One of the UK’s hottest new singer/songwriters 19 year old Jess Thristan is releasing the breath taking new single Little Bird. 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 out now, 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 and has already flying up the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts in pre orders.
With Little Bird already achieving national radio play on BBC Radio 2 and a live performance on Clare Balding’s radio show, Little Bird looks certain to further Jess Thristan’s reputation.

Slim Twig’s DFA Records debut, A Hound At The Hem, is released in the UK on December 1st. The spooky new Meg Remy-directed video for ‘Maintain The Charade’ has arrived just in time for Halloween. Need a costume idea? Peep the video below because Slim Twig has you covered.
Originally released on vinyl in an extremely limited run via Twig’s own Calico Corp label and Pleasence Records, DFA will give A Hound At The Hem its proper release on December 1st. Self-produced in fall 2010, A Hound At The Hem is a suite of narrative songs thematically inspired by Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita. As a concept album exploring the troubling and the taboo and themes like the transformative power of lust, A Hound At The Hem can be interpreted as an echolike response to Serge Gainsbourg and Jean-Claude Vannier’s Histoire De Melody Nelson. Most of all, A Hound At The Hem poses the question; where next for Slim Twig, this promising and original auteur?
Josh Healey’s new EP Lost, Found & Lost Again is out now and is already getting national radio play for it.
The lead track, Sometimes, starts the EP with a very relaxing and laid back feel, the acoustic guitar very subtle in the background with the vocals carrying the song. There is a hint of folk in the song which carrys the song very well, breaking the song up between verses. Tom Robinson of BBC 6 Music has already been playing this track which is huge statement to how well written this track is to start off the EP.
A more upbeat track to follow with People Like You, a song to tap your feet to but a very strong message in the lyrics of the song about society today. The song helps the EP along after the lead track to show that Josh can write powerful upbeat music with strong underlining messages and make it work with more soft acoustic songs.
City of Saints has a beautiful finger picked intro that carries the song and shows off Josh’s talent on the acoustic guitar. A simple song of just Josh and his acoustic guitar in very stripped down and raw track. The title track Lost, Found & Lost Again closes the EP perfectly. The intro of acoustic guitar and piano which play throughout give the perfect accompaniment to Josh’s soft vocals in a very heartfelt track to close the EP.
Josh’s beautiful subtle tones have already been compared favourably with the legendary Nick Drake, which can’t be bad!
The EP ‘Lost, Found & Lost Again’ is available now on iTunes here.
