Jessi Harvey Jessi Harvey, also known by George, is a Montana-born, Seattle-based composer, with degrees from Bryn Mawr College and University of New Mexico. Her work is a synthesis of musical influences and draws from philosophy, literature, nature, and various aspects of the sciences.
Jessi’s work focuses on collaboration with other artists as well as integrating creation with social and environmental causes. As a Teaching Artist with the Seattle Symphony, she has been a composer and arranger for the Lullaby Project and co-facilitated a collaborative composition project with students from Path With Art. In April 2018, she curated THINGS THAT BREAK, a multi-disciplinary concert experience with collaborators Becky Joy Aitken, animator, Sonya Harris, storyteller and photographer, and Aimee Hong, performance artist, all creating works based on the theme of breaking. She was commissioned by Karin Stevens Dance in 2019 to create music for Sea Change Within Us, a project based on water, climate change, and our relationship with them. Seattle Mag has described her music as “full of surprises and consistently attention holding.”
