Jess Harlen is a new artist who calls Melbourne, Australia home. Her brand of soul/reggae will appeal to fans of Katchafire, Jack Johnson, Donavon Frankenreiter, and Camile Velasco. She is signed to a new subsidary of Obese Records called Plethora, where Harlen will be releasing her Neon Heartache album in February 2010 (just in time to make an impact before Valentine’s Day.)
If you like her and the sound of her music, you should also be introduced to producer Plutonic Lab, who was involved in the entire project. Take a look at some of his credits on his MySpace, and you’ll want to start exploring his work (which you should).
This is the first single from the album, called “Watch The Water”. Then watch out for Harlen in the new year.
