In 1999 Chambers recorded an album in California, USA called Dreaming Out Loud, which was never actually released.

Chambers recorded both of her albums at Dr Lee Prebble's The Surgery Studio in Wellington.

Opening for Bic Runga in Nelson in 2000 was the trigger that spurred her on to seriously pursue songwriting as a career.

Jess Chambers shares her birthday with David Bowie and Elvis.
