A proud "word nerd" since childhood, Jess Martyn studied journalism and advertising at university, and completed countless internships during her degree. She interned at local newspapers and agencies, (slightly desperately) cold-emailed marketing execs in search of opportunities, and finally discovered music journalism. She began writing for AAA Backstage in 2015, progressed from intern to editor within six months, and eventually made the transition to The Music, first as a live reviewer, then as a features writer. Writer by day and musician by night, Jess has also been performing in venues around Brisbane since her early teens, including several regular venues on the northside. She is working on a string of singles and an eventual full-length album under the name ‘Blue Jay’.
