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.“The proud owner of an awesome set of pipes”(Drunkenwerewolf.com). 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. Her mini EP titled "Not Easy" was released on The Animal Farm label on Sept 9th, 2016, and was followed by the release of her single 'Someone' in March of 2017. ESSIE is currently mixing her next single, set for release in April 2018.
