Jess Cornelius Announced on Paul Kelly US/Canada Tour


Jess Cornelius is the New Zealand-born songwriter, singer, and instrumentalist behind Teeth & Tongue. Over the course of four critically-acclaimed albums, Teeth & Tongue gradually morphed from a solo project into a more collaborative 'band-like' affair, culminating in the 2016 album 'Give Up On Your Health', which was released through Dot Dash/Remote Control in Australia and Dot Dash/ Captured Tracks in North America.

The album was nominated for a J Award and the Australian Music Prize, named Album of the Week on 3RRR and Feature Album on Double J, and featured in Rolling Stone US, The Fader and Lena Dunham's Lenny magazine.

Now Jess Cornelius is focusing on a new solo project under her own name, with material that is more stripped back, personal and lyrically direct. Her solo performances showcase her voice and songwriting to full effect as she performs new music from her upcoming release across a 24-date US/Canada tour with Paul Kelly. She is also performing solo headline shows in New York and LA. Her EP, 'Nothing is Lost' is due out in late 2017.

Jess Cornelius has performed at Laneway Festival, Meredith Music Festival, Falls Festival, Boogie, SXSW, CMJ, Perth International Arts Festival and Darwin Festival.

She has toured with Courtney Barnett and Vance Joy and performed as a musical guest on several episodes of SBS Television's 'Rockwiz' series. She has also supported J Mascis, Sons & Daughters, EMA, Juana Molina, The Dodos, The Mountain Goats, the Drones and Laura Marling, and in 2013 was invited to make an EP in public at the National Gallery of Victoria.
