Jezzabell Doran

Jezzabell Doran, this scrumptious little morsel of a sex kitten is set to release her new EP featuring remixes and the original of the hit song Sleepless. The song rose to fame with its remix by award winning producer Flume. However, Jezzabell has stripped it back to melt people in its original form, with its beautiful use of acoustic guitar and soulful vocals. The focus of the EP however, is the song Sleepless remixed by Vanshe Tech. An incredible local producer, who has redefined the song into a more dance orientated feel that will have you singing in the shower in the car – you just won’t be able to get it out of your head.


The song originally written by Jesse Sewell, when both he and Jezzabell were in a two-piece called Anthony for Cleopatra -was picked up by Harley Streten, aka Flume in 2011, where he then entered it onto various competitions and picked up 2nd place. This gained him the attention of independent Label Future Classic. From there, the song was released on his Aria award-winning album of 2012.

Due to the hype around Sleepless, which was the favoured song for promotion and release by Future Classic, Manager Andrew James Hawkins sought out Jezzabell to collaborate with and subsequently organised Vanshe Tech to produce Sleepless and various other remixes by big international artist.

The song speaks of the ultimate struggle of love, power, independence and girl power. A message Jezzabell hopes to make clear and empower her listeners. In a recent interview, Jezzabell described Sleepless and what it actually means to her. ‘The song sleepless is about being alone and sleepless, about guys treating girls like crap and about the struggle to regain self esteem and confidence. Ultimately it is about girl power- not needing a man that makes you feel like you are theirs to keep – making you feel like you would rather be alone then have them control you,’

The boys eat, drink and a lot of other things together, as self professed lovers of Motley Crew the boys typify the partying life style which can be seen thoughtfully portrayed in their music. However, surprisingly enough, it is ultimately this partying lifestyle that  led the boys to take their music seriously and carve out a path of success. The songs on the EP are reflectively written, as they follow the story of the boys striving to make their mark and the ups and downs along the way with dodgy producers and con artist making the ride to success just that little bit more interesting.
