Two newly recorded cover songs -Sister Golden Hair' and -I'd Really Love To See You Tonight' will also feature on the album, as well as a special acoustic recording of -Say Something', the song that Jess & Matt performed in the five seat challenge that earned them their place in the Top 12 this year!
'We cannot wait to be releasing our debut album! These songs have inspired us and the re-recorded versions are our own interpretation, so we are incredibly excited to share them with you." – Jess Dunbar
Jess & Matt's single -Nothing Matters' was written by Australia's premium songwriting duo, Anthony Egizii and David Musumeci aka DNA Songs, and Adam Argyle. DNA Songs have written numerous multi-platinum singles including Grammy award winner and global superstar Ricky Martin's -Come With Me,' Jessica Mauboy's -Never Be The Same,' and most recently Delta Goodrem's massive #1 ARIA Single, -Wings'.
Jess Dunbar and Matt Price have only been making music together for the last 12 months. The 24-year-olds started out as solo artists but became a duo a year ago before impressing audiences at The X Factor auditions with their acoustic version of Vance Joy's -Georgia'. Both hailing from Sydney, NSW, they have each been slogging it out on the pubs and clubs circuit for the last five years, with Jess growing up listening to 70s folk music from the likes of James Taylor and Carole King whilst Matt was influenced by blues and R&B legends such as Stevie Wonder.
