Bio

Melbourne jangle rock project, Eaglemont, is the brainchild of Bridgitte Jessop. It’s been a year and a half since Eaglemont cut her teeth on Melbourne’s live scene with the release of her debut 7” ‘Mediocre at Best/Uppercut’, plus two sold-out shows at Melbourne’s Gasometer Hotel in 2018.

Eaglemont has crafted an insatiable brand of pop rock that delivers hooky guitar lines with emotionally intelligent and introspective lyricism. Eaglemont invites listeners into her corner of the world relating to audiences through stories of love, friendship and identity.

Beginning her musical career at age 5, Eaglemont was trained classically in violin before moving onto acoustic guitar inspired by artists, Missy Higgins and City and Colour. Early songs, ‘Texas’ and ‘Swept Away’ feature an acoustic sound whereas Eaglemont’s newer releases feature the fuzz of an electric guitar. Translating her classical violinist teachings to self-taught acoustic guitar, Eaglemont began penning songs in the hopes of articulating the unique challenges of growing up and constantly relocating. Eaglemont to most is a leafy suburb situated in Melbourne’s inner north, but to Eaglmont, it is a symbol for home regardless of geographical realities.
