HEADLINE: JESS RIBEIRO

Jess Ribeiro is an award winning singer songwriter inspired by artists as diverse as The Velvet Underground to Dusty Springfield. She has been compared to the likes of Karen Dalton and Cat Power and has supported and performed with artists including Nick Cave, Steve Earle and Tim Rogers.

No stranger to critical acclaim, Ribeiro’s 2012 debut, My Little River, was awarded ABC Radio National Album of the Year, Best Country Album at the 2012 AIR Awards and was shortlisted for the prestigious Australian Music Prize. Her most recent album Kill it Yourself , produced by acclaimed musician/producer Mick Harvey, dives headlong into hazy rock, landscape ambience and melodious 60’s psych and has already garnered a number of awards and critical acclaim including being shortlisted for the 2016 AMP Award.

Most recently Jess has performed at Meredith Music Festival, Riverboats Music Festival and St. Kilda Festival. Her NGV performance will be her first back in the country after a tour of Europe.
