Jess Cornelius

Teeth & Tongue

Jess Cornelius is the New Zealand-born songwriter, singer and instrumentalist behind Teeth & Tongue. Over the course of four critically-acclaimed albums, Teeth & Tongue gradually morphed from a solo project into a more collaborative ‘band-like’ affair, culminating in the 2016 album ‘Give Up On Your Health’, which was released through Dot Dash/Remote Control in Australia and Dot Dash/ Captured Tracks in North America.

The album was nominated for a J Award and the Australian Music Prize, named Album of the Week on 3RRR and Feature Album on Double J, and featured in Rolling Stone US, The Fader and Lena Dunham’s Lenny magazine.

Now, is focusing on a new solo project under her own name, with material that is more stripped back, personal and lyrically direct. Her solo performances showcase her voice and songwriting to full effect as she performs new music from her upcoming release, out in late 2017.
