Jess Spahr is a musician from the south of Sydney with an electro-pop style and new music on the way.
She picked up the violin and piano when she was six years old and from then she has delved into different genres of music that inspire her, from electro music or Irish jigs.
Currently, Jess Spahr has released two EP’s, with singles such as Betray Me, Tensions and Art of Leaving receiving airplay on Triple J Unearthed and Triple J. Her track Art of Leaving has received comparisons to the work of English band, Morcheeba and major influence, London Grammar. Jess Spahr has received vocal comparisons to English singer, Lily Allen.
During COVID social distancing in 2019, Jess utilised her time to write multiple songs, including her new single Groundhog Day. The song is different to her past music taking inspiration to the works of Florence and the Machine, and Kate Bush. Jess Spahr said, “Groundhog Day was written about the ongoing slog of isolation in COVID. I know this song will resonate with people since we all stared out that window day to day thinking ‘this is so Groundhog Day!’”
For this song, she collaborated with her school friend, producer James Ellercamp. Jess Spahr said, “it was awesome working with James on this one, we are pretty goofy when collaborating and recording, but he knew exactly what path I wanted to take with this single and it turned out awesome.”
On April 23 her single, Groundhog Day will be released which will be followed by the launch party for her single on the 13 May at LazyBones in Marrickville.
