About Microwave Jenny: After a chance meeting backstage over 10 years ago, husband and wife duo Tessa Nuku and Brendon Boney discovered their shared drive to create smiles through music. The pair joined forces as the folk-jazz sensation Microwave Jenny – a decision that saw them win an APRA Professional Development Award. Microwave Jenny’s catchy melodies and unique on stage connection have won them a solid fan base, transforming them festival favourites at events such as The Woodford Folk Festival, Peats Ridge Festival, The Dreaming Festival, Festival of the Sun and Bluesfest. The duo have performed internationally at the Red House Theatre, Taiwan and The Aussie BBQ, UK, and written music for film and television, including Bran Nue Dae, Winners & Losers and Offspring. Recently signed by Cooking Vinyl Music, Microwave Jenny are hard at work on their next release due out in late 2018.
