Biography

1989–2006: Early life, beginnings, and Australian Idol

Jessica Hilda Mauboy was born on 4 August 1989 and raised in Darwin, Northern Territory.[4] Her father, Ferdi, is of Indonesian descent who came from West Timor,[5] and her mother, Therese, is an Indigenous Australian.[5][6][7][8] Mauboy is the youngest of five children and from an early age, she was involved in the local church choir with her grandmother.[7][9] Her home was described as the "noisiest house on the block", with her mother often singing, her father playing guitar and the rest of the family displaying their passion for music.[7] Mauboy attended Sanderson High School in Darwin.[10]

Mauboy with Damien Leith at the Australian Idol grand final.

At the age of fourteen, Mauboy's talents were exposed through the Telstra Road to Tamworth competition at the 2004 Tamworth Country Music Festival.[11] As the first winner of the competition, Mauboy travelled to Sydney to perform[7] and scored a recording deal with Sony Music Australia.[4] She then released a country-inspired rendition of the Cyndi Lauper's hit "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun".[4] A video for her version of the song had a release;[12] however, the song went nowhere and Mauboy returned to Darwin until auditioning for TV talent show, Australian Idol, in 2006.[4]

She auditioned for the fourth season of Australian Idol in Alice Springs, singing Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing".[9] Her audition impressed all three judges, and she progressed through to the semi-finals.[9] Following the semi-final process, Mauboy had advanced through to the top twelve. The media cited her previous Sony contract as grounds for dismissal, but since the contract had expired, Australian Idol producers refused to remove her from the show.[4] Throughout the series, Mauboy continued to impress the judges with her performances. In the final eleven week, following her rendition of Kelly Clarkson's "Walk Away", judge Kyle Sandilands commented on Mauboy's weight, that if she wished to succeed in the music industry, she should "lose the jelly belly".[13] Mauboy appeared stunned by the comment.[13] In an interview with Who magazine's Alicia Neil, two years after the comment was made, Mauboy stated "I kind of took it as a joke ... I look back on it as a positive thing – it made me a stronger person."[14] In the final ten week, Mauboy received the first touchdown of the season from judge Mark Holden for her rendition of Christina Aguilera's hit, "Beautiful".[1] During the final nine week, Mauboy had a sore throat that resulted in a mediocre rendition of Phil Collins' "Another Day in Paradise" and near-elimination, which landed her in the bottom three.[4] Following that week, she never landed in the bottom three again, and ended up progressing through to the final show with Damien Leith.[15] The grand finale was held on 27 November at the Sydney Opera House.[8] After the viewer votes had been tallied it was announced that Mauboy was runner-up to Leith.[16]

2006–08: The Journey and Young Divas

In December 2006, Jessica Mauboy signed a recording contract with Sony Music Australia – two weeks after the fourth season of Australian Idol ended.[17] In 2007, Mauboy appeared in advertisements for the shampoo product, Head & Shoulders.[18] She released her debut live album, The Journey in Australia on 24 February 2007.[19] The album was a two-disc package. Disc one contained re-recorded covers of the selected songs Mauboy performed as part of the top twelve on Australian Idol, while disc two included a DVD of her performances on the series.[19] The Journey debuted at number four on the ARIA Albums Chart and was certified gold by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA).[3][20]

In September 2007, Mauboy joined as the new member of the girl group Young Divas, replacing one of the group's original members, Ricki-Lee Coulter, who had left in June to resume her solo career.[21] Their second studio album, New Attitude, was released on 24 November.[22] Its lead single, "Turn Me Loose", was released on 3 November,[23] and reached number 15 on the ARIA Singles Chart.[24] The album debuted at number 10 on the ARIA Albums Chart and was certified gold.[20][24]

Meanwhile in March 2008, Mauboy signed on to the Australian Government In2Oz program, designed to promote closer ties with Indonesia. As a part of the program, she travelled to Indonesia for a three day trip performing around the country, including an appearance on Indonesian Idol, singing Beyoncé's "Crazy in Love" and "Sempurna" with former Indonesian Idol contestants Mike, Judika and Lucky.[25] It was during this time that Mauboy had begun to work on her first solo studio album. Following her three day trip from Indonesia, she returned to Sydney for a week-long recording session.[25] In August, Mauboy announced that after a year with the Young Divas, she had decided to quit in order to concentrate on her solo career.[26] Founding member Paulini Curuenavuli had also decided to depart, leaving Kate DeAraugo and Emily Williams as the only remaining members.[26] Their manager David Champion stated that the group would undergo a third line-up change following the departures of Mauboy and Curuenavuli, with a third album to be released later in the year.[26] However both DeAraugo and Williams subsequently resumed their solo careers, and the group officially disbanded.

2008–09: Been Waiting

A publicity shot of Mauboy in July 2009.

In late 2008, Jessica Mauboy re-located from Darwin to Sydney and prepared for the release of her debut studio album, Been Waiting.[27] It was released on 22 November; it peaked at number 11 and was certified double platinum for shipments of 140,000 units.[3][28][29] Mauboy co-wrote six of the album's songs, which were produced by Audius Mtawarira, Israel Cruz, Jonas Jeberg, Cutfather, Adam Reily, Fingaz and Kwamé.[30] The album received positive reviews from critics. Davey Boy of Sputnikmusic gave the album three out of five stars and wrote that it was an "impressive debut which suggests that there could indeed be quality music to look forward to in the future as she matures and gains experience".[31]

"Running Back", featuring American rapper Flo Rida, was released as the album's lead single on 19 September.[32] It peaked at number three and was certified double platinum.[3][33] The album's second single, "Burn", became Mauboy's first number-one single,[3] and was certified platinum.[34] In February 2009, Mauboy signed with UK record label Ministry of Sound.[35] The album's title track was released as the third single on 6 March.[36] The song peaked at number 12 and was certified gold.[3][34] The following singles, "Because" and "Up/Down", peaked at numbers nine and 11, respectively,[3] and both were certified gold.[34] In April 2009, Mauboy teamed up with Bloom Cosmetics to create two designer collection nail polishes,[37] which included shades of sangria red and metallic green.[37][38] Two dollars from the sale of each of the nail polish bottles was donated to Children's Hospital Foundations Australia to support the research into childhood illness.[38] Been Waiting was released in Japan on 22 April 2009,[39] and reached number 138 on the Japanese Albums Chart.[40]

At the 2009 Deadly Awards, Mauboy won three awards in the categories of 'Female Artist of the Year', 'Album of the Year' for Been Waiting, and 'Single Release of the Year' for "Burn".[41] Along with Flo Rida, Mauboy served as a support act for Beyoncé on the Australian leg of her I Am... Tour in September 2009.[42] At the 2009 ARIA Music Awards, Mauboy earned seven nominations for the album and singles; she was nominated for 'Highest Selling Album', 'Best Pop Release', 'Breakthrough Artist Album', Best Female Artist, 'Breakthrough Artist Single' for "Running Back", and 'Highest Selling Single' for "Running Back" and "Burn".[43] Eventually, Mauboy won 'Highest Selling Single' for "Running Back".[44]

2010–present: Acting debut, Get 'Em Girls and third studio album

In January 2010, Jessica Mauboy had a starring role in the film adaptation of the 1990 Aboriginal musical Bran Nue Dae.[45] The film was directed by Rachel Perkins and also starred Ernie Dingo, Geoffrey Rush, Missy Higgins, and Deborah Mailman.[46] In the film, Mauboy played the role of Rosie, a local church singer who has a love interest for a school boy named Willie (played by Rocky McKenzie).[45] Five days after Bran Nue Dae was issued, Mauboy signed to Universal Music for an exclusive worldwide long-term publishing agreement.[47] In April 2010, Mauboy was part of the Byron Bay's Bluesfest along with many other national and international acts.[48] In May 2010, she collaborated with four other international artists representing their continents—Sean Kingston representing America, Jody Williams representing Africa, Tabitha Nauser (Asia), Steve Appleton (Europe), with Mauboy representing Oceania—on a song titled "Everyone".[49] The song was initially recorded to be used as the theme song for the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics.[49] Mauboy, Williams, Nauser and Appleton performed the song at the opening of the Youth Olympics held in Singapore on 14 August 2010.[49] Kingston was unable to attend the performance, due to a passport mix-up.[50]

During the 2010 ARIA Music Awards, Mauboy caused media controversy when she mispronounced the word 'debut' as 'de-butt' twice, while referring to rock band Tame Impala's album Innerspeaker (which she called Innerspeak), as a finalist for the 'Album of the Year' award. Two days later, Mauboy told radio station Nova that "I wasn't actually reading it. It wasn't going through my head ... I only got the script that day and it was just like 'have a look and see ya later, and go do your hair and make-up.' That's how the lady was when she handed me the script."[51] Mauboy released her second studio album, Get 'Em Girls, on 5 November 2010.[52] She had travelled to the United States in February 2010 to work on the album in Los Angeles, New York, and Atlanta with a wide range of American songwriters and producers, most of whom she had not worked with previously.[6] Mauboy co-wrote three of the album's songs.[53] The album debuted at number six and was certified gold.[3][54] It received mixed reviews from critics. Majhid Heath of ABC Online Indigenous gave the album two-and-a-half out of five stars, writing that its a "non-cohesive mess of similar sounding, auto-tuned ravaged pop/R&B that diminishes the talent of this brilliant young songstress".[55]

Mauboy performing during the Galaxy Tour in January 2012.

The album's title track featuring American rapper Snoop Dogg, was released as its lead single on 17 September 2010,[56] and peaked at number 19.[3] Mauboy performed "Get 'Em Girls" with dance troupe Justice Crew at the 2010 NRL Grand Final on 3 October.[57] Mauboy also performed the song at the 2010 Nickelodeon Australian Kids' Choice Awards on 8 October, where she co-hosted the award ceremony with Liam Hemsworth and Jerry Trainor, and took home the award for 'Fave Aussie Muso'.[58][59] "Saturday Night", featuring American rapper Ludacris, was released as the album's second single on 25 October.[60] The song peaked at number seven and was certified double platinum.[3][61] "What Happened to Us", featuring English singer Jay Sean, and "Inescapable" were released as the album's third and fourth singles, respectively. In April 2011, Mauboy served as a support act for American singer Chris Brown's Australian leg of his F.A.M.E. Tour.[62] In October 2011, Mauboy became the new face of the video game, Nintendogs + Cats 3DS, joining forces with RSPCA and Nintendo to help promote the game.[63] In November 2011, she made a guest appearance in the television series, Underbelly: Razor, playing a beautiful nightclub singer.[64][65]

In December 2011, Mauboy teamed up with clothing label KuKu to launch her five-dress fashion range, which were available to buy at Myer stores across Australia.[66] From January to February 2012, Mauboy and Stan Walker embarked on their Galaxy Tour across Australia, to celebrate the release of their duet "Galaxy", the fifth single released from Get 'Em Girls.[67] After the tour, Mauboy began working on her third studio album.[68] In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, she stated: "I'm working on a whole new album ... a whole new project which I think will be a bit of something new and some of the older styles. I'm just really looking forward to getting back in the studio and recording again."[68] Mauboy secured a lead role in the film, The Sapphires, based on the stage show of the same name. The film was directed by Wayne Blair, and also starred Deborah Mailman, Shari Sebbens and Miranda Tapsell.[69] In the film, she played the role of Julie, one of four Indigenous Australian singers "who travel from a mission in Victoria to Vietnam to sing for American troops".[70][69] Mauboy and the cast attended the film's premiere at the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France on 20 May 2012.[69] Mauboy released "Gotcha" as the lead single from The Sapphires' soundtrack album of the same name on 13 July 2012.[71][72] It peaked at number 43, becoming Mauboy's lowest charting single to date.[3] The film premiered in Australia during the Melbourne Film Festival on 2 August 2012.[73]

Artistry

Musical style

Mauboy's music is generally R&B and pop,[74] but she also incorporates hip hop into some of her songs.[75] Mauboy's debut album, Been Waiting, has been described as "a blend of electro beats, heartfelt pop tunes and R&B bass lines."[76] Most of the themes on the album deal with boys, love and break-ups.[76] Mauboy told Star Online that "It's definitely something that I had in mind and that I really wanted to put down quickly before I forgot about it. Being in the studio gave me that inspiration to keep going ... I wanted the album to be mixed up and messed up. That's what it's all about as I was in a messed-up relationship at the time and that's the base line of the album and I just wanted to forget about it".[76] Jarrad Bevan from The Mercury noted that the album also contains themes about "everyday life", "family issues", and "friendship".[77] Alasdair Duncan from Rave magazine, described Mauboy's second album, Get 'Em Girls, as "a more hard-edged take on R&B and pop than her debut, pumped full of hip hop beats, jagged synths and futuristic vocal effects."[74] Mauboy said that she wanted each song on the album to talk about a "woman's needs", and that the album's theme was "very much about the empowerment of women and the domination of women."[78]

Aside from her vocals and piano work, Mauboy has also co-written some of her material. She co-wrote six songs on her first album,[30] and three on her second album.[53] Although Mauboy had no writing credits for the songs "Fight for You" and "Here for Me" on the album Get 'Em Girls, she stated in an interview that while working with American producer Harvey Mason, Jr., they came up with the melodies and hooks for these songs.[78] She also experimented with an operatic-type voice on her song "Scariest Part".[78] In 2010, Mauboy was nominated for 'Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year' at the APRA Awards.[79]

Influences

Mauboy grew up listening to country singers Patsy Cline and Dolly Parton,[12] as well as rappers Tupac Shakur, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.[80] She likes to play the piano while singing songs by Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, and the Bee Gees.[5] Mauboy cites Carey as one of her musical inspirations. She says, "I've always been a big fan of Mariah Carey. I think it's her personality. As much as she has an amazing voice, she has a crazy personality and I love the fact that she’s not afraid to hide that."[78] Mauboy has also named Houston as another one of her musical inspirations,[78] and has stated that she is a fan of Jennifer Lopez.[5][78]
