Jess Ribeiro is undoubtedly one of this country’s most gifted and enigmatic songwriters, a master of genre, nonchalance, double-entendre, intuition and melody – all of which is present on her new track ‘Wildflowers’ – released today via Barely Dressed Records/Remote Control Records.
On ‘Wildflowers‘ Jess Ribeiro has teamed up again with legendary producer and multi-instrumentalistMick Harvey (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds) to deliver a stunning song. Soulful and poignant in its message, ‘Wildflowers’ was originally written for the new ABC TV show The Unmissables which follows the family and friends of three long-term missing Australians and pairs them with an artist to help share their story and facilitate a work of public portraiture. ‘Wildflowers’ was premiered on The Unmissables on Saturday night.
Jess Ribeiro’s songs are cinematic in scope: it is music that travels across open plains like a Western and through city streets after dark like Film-Noir. ‘Wildflowers’ is no exception, applying her extraordinary skills as a performer and writer to this heart-breaking real-life subject matter, Ribeiro explores human connection, grief and hope all in one.
Jess Ribeiro is at the tail end of her Australian tour – having just played to a sold out Northcote Social Club in Melbourne on the weekend. With a new band in tow – try and catch one of her final shows (listed below).
