Who is Katie Jayne?
Katie Jayne is the fresh face of pop country, taking her Dubbo roots over to the UK and bringing home a unique musical flavour. Fun and a bubbly with a charm that leads the audience through complex emotional ballads back to high-energy party tunes, Katie is a songwriter that will leave you dancing. Her latest single No Shadow is a sassy girl-power anthem which scored over 400,000 streams on Spotify, high rotation on CMC and landed in the KIX COUNTRY Top 20 chart.
Originally from Dubbo, NSW, Katie began her career in the United Kingdom in 2015 as the driving force behind the duo Southern Junction. Making her debut at the Isle of Wight Festival, Katie went on to play many impressive venues including London’s O2 Arena, for the Country2Country Festival as well as the UK’s two leading country music festivals, Buckle and Boots and FSA Fest.
2018 saw Katie Jayne’s first solo single release, Sunlit Avenue, which debuted at #5 on the Australian Country iTunes chart and gained airplay on Australian country radio and the Country Music Channel. Off the back of her success, Katie brought her band for two shows at the Gympie Music Muster and an appearance at Tunes on the Turf in Newcastle.
Her latest single No Shadow debuted at #7 on the iTunes Country charts and quickly gained traction after being added to Spotify’s curated playlist, “Fresh Country”. The track’s streams blew up, with over 150,000 streams in the first month of release, and a flow-on effect for radio and TV charting.
With her third single “Use Me” released March 29th 2019, audiences are treated to a softer more vulnerable side to her writing. The video gained 20,000 views in the first 24 hours of release and the single charted at #2 on the iTunes charts.
“This song is my heart laid bare but i think we can all relate to the message in one way or another” - Katie Jayne.
With a 2020 tour planned for the UK, Katie is set to return to her roots and join her two worlds.
