“Pop-folk with dreamy vocals – a rising star”
Mykaela Jay is a singer/songwriter born and bred in Lismore. Over the course of 2020 she released two new singles and launched her debut album, Mother Dearest. The first single Dogs Way Home introduced us to Jay's distinctive voice, all dreamy swoops within a tight groove, sounding like Beth Gibbons (Portishead) and Elena Tonra (Daughter) jamming in a smoky jazz club.
The second single Purple Flowers received airplay on triple j and critical acclaim across the board for its feel-good funky beat and Jay's impressive and unfettered vocals resulting in gigs at the Beach Hotel Byron Bay, The Northern Rivers Performing Arts Centre (NORPA) and as the opening act for Australian songwriting jewel William Crighton.
Jazzy titbits, funky beats, folk tales of near and far and in-between – Mykaela Jay's music is a beautiful collision of impressive vocals and dreamy lyrical tales. Mykaela Jay combines her passion of jazz and RnB with the twang of the charango, banjo, ukulele and her silky, heart-felt voice.
Superb musicianship, authentic, fresh food, with Khanthaly's already legendary Asian street-market delights on offer and a cocktail, wine and beer selection for die for.
