Teacher Feature #1


Jess Lynne Rempel

Background + Bands:

Today’s teacher feature is our multi-talented, unparalleled vocal teacher, Jess Rempel.  She is a Humber graduate who continues to make waves all over the Toronto music scene. Some would think she’s spreading herself thin with all the bands that she’s in but Jess wouldn’t have it any other way.  Currently on hiatus, The Sky Valley Band is a blend of country and soul. Ordinarily I wouldn’t put these two genres together, but listening to Jess’ smooth vocals changed my mind.

What she’s up to now:

Additionally, you can find Jess singing backup vocals for the funky KC Roberts and the Live Revolution, featuring other Beyond the Beat teachers, Jacob Aylward and Sean Dennis.  There’s more, Jess also lends her unreal abilities to the vocal trio, Major Jam and just recently she joined Tasty Trio with fellow Beyond the Beat violin instructor, Andrew Chang.

That being said, she’s taking a break from performing until after she gets married in July!
