About Jess And Matt
Matt laughs: "Saving petrol and using the one car was a big thing!"
The Sydney lovebirds have been slogging it out on the pubs and clubs circuit for the last five years. They saw The X Factor as an opportunity to share their music with a wider audience. "The dream is to be playing to millions of people and having people know your songs. The X Factor is a great platform for that."
Jess grew up listening to 70s folk music from the likes of James Taylor and Carole King while Matt was influenced by blues and R&B legends such as Stevie Wonder.
Being a couple will work in their favour according to Jess. "We know each other inside out and have each other as support through the competition."
