As most are winding down for the year, emmerging Brisbane singer/songwriter Asha Jefferies is preparing for a MASSIVE 2019, with the HUGE announcement of her highly anticipated first ever EP with an accompanying tour and booking deal with Select Music.
The news follows a mammoth year, with Asha announcing the Hold Yourself Together EP, which wil be released on Febuary 1st before she embarks on her first-ever national headline tour just one week later, assembled by new booking agent Rob Giovannoni of Select Music.
2018 will go down as a monumental year for the young artist, punctuated with two packed-out BIGSOUND performances and first full triple j addition for current single 'Everybody Talks'. To celebrate the news, Asha has recorded a live and acoustic piano version of the song, which was shot live at The Tivoli in Brisbane and offers an intimate new look at the song.
The six-track EP - Hold Yourself Together - delivers a clear snapshot of period in time in Asha's life. Single 'Chaos' kicked off the cycle in early '18 and garnered immense love from triple j Unearthed and community radio while being shortlisted for Vanda & Young's Songwriting Competition and winning an Unearthed/NIDA competition to create a music video. 'Everybody Talks' came next and was immediately added to full triple j rotation the same week she would play her first performances at BIGSOUND, instantly making her an essential artist to catch at the annual conference.
The EP was recorded over the space of 12 months or so and features musicianship of Asha's live band and the production of local Simon Nelson, LA-based Miro Mackie, Demetry Malahoff and Asha herself. These six songs work effortlessly as a perfectly-rounded EP and a huge promise of what's to come from the mind of Asha, who has already begun writing her debut album.
Asha Jefferies' debut EP Hold Yourself Together is out independently Friday, February 1st and can be pre-ordered and pre-saved now. Her national Hold Yourself Together Tour commences February 8 in Brisbane - tickets are on sale now.
