Bio

Having grown up in the remote mining town of Roxby Downs, Jess Day adapted to her pre-
teen relocation to the city of Adelaide by putting feelings of loneliness and nostalgia to
music. The DIY approach she took to making music as an isolated teenager from her
bedroom has shaped the now 21-year-old singer/songwriter’s sound into moody indie pop
with hints of snarling punk attitude. Her freewheeling approach to songwriting, blended
with her distinctive voice has led to the creation of a sound and emotional vulnerability that belies her young age.

Jess Day has a voice that somehow cuts through. Hours after hearing her songs I can hear it in my head like it was playing real-time. Couple that with songs like Rabbit Hole and Why Is She So Beautiful and you've got the trappings of an artist on the come up.

It's smart, it's edgy and I loved every second.
