Recently nominated for the Environmental Music Prize for her song In Love With This Place, Jess Ribeiro has cemented herself as one of the Australian underground’s most engaging and unpredictable creative forces and her evolution is only just beginning.
A shape-shifting musical enigma, The near-untouchable quality of Jess’s recorded output is astonishingly consistent and the wait for new music is always worthwhile.
2012’s My Little River was an award-winning folk-country triumph. 2015’s Kill It Yourself was a slow-burning indie-noire which left reviewers scrambling for superlatives. 2019 saw the release of LOVE HATE and a growing audience overseas with 4 stars from the UK Times. Ribeiro has supported artists such as Angel Olsen, Kurt Vile, Aldous Harding and Nick Cave.
Her songs are cinematic in scope: music that travels, across deserts like a Western, through city streets like Film Noir. Narrative and poetic, Ribeiro’s lyrics are rhythmic and evocative, conjuring images that are dimly-lit, but nonetheless electric.
