Jayne joined her first band at the age of 16 as a backing singer with a local Stockport band, and then for several years sang professionally as a self-contained solo artist doing the usual circuit of clubs in the North West of England. After that she took a break for many years and only returned to what she loves doing best when given the opportunity to audition as a backing vocalist for Steely Don. Jayne is a huge fan of all genres of music from 80’s electro to Country & Western and Jazz, anything with a really good melodic line and lyrics that tell a story.
‘I really enjoy being part of such a big band with so many fantastic musicians, I also absolutely love Steely Dan’s melodic hooks and complex harmonies which have proven to be quite a challenge to replicate. I am always at my happiest when I am singing.’
