Light, entertaining and instantly catchy, this video is ‘Live on Love’ by Jess Thristan – the title track to a new EP which sees the singer-songwriter on typically fine form. With so many acoustic songwriters to choose from in the UK at the moment, it takes a lot of effort to keep standing head and shoulders above the rest, but there’s just something about Thristan that means she manages to do that.
Maybe it’s because her voice just flows out of her, making all that effort seem easy, thanks to a talent that is so obviously inherent. Thristan was clearly born to sing, and it helps that she writes songs which suit her perfectly. The track above sees her on cheeky, melodic form, but the other two tracks on the EP explore the more powerful side of a versatile vocal.
The EP, her second, is out now, and yet another step forward for an acoustic songwriter who stands out from a crowded stage. Long may it continue.
