Where are you located now and where are you originally from?
I’m from Sheffield, England and that’s currently where I’m at now. I lived in London for a little while until COVID but I do plan on playing there again once things go back to normal.
Who has been your greatest influence?
It sounds cliché but Taylor Swift! If it wasn’t for her, I don’t know if I would have pursued being a singer-songwriter. So many women influenced me growing up, Lori McKenna being another one, and I want to speak my truth like they do.
Being a country artist in the UK is interesting because you wouldn’t think it’d be authentic but it totally is me. I don’t sound like an American but I’m a storyteller and that comes through in the music.
What is your latest and greatest?
Well, I happened to release my debut single, “Homeless”, right before COVID (perfect timing)!! But you know there’s still so much I can do to stay connected with my audience. Online lives and stuff like that.
What are you most looking forward to in 2021?
Putting together the concept for an EP! It’ll be my first real body of work. I’m used to singles and having a full collection out would be a game changer. Also, getting out and performing is a big highlight (hopefully)!
How can we stay up to date with you?
You can find me on all social media @reyajaynemusic. I’ll be doing live shows and will update you on my journey! INSTAGRAM
