Someone is the moniker for composer/musician/visual artist Tessa Rose Jackson. As Someone, she releases music and art, searching for fresh ways to fuse the two together whenever possible. In 2020 Someone compiled the best of her two EPs, plus four new tracks, into "Orbit II", an album about society and dealing with the world we live in right now, with a little smidgen of existential worry about the future. Then the future caught up with all of us. When COVID struck, Someone found herself “writing music non-stop, because that's the thing that I automatically gravitate towards”.
