Back from a year of writing, travelling and performing, Yorkshire-born country voice Jess Thristan is back with new music in ‘The Old Me’.
Laid-back and easy-going, ‘The Old Me’ sees Thristan make a guitar-powered country return in style. As she casts an eye back over her musical journey, the songstress coos, “I used to stand a little taller, laugh a little louder” in the ode to re-finding herself.
“The Old Me highlights a time where I was a bit lost on my own journey and I was comparing myself to older versions of myself instead of moving forward and evolving, and that’s the story I wanted to tell with the lyrics of this song. I got the chance to work with some incredible musicians on this track which we recorded in the amazing Rocket Studios.”
Thristan’s first release of the year, following 2018’s festive EP and 2017’s This Is Home, it is influenced by artists such as Jillian Jacqueline and Maren Morris which shine through. A return back to her first love in country music after great success with the more singer/songwriter sounding ‘The Shield’ and The Beatles cover ‘From Me To You’, which featured on a Sky TV campaign, ‘The Old Me’ is a breath of fresh air.
