It's me - Jess. I'm 18 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', every Cows release, Shiner's 'Lula Divinia', Castor's 'Tracking Sounds Alone', and National Skyline's 'National Skyline' to be perfect albums in every respect.
2016: 1 song :^(

Thank you so much for your kind comments about my song, Last Night was Paradise. This has been my first year at FAWM so I appreciate your feedback!
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! 😁
Thank you so much for singing on my choon. I'm really pleased with how it came out, and super grateful that you chose to give of your time and talents. You're awesome.
also, it is in fact NOT a bass guitar. it's just an effect on my guitar amp 😝
Thanks for the comment on "Never Saw it Coming" 😀
Repetition makes a skirmish easier - fewer words to come up with 😉 lol x

Thanks for your words on "Never Saw Me". I'm glad you enjoyed it. 😀
