Since emerging as a dynamic breath of fresh air in New Zealand’s hip hop scene, JESSB has taken that early momentum and has created it into a proper whirlwind. Mixing afro-inspired diasporic sounds, both high energy & introspective , JESSB is becoming a force to be reckoned with both at home and around the globe.

Collaborating with acts such as Saweetie, Kranium, G Flip, Stan Walker, Baker Boy and more, JESSB received an MTV European Music Award for Best New Zealand Act in 2019. In 2022, JESSB has been touring globally including playing shows and festivals across Europe and the UK.
