In Brooklyn – UK Top 50 Viral Tracks

We released ‘In Brooklyn’ as a single this week on Spotify.  The song has had some really lovely feedback and support from traditional and internet radio alike. The song came from a true story – so for me, that always gives the song the edge in terms of what it means to me. I’ve been gunning for ‘In Brooklyn’ to do good things – a bit like a parent shipping the kids off on the first day of school – hoping they make friends.

We’ve all had reason to smile this week though… as ‘In Brooklyn’ made it into the UK top 50 Viral Tracks. I was in Oslo with the team from Drabant when the news broke – smiles and celebrations all round.

Here’s me playing it live:-

As well as some lovely radio support, here are a few of the magazine and blog clippings we’ve had so far…

‘This girl could rock out hard, just as easily as she can keep it folk. Be sure to add this one to your collection’ – **** Maverick Magazine

‘All in all this album deserves to be Jess’s breakthrough. It’s by all turns troubling, moving and ultimately life-affirming; made with skill, passion and love.’ Shire Folk

Edison Gloriette – Playlisted

Following some terrific radio support from favourite BBC Scotland DJs – Ricky Ross, Roddy Hart and Iain Anderson – ‘Skate While You’re Skinny’ was playlisted on BBC Scotland this week!

We also got played out by Mark Radcliffe on the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show, and repeated support from Gideon Coe on BBC 6 Music. I’m also delighted that Ralph MacLean and Cherrie McIllwaine in Northern Ireland, Frank Hennessey in Wales and BBC stations in England have all played several tracks from the album.


Spotify playlists have grown in imporance significantly since I last made a record. I’m really pleased to see that tracks from this album are making it into playlists – bringing my music to new people who otherwise, might not have heard of me.

‘In The Woods’ is a dreamy contemporary folk playlist – featuring a track from me – but also from my good buddy and excellent singer-songwriter from Oslo, Siv Jakobsen.

‘New Music Friday – Sweden’ also chose ‘In Brooklyn’ on the day of it’s release for there huge playlist. Thank you Sweden.
