She-Riff is back for volume 6: Featuring AYLA, Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers, and Okinawa Girls. The night kicks off at Transit Bar at 8pm and entry is $10. 





Ayla has achieved incredible things in her short time on the planet. In 2014, at just 18 years of age, Ayla released ‘Wish I Was’ which immediately gained attention with Australian radio. The end of 2014 saw ‘Wish I Was’ come in at #15 on triple j’s most played list; as well as gaining traction with European radio, resulting in a distribution deal with EGO Records in Italy (Emma Louise, The Jezabels).

Her next two singles ‘Waiting’ and ‘When The World Ends’ also picked up high rotation on triple j – Ayla then released her first EP When The World Ends and toured Australia – twice. 
In 2016 – Ayla performed at Woodford & The Big Pineapple Festivals, and supported Asta, Husky, and Kate Miller Heidke on her national tour. Her single ‘Like The Other Kids’ was released in September 2016 and added to high rotation on triple j - Ayla toured nationally to capacity headline and festival audiences. 

Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers (TJJT) are a group of five 16 year old girls, determined to spice up the capital with some funky tunes. Since July 2015, Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers have been played on triple j multiple times, soon aiming to release their EP after raising nearly $8000 through Pozible. Thanks to the generosity of those supporting them and their love for music, TJJT's music will finally, soon, be released!! 

TJJT are so excited to be part of She-Riff for a second time, having the best experience the first time ‘round, and can't wait for the rest of the year! 

Okinawa Girls are a year-old Canberra two-piece band, featuring Laura Milkovits of The Baby Shakers fame, and Nathan Gubler, who has previously performed solo as The Blade Winner. Drawing inspiration from unwanted dissonances, cherry blossoms and the Eastern Bloc, they are tirelessly working towards that sainted middle-ground between infectious pop and unbearable racket. Having recently performed at the National Folk Festival with Canberra's poet laureate, Andrew Galan, they are currently hunkering down in Brick Lane under the tutelage of musical heavyweight Shoeb Ahmad, piecing together a record to be released later in the year.
