Her music is heavily influenced by jazz traditions, soul music, Latin Afro/Cuban rhythms, classical music, and a variety of world cultures. She made her debut into the Manila music scene as a singer-keyboardist at age 17 at the Boy Katindig Jazz Competition. From there, she began performing with other local indie bands and became active as a solo artist before finally forming her own jazz fusion band The Jireh Calo Project at age 18. That same year, Jireh represented the Philippines at the 2014 World Youth Jazz Festival in Malaysia and within the same month, released her self-titled debut EP ‘Jireh‘ produced by Paolo Garcia.

Aside from performing and making music, Jireh is also passionate about using the arts to educate, nurture, and uplift people within and beyond her community.
