Give a listen to Jessica's single "Long Drive" here.
Hey there Jessica! Thanks for taking the time to talk with us about your most recent single "Long Drive"! What an incredible sound you've managed to craft with this particular song. Can you tell us more about your creative vision for "Long Drive" and how you found the inspiration for the song?
Long Drive came about one summer afternoon as I watched the smoke from the Parry Sound fires drift over the lake. It made me think about the fleeting moments of life and how people and things can come and go in an instant. These emotions manifested into words that I immediately wrote down. Little did I know that these words would turn into a song about finding what has been lost and the physical and mental imagery that comes along with that journey.
Your music, especially your recent music such as "Long Drive" has an incredibly reflective atmosphere that we received as listeners. What's the main effect you want to convey to your listeners through "Long Drive"?
When listening to Long Drive, I want people to feel a sense of longing and nostalgia. The lyrics are depicting the steps that the narrator is taking to find their other half. While on their way, they recall past moments triggered by imagery as well as all the motivations for finding this person. I want every listener to find their own meaning in the lyrics, but also feel like they are on the journey to discovery as well.
Do you ever face doubts about your creative approach as you're working through the songwriting and recording process, or do you mainly stay confident with your musical insight?
Like most artists, yes, I do face doubt momentarily while writing. Sometimes I feel that just because I like a sound doesn’t mean that everyone listening will like it as well. However, I am able to take a step back and reassure myself that it is okay if not everyone is a fan of my music. Everyone has different tastes and it is impossible to please every crowd. I feel many artists face this dilemma as well.
Are you planning on performing in the near future to showcase your new music? Where has been your personal favorite venue to perform at thus far in your artistic career?
Yes! I am planning shows in Toronto and London, Ontario. I can’t announce any events yet, but they will be very exciting shows. All updates about live events are always updated on my website and social media platforms. As for favorite venues, well, all of them have been my favorite! It is impossible to choose just one venue when everywhere I go I am greeted with such warm words and supportive people.
Do you see yourself ever incorporating genres that you haven't worked with before into your new music?
I definitely have considered touching upon other genres. I grew up listening to a lot of rock music and eventually I think it would be super cool to write songs that are more rock-based. However, right now I am happy with writing what flows naturally with my lyrics and mood.
