PAULINA JAYNE - EPK
Made in Detroit and now a Nashville resident, Paulina Jayne’s music is a melting pot of Motown, Rock & Roll and Country influences creating one genre she calls, “urban country.” She honed her songwriting abilities at a young age and began co-writing with some of country music’s biggest #1 writers, including Shane McAnally, JT Harding, Anthony Smith and Bonnie Baker. A vivacious and energy-infectious performer, Paulina has opened for heavy-hitters like Sheryl Crow, Rascal Flatts, Sam Hunt and Chase Rice and has shared Live Nation marquees all over the country with Tim McGraw, Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley and Luke Bryan. On three accounts, Paulina sold out a 400 capacity venue made famous by Eminem (The Shelter) in her hometown.
Paulina’s latest single, ‘Make the Moves,’ radiates inspiration from her hometown heroes and pays homage to her love for the Nashville sound. Grammy Award-Winning Producer, Mills Logan, raved about her single saying, “‘Make the Moves’ is such a fantastic song. The energy from Paulina’s singing translates perfectly through the speakers. Such a joy to listen to!”
Half a million streams on Paulina’s last single, ‘Love’s Gonna Always Win,’ and adds on 62 radio stations in 19 countries, including ACM award-winning radio station, 99.5 WYCD, generated significant buzz in Nashville. In fact, renowned writer and music historian, Robert Oermann of MusicRow Magazine, presented her the DISCovery Award adding that, “this record has an audio delight around every corner.” In 2018, ‘Love’s Gonna Always Win’ was featured on Paulina’s Netflix debut on Season 3 of “Top Grier,” a reality show surrounding YouTube and Vine star, Hayes Grier. Later that year, Paulina was featured in a nationwide commercial for Folgers on ION Television Network, broadcasting to over 100 million homes.
As Paulina gained recognition for impressive streaming numbers, her television appearances and live performances, Ford Motor Company saw fit to align their brand with Paulina’s by extending her a sponsorship and partnership through Ford Driving Skills for Life. In addition to her work with Ford Community Fund, Paulina is now a celebrity ambassador for the national nonprofit-organization, Miss Amazing, which aims to empower girls and women with disabilities.
In 2018, Paulina graduated from Belmont University where she created an all-encompassing management group with Tess Davies and Stevie Palmer. Post graduation, their company, Girl King Co., has caught the interest of several marketing and entertainment firms, labels and publishers in Nashville, continuing to propel Paulina and her teammates’ business interests as well as Paulina’s musical aspirations.
Industry professionals have recognized, embraced and developed Paulina’s talent and artistry from the beginning. “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 Jayne is a real country musician. She writes songs about real things, engages with the audience, and that’s what country music is all about.” Says VP of Programming at Entercom, Tim Roberts.
Paulina’s live show is refined, yet explosive. She is the grittiness of Detroit melded into the “drop D” sound of southern rock leaned up against a strong back-beat. 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.
