– Guardian UK
“[front woman Nomi Ruiz] could be the most alluring pop diva since Aaliyah.”

“…pop music with a disco feel and a real soulful vibe as well. We love it!”
New York City’s Jessica 6 release their debut album, See The Light, today on Peacefrog Records! In celebration, the band has released a brand new b-side MP3 called “East West Funk”. Described by RCRD LBL as “bongos, bass, and fly-ass disco fusion” the song is perfect for your next summertime party soundtrack.
Check out the “East West Funk” MP3 HERE.
For an early listen of the full album, check out See The Light streaming in its entirety on AOL Spinner today!
See The Light opens with a classic-in-waiting, the behemoth of a single, “White Horse”, that forces you to move like a witch doctor would. “Champagne Bubbles” is the kind of gritty R&B that isn’t afraid to be as angry as it is melancholic, its piano flourishes punctuated with a heavy kick and snare. “Prisoner Of Love,” which bridges electro and freestyle, featuring a soaring vocal melody that finds Nomi and guest vocalist Antony weaving their voices around each other to a stunning effect.
Jessica 6 has been commanding dance floors for years, globetrotting from London to Miami, San Francisco to Santiago, Bergen to Belgrade, seduce the dancing, sweaty masses with an electrifying blend of disco, soul and R&B. In celebration of their debut release, the band hits the road once again with their hypnotic live show, kicking off with an album release show in NYC, then hitting Philadelphia before heading West for a run that includes a stop at San Francisco’s Gay Pride stage.
