Sewing twang, lyrical wit and late-night musings into a captivating country-soul heart, Hana and Jessie-Lee’s Bad Habits craft sauntering, hook-laden tapestries drenched in rock-and-roll swagger.
With major award nominations to their name (Best Country Artist, SA Music Awards; Live Voice of the Year, National Live Music Awards) and backed by a growing catalogue of high-profile supports (Jason Isbell (USA), Eilen Jewell (USA), Cold Chisel, and more), fronting partnership Hana Brenecki and Jessie-Lee Zubkevych demand attention in ways that only the most impressive musicians can: not through force, but with a tantalising skill and restraint.
Hana Brenecki’s searing, sophisticated and effortlessly dexterous vocals pierce the core of songs rich in the very reasons why country-soul music is so darn affecting in the first place. What’s more, you heard it here first: no-one plays guitar quite like Jessie-Lee Zubkevych.
Hana and Jessie-Lee’s Bad Habits have appeared live onstage at Tamworth Country Music Festival, WOMADelaide, Out On The Weekend, Brunswick Music Festival, Adelaide Guitar Festival, and more.
The long and short of it? Hana and Jessie-Lee’s Bad Habits are one for the ages. You’d better be in front of that stage.
