Edge of the Wilderness Instrumentals

Released March of 2023 to all music platforms.

Edge of the Wilderness

New EP released January 20, 2023. Immersive electronic textures, visceral rock dynamics, & infectious pop melodies + deeply personal stories of pain, loss, & love. It’s a protest, a ballad, a journal & a ride through uncharted realms.

Available now on all music platforms.

Whenever I’m creating, the thing I enjoy most is the ability it gives me to express emotions. To communicate something that’s deep and true. From music, to poetry, to social media posts, to my taking-forever-to-finish novel, it’s all about getting what’s swirling around on the inside OUT. So. Nice to meet you.

“Her voice is angelic and calm juxtaposed against her guttural lyrics.”

— Modern Mystery Blog

Edge of the Wilderness is a refreshingly open EP. While most artists avoid such heavy topics, Jessica leans in and says what she means without any apologies. I highly recommend listening to Edge of the Wilderness.”

“Oh my gosh, album is BEAUTIFUL”

“Very pleasant and relaxing composition. Perfect full listening sounds that were arranged so well. The piano theme in the background is beautiful, capturing just the right emotion that progresses further with each new layer of harmony. The voice near the end is so wonderful, very dreamy and gentle.”
