Jed & Hera, a musical duo described as ‘Street Folk’, have been creating some of Christchurch’s best music together for a little over a year. The two collaborated for the first time in September 2011 whilst Hera was on tour with Jed´s other musical project, Christchurch band ‘House of Mountain’. The song “Issues” was the first song the duo wrote together having ‘jammed’ the song in the afternoon and performed it that night in concert, they then continued to captivate audiences around New Zealand for the rest of the 50 date tour with tremendous success. From these humble beginnings the duo have now become one of the most promising musical enterprises to come out of post quake Christchurch.
A ‘Jed & Hera’ concert is filled with uplifting yet bittersweet songs; a crafted performance that is charming yet not without its dark moments; and a pleasure on the ears with clever lyricism mixed with beautiful melodies and vocal harmonies.
