Shot For Sneakers: Asha Jefferies
Purple Sneakers has teamed up with emerging photographer Joseph Crackett of ONLY ODD to hand pick and shoot some of the hottest artists performing at this year’s BIGSOUND. The series, titled #SHOTFORSNEAKERS, focuses on Purple Sneakers and Only Odd’s shared passion of emerging artists. Over the coming weeks we’ll be revealing selections from the shoots, shot by Joseph in Brisbane’s Winn Lane.
Today, we’re very excited to share ASHA JEFFERIES.
Creating roots-driven indie pop, Brissy’s Asha Jefferies has had a bloody smashing year. Delivering two dazzling slices of her signature brand of embodied storytelling, she gave us ‘Everybody Talks’ and ‘Chaos’. Her sound exercises vulnerability, yet she’s totally mastered poising these explosive instrumentals against her emotionally charged lyrics. This juxtaposition is quite defining of her work, and topped off with the nature of her vocals, it really makes for a distinctive project.
She headed to BIGSOUND, is currently on tour supporting Robbie Miller, smashed a co-headline tour with Eli Schoen, supported Thelma Plum AND is currently working on an EP set to be out sometime next year.
Do yourself a favour, and get acquainted.
