Jesikah Saetara was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. Arts began early with a background in piano, dance and voice, but it was pots and pans that were her first instruments according to her parents.. 'those and the bathtub..' and the violin by age 9. 'I loved the violin till my Mom got a piano, then I had to choose. It was cool though because my babysitter was an accomplished player and taught me stuff when she was over. I ended up taking piano lessons from the same teacher. I took piano lessons for seven years and before I knew it I was in my first band.' By 21 Jesikah was backing up a locally successful and signed artist. 'I was really lucky back then to have known a lot of those people - they were older and smarter than I was and I learned so much in a short amount of time. They knocked the kinks out of me, shaped me up and put me out there.' Jesikah spent 15 yrs. In local rock and dance bands such as 'Jordan's Crossing', 'Gradual Taylor', 'Jealous Bone' and used down time to apprentice at Ligosa, a local recording studio where she honed her own engineering and recording skills by observing some of the industry's best: 'Jerry Lane, Ashley Shepherd and Mark Liggett... now THAT'S a trio..' After a few years on the road in the show band 'Funkytown' Jesikah hung up her dancing shoes and dropped anchor with her own recording studio. Early success in jingles and novelty songs led to the opening of her publishing company White Magic Music with a label to follow a couple of years later. 'No Voice' represents that label's first release. "Inspiration and intuition are my tools... I wanted to merge my interests, consolidate my talents for a unique musical experience. I wanted to balance mind, body and spirit..that place where anything is possible to create something really personal and unique. I know that sounds cliche but it's true. I could care less about sounding conventional or predictable. I enjoy the element of suprise. If I need conventional I'll produce it for someone else. I'm focused on making music in the industry that can bring about change. Inner change that brings about outter change. I want to provoke conversation. Emotion. Connection. Attention. Realisation that we're all responsible. One of the greatest things about being an artist is the creativity aspect. Making something out of nothing. I'm fascinated with the elements. Earth, air, fire, water ...I've spent a long time with each one of them. Everything needed to manipulate or create change. These are strange times we live in. Changeable times and I'm emotional about it. We need to get along. Make positive decisions for the future. Take action now to be who we are. Stop lying to ourselves and others. I had a terrifying childhood being haunted by paranormal experience. I'm an empath which has doomed me. My parents didn't take it seriously so neither did I until my Church kicked me out. Then something weird...like Heaven opened and shaped who I am today. What I am today. Why I am today and gave me a guide. Forced me to face my fears, the unknown and introducing me to mysteries. I've been following truth, reason, source, and the popcorn trail ever since. I have remained open to the possibility of the impossible..never allowing myself to STOP BELIEVING. Not once. Even in the face of opposition and trial, I feel gifted and lucky. I feel blessed and thankful. I've devoted my life to the craft of wisdom, enlightenment and discernment. I study philosophy, kinetic energy, psychometry, alchemy, natural earth magic, healing and divination. I'm a practicing mystic, shaman and clairvoyant. I use all of it to better my life and the lives of those around me.' Jesikah Saetara is a composer, musician, vocalist, performer, producer, publisher, medium, philosopher and magician. She lives in Newport, Kentucky.
