Jessie Monk is an artist out of GunaiKurnai land in Australia. She sings folk songs inspired by the people she keeps meeting, stories she keeps hearing and thresholds she keeps walking through.

Also a dancer and an actor, Jessie has played in some major musicals in Australia, including David Bowie’s last piece, ‘Lazarus’. In 2019 she toured Israel, solo before moving to Berlin in 2020 where she’s been astounded by her warm welcome to the thriving folk scene.

Chasing the holy grail of albums like Blue and New Skin for the Old Ceremony, from Jessie, you can expect to hear earthy, story-lead folk songs about longing, loving and meeting that stranger in the mirror who continually surprises us.
