Some people spend decades waiting and searching to discover their passion and calling in life. But for Sierra Jamerson, the special gift was uncovered early and naturally in life. At the young age of 3, Sierra had already established her talent and desire to be apart of the music world. The three year old awed crowds as a soloist in a gospel choir. At the age of 11, Sierra was spending her time singing Black Gospel music and touring nation-wide!
Sierra Jamerson does not only sing, she has many other talents, goals, and ambitions. She sings predominantly jazz/r&B/soul music. Alongside a great music career, Sierra juggles a busy life as a music teacher and song writer.
Sierra is passionate about discussing social issues and subject matters in her music. She often writes songs dealing with women, First Nation, and African issues. Her words are powerful and aimed at raising awareness and empowering. As writing and music helps her release her own emotions and feelings, Sierra hopes that her words continue to help others release theirs and find strength. Recently, Sierra topped the weekly Canadian Chart at www.ridethetempo.com with her amazing song "Blood in the Water".

Sierra ends her advice with wise words for up-and-coming artists: “Set yourself apart from your peers by being accountable and earnest. Act like you got some sense.” This can also be advice for every part of life.
When asked what 3 things she simply cannot live without, Sierra responds:
- scarves [gotta keep my instrument wrapped up in the cold weather!]
- bright red or deep purple lipstick [I don't wear a lot of make-up but I never leave the house without lipstick ].
- A travel mug because I am always drinking water, or tea [Throat Coat tea is a singers best friend].
