Sunday February 28, 2021
Put those phones on charge ISOL-AID is back for another round (the 46th to be exact) and is heading straight to your screens this Sunday February 28. Packed full of musical goodness sure to fill you up before taking on the week ahead we’re serving up everything from a crowd favourite Brissie punk band to the dulcet tones of a medical student by day, TikTok phenom by night, truly something for everyone!
Getting the night started is RICKY ROSEN, a 21 year old student working through a medical degree who just happens to have over half a million TikTok followers. In between classes Ricky has been quietly devoting his free time to working on his music and with Zoom University being the go to this past year he also found time to create a number of viral TikTok videos, kickstarting his music career. With the backing of his new found fans Ricky released his first single ‘Dim the Lights’ in December where he got to show off his hypnotic crooning skills.
JAGUAR JONZE crafts songs of melancholic beauty woven with gun slinging guitar lines and a strikingly rich, yet intimate voice. Born in Japan to a Taiwanese mother and Australian father, Jaguar Jonze is as eclectic as her cultural upbringing oozing influences by the likes of Portishead, The Last Shadow Puppets, Nick Cave and Angel Olsen. An enigmatic yet vulnerable songwriter, Jaguar Jonze delivers defiant ferocity through smoky vocals that shift between fragile and forceful and a mature musicality that provides sweetness through dissonance.
