Made in Detroit and now a Nashville transplant, Paulina Jayne’s music is a melting pot of Motown, rock and country influences under one genre Paulina coins, “urban country.” Her first crack at a country co-write was with Shane McAnally when Paulina was only 14 years old. Since then, she has written with several other #1 writers, including JT Harding, Bonnie Baker and Danny Orton. Paulina has opened for heavy-hitters like Sheryl Crow, Sam Hunt and Chase Rice and has shared Live Nation festival marquees all over the country with Tim McGraw, Miranda Lambert and Luke Bryan. In her hometown, Paulina three times sold out a 400 capacity venue made famous by Eminem, The Shelter, three times!
Currently, Paulina’s single, “Love’s Gonna Always Win,” has racked up more than 380,000 streams and was added on 62 radio stations in 19 countries and on ACM award-winning radio station, 99.5 WYCD. Robert Oermann of MusicRow Magazine presented her song the DISCovery Award adding that, “this record has an audio delight around every corner.” Another recent single called, “Country Music Everywhere,” was added to more than 25 Spotify playlists, the highlights including “Release Radar” and “Discover Weekly.” The attention she received from online streams and her live performances landed her a sponsorship from Ford Driving Skills for Life, a program created by Ford Motor Company. In addition, Paulina was recently extended the honor of becoming a celebrity ambassador for the national nonprofit-organization, Miss Amazing, which aims to empower girls and women with disabilities.
In May, Paulina graduated from Belmont University where she created an all encompassing management group with a student body infrastructure including Tess Davies and Stevie Palmer. Their company, GirlKingCo., has caught the interest of several marketing and entertainment firms, labels and publishers in Nashville, which has continued to propel Paulina and her teammates’ business interests as well as Paulina’s musical aspirations.
Well-known industry professionals have nothing but great things to say about Paulina. “Paulina’s songs and performances are irresistible, and it’s evident that her music comes from a very real place,” says Brandon Still of Blackberry Smoke. “I have seen hundreds of young artists starting out over the years. They either have the drive with limited talent or talent with no real direction. Paulina is one of those rare young musicians that has a hold of both,” says Uncle Kracker’s tour manager, Scott MacDonald. “Paulina Jayne is an amazingly dynamic performer who exudes vocal and musical talent far beyond her years. Check out this girl’s voice—simply amazing,” says Grammy Award-winning producer, Toby Wright.
Paulina’s live show is refined, yet explosive. She is the grittiness of Detroit melded into the “drop D” sound of southern rock. Her edgy lyricism and unique vocals have attracted significant attention. Her drive and dedication to her art and the business command respect. Paulina Jayne is an unapologetic and unyielding force that will undoubtedly leave her Detroit rock city mark on country music.
