Artist Bio

Influences:   hum, shotgun jimmie + shotgun & jaybird, castor, shiner, dis-, glifted + alpha mile, centaur, cows, duster, the police, failure, guzzard, the heroine sheiks, sianspheric, early starflyer 59, snailhouse, chore, 12 rods, my friends...

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 M̶a̶n̶j̶a̶r̶o̶ ̶L̶i̶n̶u̶x̶ Debian for piano recordings and quick whip-ups. My drum sounds are from a variety of free sources, though I programme them myself.

I used to have a pretty chunky influences section and whilst - yeah - everything I listen to does influence me in some way or another, my comprehensive music taste is something that can be saved for my profile (if yer interested). Otherwise - the influences listed are the artists that are having the biggest impact on my writing right now this moment.

I'm now hanging out over at 50/90. Come say hi:

    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!

  • @unkept Mar 8

    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! 😁

    also, it is in fact NOT a bass guitar. it's just an effect on my guitar amp 😝
