Bio

It’s all about connection.

“Hey, do you wanna know?
Do you wanna know what’s on my mind?
I do, I think about you and how we end up on the same page but never eye to eye.”

- Jess McAvoy, Curious

Australian-born, Brooklyn-based songwriter and producer Jess McAvoy takes a departure from her 13-album, 22-year spanning pop/folk singer/songwriter guitar and vocal palette with Curious— a dark pop synth heavy beat-scape that questions a world in which people are losing the art of inquisitive face to face conversation.

Written and performed by Jess McAvoy and produced by McAvoy and Melbourne-based long time collaborator Joel Taylor, Curious creates a soundscape that urges the listener to meet the darkness halfway.

Curious is a standalone single, available through iTunes, Spotify, and all of the usual streaming outlets.

“How would I know, if you won’t talk to me?”

Beautiful dreamy rhodes and ambient pad sounds pave the way for an interesting and very pleasing vocal melody that dips and dives giving this lovely piece its life. Great work!

Jess's beautiful vocals are once again the driving force filled with passion and emotion with the concerned frustration being felt though her chorus line "how will I know, if you won't talk to me"!

Yet another beautiful offering from Jess McAvoy. Jess puts a heap of emotion into her voice as it charges along the melancholic journey. The music is packed with energy giving the song that extra charge while still allowing Jess's beautiful voice to shine through!
