Esthero (born Jen-Bea Englishman, December 23, 1978 in Stratford, Ontario1) is a Canadian singer-songwriter who hails originally from Toronto, Ontario but has recently moved to Los Angeles. The name "Esthero," pronounced ), refers both to the singer and to the two-person team of herself and her producer, Doc. She claims to have gotten the name from an old film character named Esther, whose last line in a movie (called, The Bell Jar based on the autobiographical Sylvia Plath novel) is, "If I am to be the hero, then I cannot fly from darkness."

Esthero's sound characteristically features her voice over a mix of mellow bass lines, jazzy trumpets, Spanish guitar and hip-hop. She is sometimes compared to trip-hop artists Björk, Portishead and the Sneaker Pimps. Later artists who count Esthero among their influences include Res and fellow Canadian Nelly Furtado.

Esthero has appeared as a guest jurist on the popular MuchMusic
