Celebrity available for hire, based in Victoria
Jessica Mauboy is enjoying another "career" year. Though this time, it's been a "global" year. In just a matter of months, Mauboy's star went stratospheric thanks to her starring performance as "Julie" in the "The Sapphires," she cut a new album, and now she's ready to take it on the road for her first solo national tour.
Right now, the multi-talented artist is one of Australia's hottest young creative exports. And all her energies are focused on music. Jessica opens-up like never before on "Beautiful," her eagerly awaited third album. "Beautiful" is Jessica's most honest album, most confident recording to-date. It's a set that reflects who she is, and where she's come from.
Jessica's story so far is a remarkable one. She grew up in Darwin, and became a national darling thanks to the platform of "Australian Idol's" fourth season, back in 2006. Her debut 2008 album "Been Waiting" scored double platinum sales and yielded seven ARIA Award nominations. Jessica's collaboration-crammed follow-up "Get ‘Em Girls" was a top 10 ARIA album and generated four multi-platinum selling singles.
Now, with more than 2million sales in Australia and a trophy cabinet full of awards, Jessica finds herself at the dizzying heights of pop stardom in her homeland. She got there through deftly climbing the ladder. It's a difficult journey, navigated with immense talent, hard work and good instincts.
Jessica admits she's excited, anxious-even, ahead of the release of her new album. "Beautiful" represents a mature Jessica Mauboy. "I've got to the stage where I know what I want to make my music sound like. It has been that process where I've had to sit and be really picky and have a disagreement with myself and my music. I've made the "Real Jess," the real me and I want to be more honest with me before I'm honest with anybody else."
