Sticks & Stones Shitty Interview No. 102
Jaleesa Vincent is fucking hard to describe because you’ve never met anyone like her – a quirky & edgy eccentric whose style could not possibly ooze more originality. Jaleesa is an Australian artist, musician & professional surfer. She’s as weird as she is cool. You could find her at the pub tap dancing along with her seven-piece love band Cupid & the Stupids, or, at home in her bedroom making obscure jewellery. Originally from the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, she now resides on the outskirts of Byron Bay in New South Wales. At just age twenty-one, it’s clear this is the very beginning for Jaleesa.
