Alternative / Rock
ESSIE is an alt/rock guitar player and vocalist from Perth, Western Australia. Her signature sound is a confident mix of bluesy guitar chops and soaring vocals.
ESSIE's debut EP Run Red and single Sugar Rush drew on an earthy mix of influences from The Black Keys, U2 and Gin Wigmore, as well as Australian talents Little Birdy and Eskimo Joe. Hailed in press as “alternative rock with a superb 70s twist” (Fireworks Magazine), the success of these DIY releases prompted ESSIE to relocate to London in 2015 to pursue a career in music.
Performing with her trio, ESSIE is a regular in the capital's clubs, where she is building a devoted fan base enthralled with her raw, confessional songwriting and assertive blues guitar.
