In a genre that’s increasingly inspiring female empowerment anthems and outspoken artists such as Kacey Musgraves, Maren Morris and Mickey Guyton, comes Jess Thristan. Jess is fresh from playing Country2Country Festival and Buckle & Boots Festival and is set to play The Long Road Festival in August 2022. Jess has co-written tracks for the likes of Jade Helliwell and Tim Prottey-Jones, whilst also releasing her own singles from The Old Me in 2019, to Woman Up in 2021 which have been featured in editorial playlists such as Very Nearly Nashville, Today’s Country & Shania Twain’s Kick-Ass Women of Country playlist as well as played by Brad Paisley on BBC Radio 2. Jess’ brand new single Worse Than Me is out now!
Worse Than Me is an emotional, yet powerful, song written with and produced by songwriter-producer Kaity Rae, about the pressures of self-doubt. The fear that so often keeps us caged inside with our own demons. The internal self-talk that we don’t protect ourselves from, like we would a friend. This song was written from a place of questioning why we do this to ourselves – maybe if we’re already broken we can’t be bruised? Yet, there’s something beautiful about being aware that you have the power to change the narrative inside your own mind. To rise from the doubt and the voice that tells you you’re not good enough, or that you try too hard, or your friends are laughing behind your back, and to know that there is so much more to us than what we tell ourselves we are.
