Primary school sweethearts, together for eighteen years and married since 2014, Kirsty and Jesse are a rock-solid couple.
Kirsty and Jesse have been involved in the music world for most of their lives. Kirsty is an international touring artist, who has won numerous awards over the course of her career, including the much-coveted Golden Guitar Award (2 in total) and Toyota Star Maker Competition (fellow winners include Keith Urban and Lee Kernaghan). Her last album has well over 1 million streams and was the highest charting of her career to date. Jesse has worked on the other side of the microphone, producing and directing over 150 music videos, as well as creating social media and promotional content for hundreds of different musicians and events, in Australia and overseas. Jesse has now stepped out from behind the camera into the spotlight and performs on stage as part of the trio RHINESTONED with Kirsty and Dan Ebbels.
With a love of interior design, in early 2021, after many years applying, Kirsty and Jesse were successful in securing a spot on the hugely popular Channel 9 reality show ‘The Block’ for the ‘Fans v Faves’ season. Having purchased and flipped several houses since the age of 18, the pair were extremely well suited to the series. The show became another massive ratings hit for the network and presented Kirsty and Jesse to an estimated 65% of the Aussie population through the 6 month broadcast period (According to Channel 9 reporting). The duo was portrayed as hard working, honest and respectful, winning the hearts of households across Australia.
When not performing, Kirsty and Jesse spend their time continuing to renovate houses, the latest being their own home in beautiful Lake Macquarie, you can follow along the process with their Lake House Build series they are currently filming. Due to the constant request of family and friends for help with styling and staging their homes for sale, Kirsty and Jesse have now launched their new business 'FEELS LIKE HOME' which sees them styling and staging homes in the Hunter Valley, Central Coast and Port Stephens areas (you can read more about on this site)
We are still pinching ourselves that this dream kitchen is ours! We have had to be very budget conscious with our Lake House Build so we decided to save money on our cabinetry and used a flat pack option from Design 10 so we could splurge in other areas, and boy we are so glad we did as this kitchen looks high end and is amazing quality.
