Jessica began co-writing with him and this collaboration has created a style and sound that is completely unique.

After a sabbatical in the UK, Jessica came home to Australia in 2011 and to the studio with Duncan to work on her debut album "Photograph" and her first single "Adelaide Road" proved popular on country radio and iTunes with her second single "Australia" charting nationally. Highlights of 2011 included performing seven shows with label-mates Dane Sharp, Caroline Taylor-Knight and Duncan Wood and the Touchwood band at the Tamworth Country Music Festival for the second year running and at the Logan Unites 4 Lockyer Benefit Event, and Urban Country Music Festival. .

Jessica is currently having massive success as an author of the "Nevermoor" series of books and is therefore pursuing this passion and her music career is now on hold.
