Jess Thristan single – ‘From Me To You’ (Beatles cover song) – Nov 27th

It seems a long time now since Jess Thristan first made an impact with her debut EP, but in truth it’s only been a year or two since this talented songwriter first appeared on the radar.

Since then, her soulful vocal and rootsy pop style has made her a promising commodity, with support from both local and national BBC radio outlets and a string of top releases to her name.

And now, with a debut full length LP on the way, Thristan has released new single ‘From Me To You’. You can hear the track – a Beatles cover – above, and stay on top of all the upcoming album news at http://www.jessthristan.co.uk/

Out now: New EP from Jess Thristan – Live on Love

Released on Monday Live on Love is the new EP from Jess Thristan, a female singer-songwriter who has shown great consistency in recent months. It’s lead out of the gate by the excellent title track video:

A lovely blend of Ed Sheeran and Jack Johnson but with a pure female vocal to set it apart, the track typifies what’s great about Jess Thristan as a songwriter. Her lyrics are thoughtful and effective – wondering whether we’re held back from happiness by the gadgets of the information age – but presented in an upbeat package that belies its serious point.

It’s this kind of smart writing that runs through all Thristan’s work, and makes a new EP something to be excited about. With three tracks in total to enjoy and pore over, that’s less than a quid each.

Get it here. Go on, you deserve it.

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.

‘Side By Side’ EP out now from Jess Thristan

The press notes for this new EP from 18 year old Yorkshire songwriter Jess Thristan paint her as ‘raw’ and ‘classy’, an acoustic artist with real talent. You see a lot of performers these days who claim quality, and I’m pleased to say that – in this case – the press info is correct.

While not as ‘raw’ as some acoustic artists I’ve heard (there is an unmistakably professional sheen to all four tracks – check out this video if you don’t believe me), this is definitely classy stuff.

The lyrics are not the simple, straightforwardly lovelorn words you might expect from someone still two years from 20, but instead pointed – an introduction to a world view beyond her years.

Add to that the switches of style between each song, and this is a strong start from Jess Thristan. The EP is on iTunes now.
