Well-known singer and Pocatello native Jessica E. Jones, also know as her alter-ego Ivywild, recently had her single “Willing to Find Out” chosen as an Official Selection at the London Music Video Awards.

BOISE — From the back of her Four Winds Class C, on a fold-down desk her husband hand-crafted, Jessica E. Jones tinkered with creating tracks on her laptop’s GarageBand. It was the first time the opera singer and Grammy Award winner also known as Ivywild had dabbled in the app program that allows anyone — from music veteran to novice — to create tracks, and it was a much welcome outlet for the singer in the face of the pandemic.

Jones, a Pocatello native and 2005 Highland High School graduate who traveled the country with her husband in their motorhome for several years, had been down in Florida when COVID-19 shutdowns swept the nation, and the abrupt end to face-to-face interaction was similar to the pull of a social plug.
