Songstress gets ahead with first release

THURROCK teenager and full-time performing arts student, Olivia-Jayne has released her first original single called In My Head.

The track is an upbeat. melodic pop affair with strong lyrics.  If the pop version is a little too much for a relaxing Sunday afternoon, then the Piano Acoustic version, released August 9, may be more to your liking.  Both versions can be found on Spotify and iTunes and most other music platforms.

Olivia-Jayne penned the song with the help of former Voice contestant Tom Johnston and Essex DJ, Joe White and she is quick to share credit for the work, saying: “Tom is just amazing at helping me arrange my ideas into workable lyrics and Joe always brings the music, to kick start the creative process”.

Rees Bloomfield of SS2 Recording added the engineering prowess to produce a the final versions.

The talented quartet have already been back in the studio to write two more tracks to be released later in the year.

“I’ve met some amazing people in the last year.  Kenny Ball Junior, who can be found most Sunday’s performing in the garden at Sir Henry’s in Aveley, gave me some great advice to help my live performances and I also met an amazing photographer Lisa Visser, who produced the cover photo for In My Head”.

So, what does the rest of 2018 hold for Olivia-Jayne?  “I’m back in the studio recording the next two single releases in the next few weeks, I’ll be singing live and doing a radio interview on PheonixFM towards the end of August.  I’m them looking to do some more live gigs on the run up to Christmas – I love performing live and so if anyone has slots to fill?, please do get in touch via my website
