It's me - Jess. I'm 17 years old and I appreciate sounds from afar in my secret hideout somewhere in between Sleaford and Bourne. I play a few instruments, but - admittedly - not very well. Or often. Musically I go by the moniker 'Bridge Control' but I'm thinking of changing that because it tastes of Poundland.

I use Reaper on Windows as my main DAW (I need the VSTs), and Ardour on Manjaro Linux for piano recordings and quick whip-ups. My drum sounds are from a variety of free sources, though I programme them myself.

To give you an idea of The Ultimate Endstage, I consider Hum's 'You'd Prefer an Astronaut', Cows' 'Sexy Pee Story', and National Skyline's 'National Skyline' to be perfect albums in every respect.


2016: 1 song :^(
2017: 3 songs :^/
2018: 11 songs as well as random backing vocals :^)))))))))
2019: definitely 14 songs. I promise.

    Of course! I'll try and listen to the rest of your songs soon, things have just been busy and was feel post-FAWM burnout. Ha!

    Thank you for your message and for sharing your music this year! I really enjoyed your stuff as well, you've got a really nice set of songs this year for sure.

    I can't put my finger on the best explanation, but your songs stuck out as special in my mind this year among the 200+ I've listened to! That's an accomplishment in my eyes.

    I'm seeing some negative self talk in your bio and liner notes and just wanted to say shhhhh with that. I think you got skilllz girl - some really interesting concepts and musical ideas. And your voice is great! And you're bloody 17! Get out! 😁
