A NOTE FROM PAULINA
"I like to think that I’m different than the other female artists. Not only do I look different, but stylistically, I’m very different--like a salty surprise in the sugar bowl! On stage, I’m full throttle, boot-stomping, and unapologetically high energy. I’m always totally in the moment, maximizing my performance high and completely enjoying the audience interaction. I don’t wear pastels, my hair is barely tamed, and I will out-work and out-show even the Budweiser stallions, though I’m still a little girly. If the occasion requires that I lift the back-end of a pickup off the ice, I will do it, and on the other hand, I am willing to bake an apple pie, if that’s what the climate calls for to convert a fan. I’m an artist built from the heart out, who is self-aware, who knows her sound, who’s unafraid of hard work, who’s confident yet humble and fully cognizant of her undeserved blessings, and who lives to make and deliver music. I also happen to believe that I’m relatable in my imperfections, and I think it’s obvious that I have fun doing just about everything. (Not too many people laugh as much as I do!) I have sensed that people can get comfortable with me pretty quickly and want to hang-out. This makes me fundamentally happy. And in the writer’s room and in the studio, I am equally joyful and comfortable, but always focused and always carrying my weight.
This is the result of my rustbelt upbringing. Appreciative of grit and taught to work until the job is done regardless of the hour, I launched my own company and team on limited resources during college. In less than a year, we have built a fan base in lightning speed on nothing more than ingenuity and sweat equity. I would bring all of this to any company and any stage. I would bring my personal convictions, my fierce work ethic, and every fiber of my passion. I would bring what I believe is an edgier girl sound and message to country music which reflects today’s edgier young women in general–girls who do not want to be defined, or define themselves, by the men they’ve dumped or who’ve left them. They deserve to define themselves in much more significant terms. Terms that reflect their souls, their sisterhood, their suffrage, their dreams, and their faith. They want to be able to flex their muscles without sacrificing an ounce of their femininity. They want to live out loud. They want to run a fair race. They want to love hard and give big. I am that young woman. And those young women are all around me and are looking for a voice. That is my voice. Something different, yet familiar.
I want to build a 360 degree, long-lasting career, not create a moment in time. With a brain trust of experience and guidance from industry executives and a stage’s megaphone, I could do that. To prove my mettle, I would be willing to do anything from re-stringing guitars to chauffeuring, babysitting, co-writing with, supporting, and promoting any of the amazing artists in country music. Of course, I would be honored to tour and record in any capacity. Give me an inch, and I will earn a mile!"
Thank you for listening,
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, Danny Orton and more.
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. Jayne is now a member of the Country Music Association.
“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!
“Paulina is very talented and it has been a joy and privilege watching her grow and develop her talent. I’m happy to have been even a small part of that process. She’s an awesome person and talent.”

“I have seen 100’s of young artists starting out over the years. They either have the drive with limited talents or a talent with no real direction. Paulina is one of those rare young musicians that has a hold of both!”
Uncle Kracker’s Tour Manager
“She’s a real country musician. She writes songs about real things. She connects with the audience. That’s what country music is all about, and that’s why we love having her here at the Downtown Hoedown.”
99.5 WYCD Radio Programmer
“Once you hear her sing one of her original songs, it’s easy to forget that Paulina is only 18 and a high school senior. But the minute she steps on the stage with her 100-watt smile, she becomes the consummate professional.”
Metro Times (2014)
“Paulina Jayne is an amazingly dynamic performer, who exudes vocal and musical talent far beyond her years. Her music is pure with heartfelt emotion and honest, innocently pure lyrics. Check out this girl’s voice. Simply amazing!”
Grammy Award Winning Producer
