Jessica Gerhardt is a singer-songwriter and ukuleleist from Santa Monica who first began writing songs at the age of 8.

In 2016 she recorded a cover of Emmylou Harris's "Little Bird" under the name Feronia which was featured on a tribute album with a number of prolific LA artists including Phoebe Bridgers. Taking a break for a few years from actively performing, Gerhardt returned under her own name creating powerful music that explores depth and vulnerability with the release of her debut EP Be My Hands, produced by Patrick Doyle.
