Bio

Melbourne-based artist JXCKY has experienced the highs and lows of relationships, and he’s here to capture it all through his music. He blends together soaring pop moments with a R&B twist, and rock and trap elements thrown in there for good measure. If you’re a fan of artists that thrive on authenticity like Taylor Swift and Zayn, as well as artists that explore spiritual complexity like Daniel Caesar and Bruno Major, then you’ll feel at home when listening to JXCKY sing.

Taking influence from literature, JXCKY’s always prided himself on creating worlds within his music. His debut single Lockdown Lover, as well as follow-up What’s So Good About Brandon? synthesised the feeling of love during a pandemic and moving on from a summer fling, into music that was as anthemic as it was relatable.

His first release for 2021, System, is a shift toward a more dark-pop/rock and trap sound. The song sees JXCKY searching for closure, and can be seen as a successor to What’s So Good About Brandon? With the release of an EP on the horizon, JXCKY’s looking to further cement his place in the Australian pop landscape.

Honestly, you made this feel so real that by the song's end I was like... "I'm gonna kill that Brandon kid"

You have really captured what it feels like to mull over why someone you connected so well with has left you for someone else. Although the situation you're singing about is sad, the warm production, the strings section and the way you sing softly and introspectively makes this a catchy, comforting pop song.
