BIGSOUND logoBIGSOUND – Australia’s festival/conference knees-up to celebrate the best in new, homegrown music – will be upon us in QLD’s Fortitude Valley from September 3-6, 2019. In the lead-up, we’re putting a few questions to the most promising names who’ll be performing. Click here to see more chats with the acts we think will own this year’s BIGSOUND!


Born in Japan, raised by Taiwanese and Australian parents and now Oz-residing, Jaguar Jonze’s music is wistful and lush – but it’s wearing cuban-heeled boots, and those boots have spurs.

What sets your music apart?

It’s a whole bunch of contrasts it’s fast-paced, with slow melodies. It’s fierce but fragile. It’s heavy sounding, but lulling.

Which movie scene would your latest single suit?

Anything Quentin Tarantino, I’ll take it. Haha.

Give us your best useless fact – about yourself, or the world.

Useless fact for the world:

A coconut can be considered as a fruit, nut and seed.

Useless fact about myself:

I consider coconuts to be the best fruit, nut and seed for being a versatile power player.

What can we expect from you at BIGSOUND?

Coconuts on stage. No, not really, but I’ll be throwing down my all to give an energetic performance.

Which BIGSOUND acts are you looking forward to seeing?

Milan Ring, First Beige good friends who are also doing their first BIGSOUND showcases.

What should we look out for on your post-BIGSOUND horizon?
