Bio

Hailing from the Northern Rivers and raised in Brisbane, Asha Jefferies is best known for her somber, melancholy pop songs - combining the patience of folk with the urgency of youth.

Her latest single ‘Crybaby’ inspired by the death and rebirth of a relationship was premiered on triple j Good Nights and was added to rotation across triple j, Double j and triple j Unearthed. Asha's previous releases also received airplay and additions from community radio national, including FBi, 4ZZZ, RTR, Radio Adelaide and 2SER and gained attention from the likes of NME, Pilerats, Happy Mag and Purple Sneakers

""...Somewhere between Jack River, Alex The Astronaut and even Paul Kelly, her weapon of choice is her guitar and her impeccable knack of telling great tales through her songs."" - Purple Sneakers.

Asha recently completed a national tour packing out rooms in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Fremantle and is about to lap the country again as main support for Josh Pyke.
