Born and raised in Western Montana, Jessi Trauth moved to New York City at the age of 18 where she earned a BFA in theatre from NYU - Tisch School of the Arts.  As a singer, dancer, actor, visual artist, teacher, and coach, Jessi has performed both nationally and internationally.  With a thirst for creative expression she works to facilitate connection and activate the senses.  
Jessi began hosting interactive wine tastings in 2013.  The project WINE & MUSIC features fine wines from around the globe paired with music, movement, food, poetry and more. 
Jessi has recently returned to Western Montana where she fronts a jazz, soul, blues band called CORK & SPARK, hosts interactive musical wine tastings, and teaches dance, voice, and acting.   Message me about booking the band, hosting a tasting, and/or scheduling a lesson.  
Jessi is also an experienced visual artist and owner of her wearable art line, JessiSneaks.  Message me for art commissions.  
Proud member of Actor's Equity.
