Born Jeannette Porrazzo, Jette began writing songs at the tender age of 10 years old. She grew up in a rural area 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 all throughout Northern Nevada; including Bucket of Blood Saloon in Virginia City.
She continued her classical voice and acting 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.
After more than seven years of college, one semester (15 electives) shy of a double bacholors (having to drop out due to a serious neurological disablity) she moved to Los Angeles and began working in the film industry as a songwriter, movie 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…
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, Michael Lusk, Dow Tomlin, Britt Savage, Dennis Wage, Dave Francis as well as a handful of 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. She is also a jazz recording artist and writer, and has plans to finish production of a christian pop-classical EP titled HEAVEN that she produced at Ocean Way Studios in 2015. This upcoming project will showcase her bel canto mezzo vocal stylings- look for a 2021 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.
