Inspired by Haley Blais’ lyricism in her song ‘Coolest Fucking Bitch In Town’, ‘Brand New Bitch’ is a careening joyride to usher in an age of freedom, pleasure and discovery, with all the vigour of Vanessa Carlton’s “1000 Miles”. Asha shares, “This song is about the pull to become a better, newer version of myself.”


EGO RIDE, the debut album, is a self-portrait of Asha Jefferies in motion. At 24, she displays an uncharacteristically lucid sense of self-awareness. “Looking back, I realised that a lot of the narratives throughout the album are tied to my ego - whether that’s moments where I felt on top of the world or totally crumbled.”


Jefferies’ first LP is far from the beginning of her artistic output. The Brisbane-based songwriter and frog enthusiast has released two EPs, shared stages with Julia Jacklin and Lord Huron, and played festival slots at BIGSOUND, Bluesfest and many more. In recognition of her burgeoning career, Asha has earned accolades such as a Queensland Music Award and has been a finalist in both the Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition and the International Songwriting Competition (ISC).



ASHA JEFFERIES EGO RIDE TOUR

Fri 26th April - Workers Club, Naarm/Melbourne

Sat 27th April - Waywards, Eora/Sydney

Fri 3rd May - Valley Loft, Meanjin/Brisbane



The album was recorded by Asha’s long-term collaborator Sam Cromack (Ball Park Music) at Prawn Records in the inner north of Brisbane. Across the album’s ten tracks, Jefferies revisits two years of words and actions on loop - choices to speak or to stay silent, moments of stepping into or retreating from change.


Out on 12th April 2024 through Nettwerk Music Group, the collection of ten songs will speak to an audience of deeply feeling listeners searching for the courage to take a step of faith without knowing where it will lead.
