Acting Reviews and Praise

“ … I can happily say you were absolutely brilliant!!!”

Charmaine Gilchrist, Gilchrist Management, regarding At World’s End 3, May, 2022

 “ … Jack Manning was played with confidence by Jessica Hieser, who … presented an authoritive presence without becoming strident. As a catalyst and pivot for the narratives, Jack was an empathetic facilitator.” 

Review by Cate Dowling Trask, 2 plays from the Jack Manning triology, Nov 12, 2017

“STAG (sic) presents two plays from the Jack Manning Trilogy … Special mention must be made of the outstanding performances by … Jessica Hieser for her calm, intelligent portrayal of Manning in both performances.”

Review by Cheryl Threadgold, Melbourne Observer, Nov 11, 2017

“You reminded me of Guy Pearce when I first saw him play the role. You held a strong stance with a calm demeanour. You were eloquent, but fierce.”

Gail Armstrong, STAG President, 2 plays from the Jack Manning triology, STAG theatre, Nov, 2017.

“Jessica brought an invaluable level of dedication to my project, and her willingness to go the extra mile for every scene was a testament to her committed attitude and care for the craft.”

Director, Giles Campbell-Wright, Looking for Space, Feb 19 2017

Acting coaching

“Jess has been a pivotal part of my acting journey, helping me secure my first professional agent, as well as increasing my confidence in any acting setting” Jay Korf, Actor

“Since meeting Jessica on set where she played a teacher in a film my 10 year old son Joshua played the lead role in, Jessica has been coaching my son in acting and helped him secure his first acting agent! She then cast herself and Joshua in a short film which made Grand Final entry into the Unscene film competition, a very exciting evening for Joshua to see himself on the big screen at Rivoli cinemas, in only his 2nd short film! I asked Jess to also coach my youngest daughter Nicole, as with Jessica’s coaching, my children have thrived creatively. She has also provided materials to keep them engaged during social restrictions. I would highly recommend Jess as a teacher and look forward to resuming my kids’ lessons when social restrictions lift.” Jennifer, parent

Music and Acting guidance

“Jess has supported my 15 year old daughter with her school work, helping her get back on track during this challenging online learning time. Her support has also helped my daughter gain entry into a prestigious arts school for Year 10 (2021). Jess is positive, calm and empowering and we are very grateful for all she has done for our daughter and our family.” Catherine, Parent

Music Teaching

“Jess is such a great teacher to work with. She broke the info down to a very basic level for me as I didn’t have any previous experience with a keyboard. Jess also has a deep understanding of genres and styles of music so she could quickly understand what I wanted to create and could get me there quickly. Now I have an original song to play that I’ve composed all by myself under Jess’s guidance. I couldn’t have imagined a more professional teacher or an easier and more intuitive process than this one, steered by with Jess!” Sunanda Sachatrakul, Comedian


“When asked to put her music into three simple words, Jess Hieser chose passionate, lyrical, and powerful. Driven to write poetry from a young age, she eventually made the leap from writing poetry to putting her poems to simple guitar chords—and the result was something unique and even esoteric. The form and patterns of her lyrics are a contrast to the formatted sounding pop lyrics we’re so used to hearing and provide for interesting rhythmic structures to her songs. Lyrics delivered from the heart make it easy for her to dig in and put every ounce of her energy into her vocal delivery. Take her song “Life”, which you can stream on her Facebook band page. It’s pretty unforgettable with its melancholy chord progression and that Bjork-esque huskiness to her voice, which builds up to an outro where she sounds like she could be singing in a windstorm, facing an imminent Armageddon. Aside from that one song, you’ll just have to come out and see her play live.”

Holistic guidance support

“My work is highly stressful, in my sessions with Jess, she has helped me develop strategies to shift my focus, with practical ways to integrate relaxation. I have found renewed energy and great benefit from her guidance. She has motivated me with my writing as well as a creative coach. I highly recommend her.” Arda, Interpreter

“I was on my way to an appointment when I ‘randomly’ ran into Jess when I was in the midst of a challenging time, I had just lost my job and was feeling at my absolute lowest. Using Intuitive guidance Jess transformed my thinking about the job situation and I walked away with a changed perspective! Jessica was able to tap into my own intuition, encouraged me to listen to my inner voice and enabled me to think clearly and see the purpose of what was going on. I changed my thinking completely and started realizing I was unhappy at the job I was previously at anyway. Using this new positive energy I put my time and effort into getting the job I really wanted. I highly recommend Jess for listening and empowering me, enabling my own clarity and helping me release new energy in moving forward. Thank you Jess!” Madeleine, Teacher
