An internationally celebrated artist, Jess Moskaluke continues to break barriers in the country music world with her big voice, pop-infused hooks and sonic versatility.
The 2018 Canadian Country Music Award winner for “Album of the Year”, Jess was the first Canadian female country artist since her childhood idol Shania Twain to achieve Canadian Recording Industry Association (CRIA) Platinum single status with “Cheap Wine and Cigarettes”, and has since gone on to earn CRIA Gold certifications for “Take Me Home” and “Kiss Me Quiet” along with a nod for her feature on Paul Brandt’s “I’m An Open Road”. She was also the first Canadian female country artist since 2008 to have a song in the Top 3 with the upbeat track “Drive Me Away” and has notched another six Top 10 hits in addition to that with “Kiss Me Quiet”, “Take Me Home”, “Camouflage”, “Used”, “Save Some of that Whiskey” and her first ever number one at Canadian country radio “Country Girls”.
A multiple JUNO Award nominee and the 2017 JUNO Award winner for Country Album of the Year, Jess is also a three-time consecutive Canadian Country Music Association recipient for “Female Artist of the Year” – the first resident of Saskatchewan in the history of the awards to achieve this title – a 2017 SOCAN Award winner, and in the summer of 2017 was presented with five SCMA Awards including “Fan’s Choice Entertainer of the Year”.
Jess’s 2017 EP “Past The Past” continued to highlight her abilities as a vocalist, with new music fueled with emotive sensibilities. Collaborating with Grammy nominated producer/songwriter Corey Crowder (Chris Young, Cassadee Pope, Eric Paslay), the EP’s seven tracks came alive with textured vocals and progressive storytelling. Lending themselves to memorable live performances, the new songs saw Moskaluke earn coveted spots on the road with Darius Rucker and Jon Pardi, a headlining performance at the 2017 Boots and Hearts music festival in addition to high profile interviews and performances including CBC q with Tom Power (2x)
and a 60-minute home movie with CMT/Corus to name a few. In 2019 she teamed up with Paul Brandt, High Valley and Hunter Brothers for the “Journey Tour”, travelling from coast to coast for 22 dates across Canada.
With an ever-growing fan base, Jess has amassed over 32 million views on YouTube and over 40 million combined streams of her songs. Her 2018 debut holiday album “A Small Town Christmas” went on to garner a nomination for the JUNO Award for “Country Album of the Year”, and alone has achieved nearly 2 million combined streams.
Jess was invited to play at Australia’s C2C Music Festival, and was asked to take part in CMC’s “Songs and Stories” series, performing six songs for a one-hour special. Moskaluke took 2020 by storm with “Country Girls” topping the charts at Canadian country radio, and her follow-up single “Halfway Home” also landed in the Top 5 at Australian Country radio. She was named Country Artist of The Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards.
In 2021, Jess released the album “The Demos”. It includes “Leave Each Other Alone” which sees Jess team up with fellow country singer Travis Collins.
