The first release from the Essex 20 year old, "Set Apart" got a lot of attention in 2011 with its straightforward message over a "neo-soul beat". Now we have the EP with five tracks and with additional intro, interlude and remix. Jessica demonstrates that she is more adventurous than some of her contemporaries. "He Loves Me" is even simpler than "Set Apart" while "Join" is up-to-the-minute R&B with an infectious groove. The outstanding track is "Like David", present with an aggressive electric guitar while the remix moves towards a more R&B feel. Clearly, Jessica has both the voice (demonstrated on the ballad "God's Love") and the musical awareness to connect with a broad audience.
