‘Little Bird’ single out now from Jess Thristan

At just 19, Jess Thristan is one of the UK’s top young female singer-songwriters, and she’s returned with new single and video ‘Little Bird’:

Sweet and catchy, it’s a beautiful new offering from a great new artist who is relying on good old fashioned songwriting to make her way as opposed to over production and skimpy swimwear. It’s refreshing to see, and marks her out as a genuine talent in a tough industry to get into.

With a live performance on Radio 2 already under her belt though, Thristan has every chance of making it to the next level – a very promising prospect indeed.

New EP from Josh Healey – ‘Lost, Found & Lost Again’ – Oct 27th

Already getting radio play with the lead track ‘Sometimes’, the new EP from Josh Healey is released next Monday. A singer-songwriter with a gentler touch than many, the five tracks on the EP demonstrate an artist who is assured in his songwriting and as such doesn’t feel the need to shout from the rooftops. In stark contrast, his music is uniformly understated and built on a very strong (and clearly thought out) approach to his lyrics.

Here is the opening track ‘Sometimes’ by way of example.

Perhaps the most commercial of all the songs on the EP (it’s no surprise that it’s this one that’s been chosen to take to radio) this serves as a very good introduction to the work of Healey, but for a fuller flavour the rest of the EP comes highly recommended too. Each of the sings has a distinct personality, whether strummed or plucked on the acoustic, while the vocal remains delicately poised throughout.

Jess Thristan records live version of ‘Little Bird’ for Ont’ Sofa

One of the UK’s hottest new singer/songwriters 19 year old Jess Thristan has recorded a breath taking live version of her upcoming new single ‘Little Bird’. The stripped back version of the wonderfully melodic and catchy tune is a masterly piece of music that fuses classic singer/songwriting with contemporary pop sensitivities.

The new single, which is released October 20th, is a follow up to April’s ‘Side By Side’ EP which gained major national radio play and reached number 8 in the iTunes singer/songwriter chart.

‘Little Bird’ shows a progression in the development of Jess as an extremely credible writer and performer. Also recorded at the Ont’ Sofa sessions was Jess’ interpretation of the classic Beatles track ‘From Me To You’. To view ‘From Me To You’ visit the link below.

With ‘Little Bird’ already achieving national radio play on BBC Radio 2 and with a live performance already booked on Clare Balding’s radio show, the single looks certain to further Jess Thristan’s reputation.
