Jess Ribeiro is destined for Austin, Texas. Today she launches the Pozible Campaign which will hopefully see her get to SXSW 2018. With the launch of this campaign, Jess offers some incredibly exciting and distinctively-Jess rewards, for those who are willing to offer this exciting singer songwriter and her band some assistance!
A super performer and a genuine talent, Jess Ribeiro's performance at SXSW 2018 will be key to her international success. SXSW is an annual media conference that features one of the biggest music industry showcases in the world. SXSW is an essential destination for artists aspiring for international influence and a massive networking hub for industry professionals.
2018 will bring the release of Jess Ribeiro's third album. Recorded with producer Ben Edwards ( Julia Jacklin, Marlon Williams, Aldous Harding), at The Sitting Room in Lyttelton, NZ. With the help of musician friends, Jade McCinally (Jade Imagine), and Dave Mudie (Courtney Barnett), New music from Jess Ribeiro is on the horizon!
Additionally, Ribeiro and band have accepted an offer to perform at Canadian Music Week from May 7th-13th. With the release of Jess Ribeiro's third album later this year, SXSW andCanadian Music Week will be a supremely opportune time to showcase her music.
The total cost of sending a five-piece band to SXSW is upward of $50,000. The marker for Jess Ribeiro's Pozible Campaign has been set to $10,000, meaning that the funds raised will go toward covering just a portion of the total cost.

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.
Jess’s debut album Kill It Yourself (August 2015, Barely Dressed/Remote Control) was produced byMick 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.
