Born Jeannette Porrazzo, Jette began writing songs at the tender age of 10 years old- on the homestead her parents created after moving the entire family from Los Angeles in the early 1980's. She grew up in a rural area cut-off from public transportation, and the busy city life her parents knew - with majestic views of the Sierra Nevada mountains and spent many summers swimming in Lake Tahoe with her four siblings.
Most of her youth she was an active member of 4H, enjoyed shooting guns with her dad and brothers & riding horses in the dry lakes of Washoe Valley. With her mothers encouragement; by age 14 she was singing in her church choir, spending her days in high school (very involved with musical theatre) meanwhile spending her evenings and summers studying voice performance at University Nevada, Reno (singing alongside people twice her age and performing in the symphonic choir).
By age 19 she taught herself to play guitar; was cowriting with local musicians and performing in bars and coffee shops throughout Northern Nevada; including Bucket of Blood Saloon in Virginia City.
She continued her classical voice and theatrical education at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN where she received a full-ride music scholarship and starred in 3 operas. She later went on to Metropolitan State University of Denver and studied photojournalism and broadcast communications for four years.
After more than seven years of college, one semester (15 elective credits) shy of a double bachelors (having to drop out due to a serious medical condition that required her to have a service dog) she persevered- moving to Los Angeles and began working in the film industry as a songwriter, film & television producer and screenwriter.
In the fall of 2012 she came full circle and moved back to Tennessee, making Nashville her home with one goal in mind- to make a name for herself in the music industry. Jette has written over 2,000 songs and counting…
Since moving to Nashville; Jette has been a celebrity judge for the Kentucky Opry, held a music publishing office on Music Row (old fender building), was an integral part of the efforts to save music row, including saving the RCA studio A building from being demolished, worked with Grammy Winner Don Hart, Grammy nominated producer Jeff Sturms (George Strait) and has cowritten with dozens of accomplished songwriters.
In February 2020 she wrapped production for her first studio album Training Wheels, working closely with celebrity voice coach, James Lugo (American Idol) Nathan Smith, engineer (Mainframe Studios). Featuring Jon Conley (Kenny Chesney), Michael Lusk (Loretta Lynn), Dow Tomlin (Wynona Judd), Britt Savage, Dennis Wage, Dave Francis, Dave Demay, Tim Carter (4x grammy winner) as well as a handful of equally great co-writers.
Jette has a near four octave range and writes all genres of music- as a recording artist she is focused primarily on traditional, country-crosssover and classic country using real instruments along with full string arrangements combined with story song lyrics.
A duel genre artist; Jette is also a blue-jazz recording artist and prolific songwriter in jazz & blues - with a style all her own.
In the spring of 2021 she rereleased her live jazz album; LIVE @ Steinway of Nashville: Piano Gallery & Recital Hall, and it is available on all streaming platforms, CD and soon to be duplicated in vinyl.
With everything moving in the right direction for the shining star, she is also back working as a screenwriter and partnered with a production company in Georgia.
Training Wheels is mastered and set to release towards the end of summer 2021, it will be available digitally and the 12" vinyl record is currently on pre-sale.
Jette is currently developing a 52 week, 52 city, 156 show touring music festival -PINK COUNTRY, highlighting women in country music and benefiting Susan G Komen.
A Look Into The Future:
Jette has plans to finish production for a christian pop-classical EP titled HEAVEN that she produced at Nashville's Ocean Way Studios (2015). This upcoming project will showcase her bel canto mezzo vocal stylings- look for a 2021 (late fall/winter) release date as the project production is 90% complete.
She is also writing an opera comedy titled, Pizza, with plans to showcase at TPAC in the near future. The opera is interactive and the Diva will be starring in the opera that highlights italian cuisine-set in a rustic italian kitchen in Palermo where her fathers family orginates. The opera PIZZA will be in both italian and english to celebrate italian-american heritage.
Jette has even more career goals that involve growing her independent record label, JUMPjive Records -along with her music publishing company, Jetty Music Publishing.
"I even have plans for another country record, another 12 tracks- titled RED ROSE", proclaims Jette.
