Jessica Irwin is a unique young woman with a different perspective on life to most of us. Born with a high level of cerebral palsy, together with an equally high level of self-determination and raw talent, she has excelled in achieving her goal of establishing and operating a commercial photography, website and graphic design business.
Testing the waters in music band photography, Jessica is extremely lucky to have been taken under the wing of Australia’s raw music legend Steve Balbi (Noiseworks, Mi-Sex, Electric Hippies, Black Rainbow). Her talent has been recognised by being invited to photograph on the red carpet
for the ARIA Music Awards in 2013, 2014 and 2015!
2015 saw Jessica join forces with the biomedical engineer, Dr Jordan Nguyen and his team at Psykinetic. Utilising Psykinetic’s eye-controlled music instrument, ATMOSPHERE, enabled Jessica to achieve her ultimate dream of performing music on stage. Accompanying the Australia Piano Quartet, Jessica was the first musician to play an eye-controlled instrument at the Sydney Opera House and TEDx. This lead to many more classical music performances and improvements to the newly created instrument, ATMOSPHERE. Then in 2017, she discovered her place next to her idol, Steve Balbi, performing rock at Telstra Vantage. Steve and Jessica released their first single together, “Winners (Psykinetic Mix)” which is available on iTunes, Spotify and Google Play.
