Paulina Jayne might be twenty-one years old but can be considered a seasoned music veteran with her impressive list of performances and song writing history. Paulina has been writing with some of Nashville’s biggest songwriters since age 14. With hundreds of original songs in her catalog, Paulina’s writing credits include collaborations with Shane McAnally, Trey Bruce, JT Harding, Herschel Boone, Bonnie Baker, Steph Jones and Danny Orton.
With more than one hundred performances in her repertoire, Paulina is no stranger to the stage. She has had the honor of opening for renowned country musicians, Sheryl Crow, Sam Hunt, Frankie Ballard, Chase Rice, Blackberry Smoke, Jerrod Niemann and numerous others. Performing her own music, Paulina has also shared the marquee with legendary country music artists including Tim McGraw, Florida Georgia Line, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Hunter Hayes, Blackberry Smoke, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton. “Paulina’s songs and performances are irresistible,” says Brandon Still of Blackberry Smoke, “it’s evident that her music comes from a very real place.”
Paulina’s first project, Girl Who Would Be King, was released during her junior year of high school. The EP was produced at legendary Oceanway Studios in Nashville and Rustbelt Studios in metro Detroit. She collaborated with great talents such as Audley Freed (The Black Crowes, Aerosmith, Sheryl Crow), Keith Gattis (Dixie Chicks), Fred Eltringham (Sheryl Crow), and Jen Gunderman (professor of Rock and Roll Music at Vanderbilt University).
Since the release of her first project, Paulina has made the transition to Music City where she recently finished recording her second project under the direction of Emmy award winning songwriter, Trey Bruce. Bruce produced Paulina’s self-titled sophomore EP and co-wrote one of the five songs on the EP, Loves Gonna Always Win, with Paulina and Hailey Steele.
“Paulina is writing the kinds of songs the newest youth movement of country listeners really love, but with a slight variation in the images and the language. From growing up in Detroit, she's picked up an irresistible rhyming pattern with her lyrics that set her apart from the pack. Paulina is an artist to watch and listen for closely!"- Trey Bruce, Emmy Award Winning Songwriter & Producer --- 8 #1 songs (Trace Adkins, Chris Janson, Leann Rimes, Chris LeDoux, Carrie Underwood).
Her inimitable lyricism and powerhouse vocals demand your attention, her drive and dedication demands your respect and her overall enthusiasm for her craft paired with her high energy, hair-whipping performances keeps you wanting more. Paulina Jayne is an unmistakable force that is ready to take Music City by storm!
