Janice and Sonia Lee, also known as “Jayesslee,” are 24-year old twin sisters, born and raised in Sydney, Australia. Always having a creative flare, they explored the field of arts and design straight out of high school, but it did not take long for them to realise their greatest passion was in music.
Of the two, Sonia is a self-taught guitarist, picking up the guitar for the first time in August 2007. They began singing and songwriting together, uploading their first video on YouTube in May 2008. Since then, they have caught the interest of 226,000 subscribers and 34 million total upload views. Their cover of “Officially Missing You” was their hit video with over 8 million views worldwide. By 2010, they were receiving invitations to perform interstate and abroad, holding their first headliner concert in Los Angeles, May 2010. They have performed live on radio stations and appeared on national television in China.
Janice and Sonia are inspired to sing and write about their personal experiences, or the stories of those who have impacted their lives. They aspire to be artists who send out a strong message of hope and freedom through their music.
