Feedback after the launch phase of JessTalks, February 2019
I just wanted to say that I thoroughly enjoyed Saturday evening and what an informative and interesting performance it was. It was fascinating and I have not enjoyed a live performance so much for a long time.

I think the idea of bringing new audiences to new music is really important and to introduce them through a conversation about the music is very approachable and worked really well! I’m also very impressed that you were really able to bring in the audiences without much experience in contemporary music, often these kind of events end up preaching to those who are already familiar with this musical world.
