In 2014 at the age of 18 Jess began creating her debut album, working with the likes of Steve Crisanthou, who co-wrote the huge Corinne Bailey-Rae single ‘Put Your Records On’ and the Eliza Doolttle single ‘Mr Medicine’. Jess has also collaborated with Jonny Wright (Foxes, Becky Hill, Beth Rowley). She released her debut single ‘Little Bird’ in October 2014 on Better Than Cake Records gaining fantastic support from Clare Balding at BBC Radio 2. Clare invited Jess to perform a live session on her Sunday morning radio show in October 2014. Jess has also enjoyed fantastic regional BBC support,especially from her home station BBC Radio Leeds (Johnny I’anson, Larry & Paul Show, Liz Green and Richard Stead).
The album is virtually completed and culminated in the recording of three titles with a 22 piece Orchestra at the famous Angel Recording Studios London. This included her cover ‘From Me To You’ by The Beatles. Also the stunning song ‘The Shield’ written by Jess at the tender age of 15. The end of 2015 saw the release of her new single ‘From Me To You’ which is a beautiful and completely new arrangement of the Beatles classic and set to touch the hearts of all who get to hear it, her influences include Nina Nesbit, The Beatles & Coldplay.
