About the Artist: Jessica Mai
Jessica Mai is a professional musician and visual artist from Langley, BC who has a gift for connecting with children. She began her journey as a performer by singing and playing the guitar in pubs and restaurants all over Vancouver. Her original music was always bubbly and catchy. Folks would smile and say they sounded like they could be on a kids show. Jess began working with children in her early 20s as a visual art teacher and absolutely loved it. In 2019, she came up with the idea to try to write songs that were for children. She called herself Penny Pom Pom and took her songs about magic, nature and possums to the stage. Her self-produced debut album, “Believe in Your Magic '' released in August 2020 was nominated for a Canadian Folk Music award the following year. Her team received a Creative BC grant in 2021 to produce a 10-episode webseries for Penny Pom Pom which can be streamed on YouTube and on Sensical TV. The second Penny Pom Pom album “Everything is Magic,” featuring guest artists such as Will’s Jams and Charlotte Diamond, will be released at the end of summer 2022. Jess is also currently in the pre-production stage of writing and illustrating the first Penny Pom Pom story book. Jess is thrilled with how many returning fans attend every live Penny Pom Pom performance. Kids bring her gifts such as flowers they’ve picked themselves or beautiful artwork. The Penny Pom Pom show has created real magic and Jess is so proud of what she has built so far.
