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.

Asha returns with a confessional new single ‘Break’. Produced by Ian Haug, guitarist and songwriter for both Powderfinger and The Church, ‘Break’ is a coming to. From a musician for whom artistic and personal work are inextricably linked the song plays like a lifted veil, as relationships are seen for what they are.

‘Break’ follows on from the success of Asha’s previous releases, ‘Bad Kisser’, ‘If You Were My Hero’ and ‘Everybody Talks’, which were added to rotation across triple j and triple j Unearthed. Asha featured on Noah Dillon's latest single 'Knievel Daredevil' and has previously shared the stage with Julia Jacklin, Lime Cordiale, City and Colour. As well as playing festival slots at Bluesfest, Woodford Folk and Mullum Music Festivals. Asha has won a prestigious Queensland Music Award, the triple j Unearthed NIDA Competition and has been shortlisted for the Vanda & Young’s Songwriting Competition.

I can hear this one getting stronger and stronger the more we hear it. Has a plenty of warmth and intimacy.

Asha has carved a very alluring, authentic and resonant sound, really gets you to sit in the music and hang on to every word. Crybaby really turns a new leaf, so beautifully told

parts of this remind me of Folkore/Evermore. sparkly pop melodies and romantic lyrics grounded by folky, acoustic undertones. then there's your voice! ugh! perfection!
