Introducing: Maz O’Connor – Jessica

Jessica is the latest single from British singer/songwriter, composer and writer Maz O’connor. The tinkling piano riff and soaring clarinet lines give it a classical feel. Stamps, claps, and paper scrunches deepen the rhythmic complexity. The vocals deliver the lyrics with ethereal, dreamy tones.

Maz listened to the instrumental as she cycled through Victoria Park, East London, on a beautiful, sunny day; the uplifting sound of the music reminded her of being 17 and hanging out with her best friend, watching River Phoenix movies and drinking stolen wine. By the time she got home, the lyrics were almost complete.

Maz is steadily gaining momentum since the release of this song. Make sure to keep an eye on this rising talent as she’s currently working on an album titled vulpes.
