Jesswar is an independent, Brisbane based Hip Hop Artist hailing from Fiji. At 23 she’s driven, hungry and proving it, having already played at some of Australia's most prominent music festival's such as Laneway, Groovin The Moo and Splendour in the Grass, she has proven herself amongst each lineup.
With a love for word play, heavy 808's and 7 years of performing behind her, Jesswar has been compared to MC Lyte one of Hip Hops greats for her clout on stage. Accepted at 16 to the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, Jesswar was the only Rapper in her entire co-hort. This love for the technical and classical mechanics of music shines in her ear for unusual instrumentals, phrasing and brazen stage presence.
She is as ferocious as she is fearless and commands audiences when her hands are on the mic. 2019 will see her set to release her "Savage E.P" through Australian Hip Hop giants Golden Era Records. Jesswar has been a poised hunter waiting for her moment, from 2017-2019 her meteoric rise has shown she has the back bone and stomach for everything this industry has to offer. She's stepped up to the plate and Jesswar is defiantly not backing down.

The Au Review
"With the swag and flow of an artist with years’ more experience in the
bag, the QLD artist had the confidence behind her lyrics showing in
"Jesswar is automatic attitude as fuck. A sawn-off with bodies on it
— not seen since MC Lyte. Jesswar and her all-girl get-up has the
tent-like stage doors blown off"
Strictly For The Heads
"JESSWAR’s control over the microphone when she performs live is reminiscent of some of the greatest MCs to ever grace the mic; she brings unwavering energy and a myriad of party songs to the stage.
Being tipped as one of the hottest up-and-coming artists in Australia by several outlets has only made her more in-demand, and 2017 looks to be the year that she stops playing supports and starts getting supported."
