Tessa is now working on a new album with an electronic feel
A Ledbury musician is reviving her career after suffering from depression.
The video of Tessa Frith's latest single 'No More' has had over 1,300 views since it was posted on January 1.
"It's about new beginnings really - we recorded it in the autumn, so it captures the sense of things ending and moving on," said Tessa.
Her debut album, Mindscapes, released last year, features material written in her 20s while she was in hospital suffering from depression.
Tessa, now 35 and a teaching assistant at Hereford Art College, describes success of the new single has another milestone in her career:
"It's fantastic and really exciting - hopefully it's appealing to a wide audience and helping direct them to the rest of my music on the album on Amazon and iTunes."
Posting the video online has meant Tessa's been able to launch a music career without needing to perform on-stage - something her mental health problems have hampered.
"That's the one area where I struggle with my anxiety - when I get nervous it's literally a handicap with the guitar-playing.
"I'm just getting back to going on-stage now, but the internet is fantastic and has really allowed me to get my stuff out there - but I would like to start performing in the near future."
Tessa's just about to start working on the new album which she says will have quite a different sound to it.
"I do usually gravitate towards the guitar when I'm writing but I like the electronic element too."

"Again, I'm hoping that will appeal to even more people - I love such a variety of music, it's a way of keeping my finger in lots of pies."
