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 22-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.

I'll say this again and again, she knows how to write a solid pop hook. And serves them up like hotcakes.
