Recording artist Jess Thristan wrote her first song, “The Shield”, at the early
age of 15 and five years later recorded it at the famous Angel Studios with a 24-
piece orchestra along with other tracks such as a stunning cover of The Beatles’
“From Me to You” which became the music for the SKY TV Christmas 2015 campaign.
Fast forward to 2018, Jess took a step back from promoting and touring to focus
on her new musical direction writing the music she has loved and been inspired by
since a child and feels most naturally suited to. She’s been busy writing and
recording with a strong country music influence from the likes of Maren Morris
and Jillian Jacqueline whilst retaining her own roots and style.
Jess began collaborating with a variety of songwriters, artists and producers
whose music she already admired while testing the new tunes at intimate venues
around London, Manchester and Leeds which opened doors for Jess within the UK
From selling out her own night at London members club The Library to opening for
Remember Monday at their single launch party presented by CountrylineTV, which also
rendered lovely praise on Maverick magazine, Jess closed the year working with none other than Tim
Prottey-Jones (The Wandering Hearts) and Jamie Evans (Wildwood Kin).
Jess’ first county EP is set to be released this Spring 2019.
