadway's "Sleep No More," a rare show that has attracted acts such as Pink, Sara Bareilles and many other big names.

In 2010 Jessica signed with EMI’s Manhattan/Blue Note Records to perform with “Bell’Aria,” a five-person singing group celebrating Italian-American music and culture. The group recorded an album entitled Little Italy and performed on a televised PBS Special Feature, “Bell’Aria: Live from Las Vegas”.

Jessica has performed in several major venues, with highlights including Jimmy Kimmel’s Live Outdoor Stage in Los Angeles, World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, The Venetian Showroom in Las Vegas, the New York Mets’ Citi Field, the Philadelphia 76ers’ Wells Fargo Center and the Philadelphia Phillies’ Citizens Bank Park.
