Sultry, rich and fresh are a few words that fans, reviewers and media have used to describe this Toronto musician's powerhouse voice. A musical force to be reckoned with, Jessica Speziale delivers her version of acoustic pop/rock with the intent of Serena Ryder and the soul of Alicia Keys.

Recently, Jessica won second place in two local Battle of the Bands and her song Turn Me On was song of the Month for May and came in as song #3 in the Song of the Year countdown on Centennial College Radio show, The Original Soundtrack.

ATB offers a critical chemistry of smooth musical transitions, lush harmonies and infectious lead electric guitar riffs, having developed the unique ability to bond immediately with their audiences--both on air and in live performances-- reflecting their commitment to providing the ultimate live music experience to fans.
