Everybody Talks | Asha Jefferies

TEDxSydney 2019 · 24 May 2019

Australian musician, Asha Jefferies performs her song, Everybody Talks at TEDxSydney 2019. From the age of 13, Asha has been writing candid songs that detail the feelings and moments of her life in a warm attempt to hold those memories forever. Rising to national attention at a young age with her goosebump-inducing single Honey, Save Me From My Falsehoods, Asha earned the respect of national broadcaster Triple J with Richard Kingsmill praising her unique ability to craft ‘simple songs’ that ‘command attention’.

2018 will go down as the year it all changed for Asha Jefferies. Quietly assembling a team for the first time, she’s no longer the loner with an acoustic (a Fender Mustang is now her weapon of choice) and has recorded new music with Miro Mackie (Cold War Kids, St. Vincent, Bishop Briggs) with a full band in tow (first result of these sessions ‘Everybody Talks’ is out now), polishing up an EP she had thought she’d finished.

Asha Jefferies enters adulthood and this new chapter with the same determined self-assuredness that precedes her every performance, while maintaining the vulnerability and intimacy that’s enamoured fans the nation over since her early teens.
