Emerging into the scene in 2017, Yugambeh/Kombumerri based artist Jesswar has quickly established themselves in the industry as a blended powerhouse, weaving lyrical genius and effortlessly merging genres. Their sound is constantly evolving; fusing Hip-Hop, pop, and hard-hitting beats into an all-encompassing sound spectrum. Strong in their identity, Jesswar has created their own path to success with a relentless work ethic for going after what they want.

In 2021, the Sydney Morning Herald described Jesswar’s debut EP ‘TROPIXX’ as “a moment impossible to ignore” and was celebrated by Waevz Au as “one of the strongest EPs in Australian hip hop”. Their electric on (and off) stage presence plus original sound has seen them enthralling audiences across the country.

Their live achievements already include a SOLD OUT East Coast tour, Australian headline shows, and performances at Splendour in the Grass, Groovin the Moo, and Laneway. They’ve collaborated with the likes of Erica Banks, Godlands, Tasha the Amazon & Papertoy.

With Fijian-Australian roots, Jesswar - winner of the Gold Coast Music Awards Break out Artist of the Year (2021), Queensland Music Awards Best Hip Hop release (2021) and APRA Professional Development Award for Best Hip-Hop, Rap, Soul, RnB Artist (2021) - keeps their values at the forefront. Pushing past cliches to create a nuanced representation, their existence is a celebration of chosen self-expression.
