Pheno (pronounced fee-no) released her debut EP Dragon Year in May 2017 as part of VIVID festival and was lauded by Happy Mag as “...giving Australia the art-pop injection it deserves, and… “attractive, bold pop”. Born in Canberra, Pheno (aka Jess Green) returned to make the ACT her home in 2016 after many years working in Sydney and on the national scene, as a freelance guitarist and singer. In 2017 Pheno was awarded an Australia Council CMP Touring grant, which saw the solo show and three piece band tour 3 states, and Canberra audiences have seen Pheno at the 2016 Tedx, regular shows at Smith’s and The Street, and at the transit bar supporting Moaning Lisa and Odette. Most recently Pheno performed at Canberra Theatre for the “Hyperspace” Series, as well as at the Art Not Apart Festival, and in May 2019 she supported US indie icon Joan as Policewoman, at the Street Theatre. Performing as a three piece band or solo, Her live show features scorching electric guitar, blissful vocals, and a colourful world of synths and samples. She brings to the stage her unique Art-Pop, with a demented jazz bent, and weaves stories of life, whether just beginning, from under the sea or calling to other worlds. 'Green’s voice is the expressive force – sometimes screaming, sometimes a whisper' Hayden Fritzlaff, BMA Magazine.
"Pheno gives Australia the art-pop injection it deserves on her debut EP Dragon Year"
Isabella Moore, Happy Mag 2017
“Pheno (a.k.a. Jess Green) skillfully evades categorisation on her debut EP, showing off a depth of songwriting and expression that begs to be explored further”
Hayden Fritzlaff BMA Magazine 2017
“Dragon Year has been described as “art pop” and it really is, according to the most literal evocations of those words. Paint splattering passionately onto a canvas; shapes, and then images, coming BANG into existence. It’s an extraordinary 22 minutes of song craft, achieving in an EP format what many albums desperately grapple for.”
Lyndon Blue - Perth Cool Nights 2017
