Young Melbourne based songstress Vanessa Eve and her 3-piece punk rock outfit Jaed will release their debut album ‘Dirty Days‘ through Instant Karma in the UK on March 13th.
A childhood spent listening to Veruca Salt, L7, Hole and the Pixies is echoed in her music, but it’s Vanessa’s disarmingly honest and personal lyrics that make this debut release so undeniably unique and exciting. Laced with a wicked black humour, her songs betray an insight into the struggle of a young woman who, at the age of 16, was forced out of home by an abusive father and left to live on the streets of Melbourne with a drug habit to feed.
