Melbourne's Jess Ribeiro is excited to announce that she will be bringing her solo songs to living rooms and backyards across Australia. Presented by the much-loved Parlour Gigs, Jess is available to book to play an intimate solo set for you and yours, private and invite-only, from February 2-26, in South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.
Jess Ribeiro’s songs are cinematic in scope: it’s 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. Rendered in the stunning intimacy of a living-room or backyard show, these songs will feel all the more immediate and affecting.
Jess’s debut album Kill It Yourself (August 2015, Barely Dressed/Remote Control) was produced by Mick Harvey, a founding member of The Birthday Party and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, whose production for PJ Harvey drew Ribeiro’s attention and admiration.
Preparing to record the follow up to Kill It Yourself, Jess will be playing new songs from her upcoming album, alongside favourites from previous releases. These intimate will be the final opportunity to see Jess play in Australia before she disappears overseas to record.
