GUISE Returns With New Song “Wish”
London-based singer-songwriter Jessica Guise, aka GUISE returned with a new song “Wish” along with a music video on November 17, 2023.
The song is her first music in a year since the 2022 debut album “Youngest Daughter”.
The track was written as a conversation with her late father, Jessica Guise reminisces on the immortal memories they shared together, while wondering what he would have made of the way her life has turned out since.
The track was written by Jessica Guise, and Lukas Drinkwater, who also produced it.
Jessica Guise said of the song, “'Wish' is a conversation with my Dad, who died suddenly when I was 18. It's my best attempt at expressing the continued pain of losing someone you love, and what it's been like learning to carry that love around without him still being here to receive it. Music was a shared language for us and this is the closest I can get to feeling like I'm still actually talking to him. He was the wisest person I've ever known and navigating the world without his advice has been a hard and relentless challenge, really. I always, always want to know what he'd think, especially about what I write.”
- She added, “I was already proud of this song, but recording it with my dear friend Lukas Drinkwater, who connected to it so personally and brought some completely fresh ideas to the table along with his incredible musicianship, has resulted in something that neither of us expected. It was such a joy to see the song grow in the studio like that, and I think it's become my favourite thing I've made to date. I'm about as sure as I can ever be that my Dad would like this one.”
Jessica Guise shared on social media, “I wrote this song because I wanted to talk to my Dad, who taught me about music and so much else. I wish he could hear it, or that I didn't have to write it, but I'm proud of it.
She continued, I had the most wonderful, emotional time recording it with my dear and wildly talented friend Lukas Drinkwater who also mixed it, and between us we made something I really love. Gorgeous hubs Frank Turner mastered it with some fairy dust or something. The collective result is something I'm really proud of, which matters because it's a song for the person who taught me to love music.”
