Jaguar Jonze

Jaguar Jonze

​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.

“Straight away, the first time I listened to “Kill Me With Your Love,” it jumped out at me. And when I saw her at BIGSOUND, I couldn’t take my eyes off her; it was amazing. She is a passionate artist who puts herself wholeheartedly into everything, and she always smashes it”

— Declan Byrne to Richard Kingsmill, triple j 2019
