‘Although [the music industry] looks very pretty, it can be a scary environment. I felt quite trapped,’ she told the audience.  

She went on to say she decided to take back her power and make changes.   

‘In 2020 I took that leap and took back my confidence and my power. I owe music so much,’ she added.

In February, she split from former manager David Champion, who signed her at 16. She said the pair now ‘see things differently’ when it comes to her career.   

‘I found a new way to be the boss lady in the room. I started to put my foot down, and people listened,’ she previously told Private Sydney. 

Jessica explained she and David separated because from a ‘business and musical perspective, we see things differently’ but said there were on ‘good terms’.
