Born in Jamaica, raised in the US, and living in Australia since the age of 18, JASIA (Josiah Willows) is a classically trained vocalist, violinist and guitarist. Playing in bands from a young age, JASIA discovered a love for synthesised instrumentation and from there began to combine a range of beat-driven electronic layering and traditional melodic instrumentation to create a contrasting yet unique interpretation of sound.

Triple J Unearthed Top 10 Discoveries This Year

“From the multi-layered vocal samples, to the orchestral string sections, to the spacey guitar parts and edgy electronic touches, it seems like there’s no way this could come from one man.” - Hilly Dilly
“An ethereal, melted ice cream, swing-pushing-itself kind of vibe.” - Backyard Opera
“A natural gift for deriving bass driven electronic beats overlaid with orchestral layers of synthesisers, strings, guitars on a bed of vocal samples” - The Music Ninja

This is some very heady stuff and sifting through the layers is worth it. Particularly, the contrast of strings, guitars, and 808 beats. I like how the warped vocals sort of guide the ear through the journey.

Oh this is so pretty! I feel like I'm floating on a big ship with a great band playing on the deck and I don't have a care in the world. Otherworldly. Great stuff.

You know what? Jasia's influences are actually spot on. Dense electronica, shining falsetto and impeccable layering all in the one song. What a beauty.
