Eliza Jaye and the Tarts

based singer songwriter who fuses influences such as Kristin Hersh and Divinyls, into something entirely of her own. Currently recording their debut LP Eliza Jaye and The Tarts features Eliza's sister & former Bat For Lashes violinist Anna McInerney. Together they weave their sonic tales of heartache and rum, rebellion & longing, for Van Diemen's Land.

Eliza's arrangements fuse with emotive lyrics from exuberance and anger to heartbreaking melancholy as she delves into the imagery of her roots, bringing the works of great Australian poets and storytellers to touch upon her folk, blues and rock sound...

Eliza Jaye and The Tarts is a four-piece band featuring Eliza's sister & former Bat For Lashes violinist Anna McInerney. Eliza wrote all of the tracks on the EP with Anna in mind as lead instrumentalist. ‘I love playing with Anna’ Eliza states ‘the violin has such a beautiful texture & is so versatile. Anna and I have a sort of musical telepathy and she understands my vision because she has been there the whole way!’ 'Black Heart Rum' was recorded on a farm studio in Sussex. The D.I.Y aesthetic employed by Eliza Jaye and co-producer, engineer and bass player Dean Van Jones ensures a raw and rustic feel to the recordings. "We used vintage valve amps when recording the album" Eliza says "Listen to the track Crimson Lipstick and you can hear the beautiful tremolo of a Vox ac10 twin guitar amp, it's my new baby. The drums were miked up in a huge corrugated iron shed next to the live room and we recorded the vocals and violin in Dean's little farmhouse cottage.
