Jess Cornelius (AU/NZ Single Tour)
w/ BATTS + Sudden Debt
TICKETS $15+BF ONLINE, $20 ON THE DOOR
Jess Cornelius’s latest single, “No Difference,” was featured by NPR’s All Songs Considered as well as Paste Magazine, Brooklyn Vegan, Hype Machine and Uproxx, who called it “a striking stateside introduction.” In keeping with Cornelius’s continual and unflinching exploration of her own experience and relationship to the world, ‘No Difference’ is part fatalistic resignation, part zen-leaning self-help mantra. It was added to Gorilla vs Bear’s Best Songs of 2019 playlist and Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist, and reached #1 on the AMRAP Community Radio Chart in Australia.
Now based in LA, New Zealand-born and raised Jess Cornelius grew up, at least musically, in Melbourne, where she released three critically acclaimed albums with her project Teeth & Tongue, receiving nominations for the Australian Music Prize and a J-Award in 2016. Renowned for the seductive state of ease and intensity she occupies in live performance, Cornelius won crowds the world over playing alongside Courtney Barnett, J. Mascis, Vance Joy, Paul Kelly and Laura Marling, and was as well as at Meredith Music Festival, Laneway Festival, Falls Festival and SXSW. Shape-shifting through a variety of roles, Cornelius displays an intimidating command of her own songs, delivering powerful performances of brutal simplicity and rawness of feeling.
With ’No Difference' Cornelius gives a taste of the lushly fleshed out and fully-realised new material to come. Her forthcoming album was recorded in Los Angeles with collaborators Steven Urgo (War On Drugs), Stella Mozgawi (Warpaint), harpist Mary Lattimore, and producer Tony Buchen (The Preatures, Tim Finn, Montaigne), and includes special appearances by Justin Sullivan (Kevin Morby, Night Shop) and Laura Jean Anderson.
For this special one-off performance (and the only Australian show she’ll play this year) Jess will be celebrating the release of “No Difference” and it’ accompanying video. She’ll be joined onstage by video director Thomas Hyland (on bass!) and Lachlan Denton on drums.
With special guests BATTS + Sudden Debt.
