Q&A, with Jess - vocals & guitar

Define your genre in five words or less:

lush, tingly, soulful, rhythmic, colourful

If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be and why?

I would just go back to a time I could see Jeff Buckley play at Sin E, not to show our music but just to see him live, what a man!

What are your top 5 favourite albums?

Radiohead - all of them! Jeff Buckley's 'Grace' Local Natives 'Gorilla Manor'

What is your most memorable gig (playing or watching)?

Bon Iver last year at the myer music bowl - mind boggingly awesome! I didn't look at my watch once

Where do you usually draw inspiration from as a writer? Do you have a process? eg music first, lyrics first etc

finding out how other songwriters write fascinates me, I definitely have my own methods which draws from imagery, words, music or something inspiring but I like to try out new ways - Imogen Heap's collaboration with her fans is definitely something that caught my attention, what a great way to find inspiration and involve others
