Essie Jain is English singer-songwriter born and raised in London.
She comes from a vibrant family of musicians, artists and healers, plays multiple instruments and is classically trained in voice. She has drawn critical acclaim for her work as a singer, writer and performer, and has released four studio albums worldwide;
Her first full-length record, We Made This Ourselves, was released in 2006 and drew comparisons to the British singers Sandy Denny and Vashti Bunyan. In 2011, she started her own label and released Until the Light of Morning, an album of original lullabies for parent and child.
Her third album, All Became Golden, is an audiovisual project and the creative vision of Jain and filmmaker Natalie Johns. It was recorded in front of a live studio audience with a classical orchestra.
Throughout this time making music, Essie has also spent many years on the yoga mat. She decided to pursue her love of the practice and trained to be a teacher, during which she felt a strong calling to work with the healing and empowerment of women, and was especially drawn to teaching the pre-natal practice. As her worlds of yoga and music collided, her two passions joined together, and in January 2015 Jain released To Love, an album of modern chants, movements and meditations, and a journey began to bring these songs of the heart out into the world through healing workshops, retreats and live accompaniment for yoga classes.
She currently lives in New York with her husband and longterm musical collaborator Patrick Glynn.
