Jackie Onassis

Introducing Jackie Onassis, comprised of Raph Zarkov and Kai, two long time high-school friends turned band mates who blend their wealth of experience to create unique and compelling music.

Drawing from their diverse musical interests, they make interesting and enigmatic hip hop. Accomplished programmers and multi-instrumentalists, the duo packs enough general music nerdiness to take the hip hop road less travelled.

Having met at high school at the dawn of the millennium, it wasn’t until 2011 that Onassis was conceived, after years of travel and study.

Complex and evolving music that never wants to sit still, accompanies tales of fun, love, introspection, university girls and youthful indiscretion. The lyrics have been written over several years. As such, the music captures the excited energies of adolescence, while still being able to analyse and reflect with maturity.

Jackie Onassis’ debut album is at once brash and refined, energetic and sombre and will certainly surprise many as a complex and sophisticated first release.
