Bio

You can download our debut free EP here: www.jackieonassis.net Facebook: www.facebook.com/JackieOnassis187 Sydney duo Jackie Onassis are surely the best kept secret in Australian hip-hop. Comprised of vocalist Kai and producer Raph, Jackie Onassis are the newest members of the One Day crew, a collective comprised of Horrorshow, Spit Syndicate and Joyride. Kai belongs to a rare breed of MCs who have a masterful command of their voice, combining sharp delivery with rich, catchy melodies. Raph’s beats blend lush synths and electronica, warm samples, 808 drums and live instruments to create a distinct and truly unique style of production. Jackie Onassis’ explosive live show have already caught the attention of many. Melbourne MC Illy hand-picked the duo to support him on his Bring it Back tour, and recently wowed audiences on Spit Syndicate’s Sunday Gentlemen tour. Their first single "Crystal Balling" was quickly picked up by Triple J and given rotation by taste maker Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1 and quickly intensified the buzz about this hot new group. Jackie Onassis’ recent single "Smoke Trails" is currently on rotation on Triple J and serves as the opening track from their free debut EP: Holiday. This 8-track offering showcases the duo’s knack for weaving dense storytelling, Gen-Y commentary and energetic, catchy choruses, amongst textured, contemporary production. Holiday is available for free download; check it out today and see why the hype is so deserved – because Jackie Onassis are a secret that won’t be kept for much longer. Holiday is available for free download via: www.jackieonassis.net Jackie Onassis are available for interviews both by phone, email and in person. Contact: info@jackieonassis.net

I fell in love with Jackie Onassis through their early slow jams, so it's great to hear them revisit that territory. They do it so well.
