Alexandra Jayne is a 21 year old singer songwriter originally from the West Midlands and now based in Liverpool, where she recently won the Liverpool Acoustic Songwriting Challenge.
A classically trained singer, Alexandra first picked up a guitar at the age of 15 and has since crafted her own distinctive songwriting. Her acoustic style is complemented by a strong, soulful voice which has lead to comparisons with Joan Baez. Alexandra spent her early years immersed in the records of Bob Dylan and vocal giant Mavis Staples, from whom she learned the impact of a truly emotional song, something she reflects with her own soul-bearing lyrics.
Armed with her acoustic guitar she regularly gigs around the West Midlands and Liverpool. Soaking up the cultural heritage of the city along the way, she has rapidly become part of the eclectic Liverpool gig circuit, singing at various venues including the world famous Cavern Club and this year's Oxjam Liverpool and Threshold Festival. She also performed this summer at Shropshire's ever-popular 'Pheztival' and has recently had her music played and performed a live set on BBC Radio Shropshire Introducing.
"Alexandra Jayne's stunning vocal arrangements and superb song writing ability will leave you absolutely defenceless against the pure beauty of her songs. With a voice reminiscent of Stevie Nicks, you will be spellbound by her songs." - Freaky Pug Records
