Asha Jefferies:

Recorded at The Triffid, Brisbane, 19th March 2019.

Asha is an artist who has been around for a while, commanding audiences with her honest and brutal lyrics combined with a striking vocal presence.

First releasing a single in 2016 called ‘Honey, Save Me From My Falsehoods’, Asha garnered national attention and was still under age as she played some of the biggest stages in the country.  Asha has been refining her sound over the years growing as an artist and in 2017 released the single ‘Coburg’ just before 2018s massive hit ‘Chaos’. Assembling a band, playing consistently and releasing singles to a wide fanbase cumulated in the release of her debut EP ‘Hold Yourself Together’ which was released in February 2019.

When Asha performs, she can cradle you in the palm of her hand as she weaves these intimate stories that are relatable but also make you feel like your gaining a true insight into her feelings.

Recorded live at the The Triffid on the 9th of March 2019.

 

June Low:

Recorded at The Bearded Lady, Brisbane, 10th May 2018.

June Low are a four piece band from Brisbane who perform a style of indie rock with deep earthy undertone.  The group is formed from the songwriter Emma White on vocals and she assembled some amazing players to create this band; Brian Mann on lead guitar, Jane Elliot on bass and Sean Clift on percussion. They released their debut album in 2015 called ‘Exhale’, and have followed it up with ‘Heart Gallop’ in 2017 and recently with ‘The Letter’, which was released in March of 2019.  

They have a sound that feels nostalgic, as if you’ve always known them even when they release new tracks, they nestle in a place deep in your heart. They self described themselves as best listened to with a glass of red and hey, drink responsibly but maybe it wouldn’t go astray.

Recorded live at The Bearded Lady on the 10th of May 2018.
