Jelly Oshen

Folk / Acoustic


6:00 pm - Sunday, 21 May

Cairns troubadour Jelly Oshen has been dropping a steady stream of R&B flavoured bedroom-pop singles since his debut in 2019.

A lyricist by the age of 8, and a multi-instrumentalist by the age 12, Jelly Oshen (pronounced ‘ocean’) found his singer songwriter calling at 14 and has an ocean of material in the bank. Lyrics that stick, his songs transfix, where lo-fi styles meet a production sweet spot. If you want to understand Jelly Oshen think Bruno Mars and Rex Orange County meeting up with Troye Sivan and Frank Ocean… add a little island flava and you get Jelly Oshen.

With PNG/African/Chinese/Ambon-Indo and Russian blood flowing through his veins Jelly is a multi-cultural cocktail with a vibe that lifts the spirit. Born into a musical family and growing up surrounded by musicians, it makes sense when you see the old soul inside of this pure authentic music baby, his melodies and lyrics invoke the feeling and passion of someone with many more years of seasoning behind them.
