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.

That punchy verse grabs you by the collar and screams in your face, before blooming into such a warm and vulnerable chorus. Sexual frustration never sounded so good.

I always know I'm going to like a Jess Day song before I hear it, because that's what you get when an artist's songwriting is THAT good and THAT consistent.
