Jayne Doe Shares Single, ‘Welcome To Hollywood’, A Candid Anthem Of Sacrifice

Oozing soul-stirring vocals, moody guitar riffs and a catchy hook, Los Angeles – based artist Sydney Agudong – aka JAYNE DOE – presents her new single, ‘Welcome To Hollywood’, which describes her experience in pursuing her dreams in the ‘city of stars and angels’, putting her health and heart out on the line without knowing what the future holds.

She says of her experience: “Hollywood’ is glamorized as a place where people can be whoever they want to be and live out their wildest dreams, but no one ever talks about the thousands and thousands of rejections and thoughts of giving up and giving in to one of those critics or “no’s” that tell you it’ll never happen, whether you or someone else is the critic themselves. No one talks about the mental strength and sacrifice it takes to make a dream come true.” 

Born and raised in Hawai’i, the 21 year old, made her first on-stage debut at 18 months old, and knew that’s where she belonged. Also a multi-instrumentalist, Jayne spent her childhood years singing in local talent shows and competitions, receiving awards and recognition at every stop. At 10, Sydney wrote and recorded her first original song called ‘I’m So Sorry’ that was later played and requested on local Hawaiian radio stations.

Jayne is currently collaborating with Al Machera, a music industry veteran that engineered the famous “Salt N Pepa” and co-founded Westlake Recording Studios, a highly utilized and respected recording company known best for Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ Album.

When she’s not in the studio and out performing, Jayne is quickly developing her on-screen credits in TV and film. She shot a lead role in her first feature film titled, “West Michigan,” and booked a recurring guest star role on Netflix’s “On My Block”.

Jayne Doe, is in the process of developing her album. Until then, have a listen to her latest single, ‘Welcome to Hollywood’ below…

JVSTN Shares Mesmeric Single, ‘Dancing With The Enemy’

JVSTN.‘s synth-heavy and forward pop single, ‘Dancing With The Enemy’ is his first original offering, following his smooth cover of Frank Oceans’ ‘Thinkin’ Bout You’. The New York-based pop artist has been working on his music production skills and started writing original music for the first time in 2021. Years of formal singing training, performing and recording with collegiate a cappella group The University of Rochester Midnight Ramblers, and music production courses have culminated to this very moment.

His new song actually started out as a songwriting and production exercise through Charlie Puth’s course. JVSTN. wrote the song with his best friend from college, Charlie Aldrich, and decided it would make an excellent debut. He produced the track himself in his Brooklyn bedroom and is excited to share it with the world!

Speaking of his debut offering, JVSN says: “‘Dancing With The Enemy’ is about a romantic nightmare a lot of us have experienced. I tried to capture the idea of teetering between semi-opaque feelings of a deep love and devastating hurt and anxiety. I go back and forth between infatuation and an uncertain dread. The music video (to be released in late January) focuses on a mysteriously alluring and manipulative woman. She draws me in and ultimately stabs me in the back – similar to what the feared venus fly trap does with its prey.”

This one’s a real beauty; why not check it out below…

FRENCH THE KID smashes into 2022 with his self-reflective new single ‘Remedy’.

Just 22 years old, French spent his teens in South West France before returning to the UK at 18 to take the music industry by storm. Since smashing onto the scene with his debut single just 2 years ago, French The Kid has amassed a cult following, millions of streams and delivered iconic viral freestyles that have propelled him to prominence (including a GRM Daily ‘Daily Duppy’ which has become one of the most viewed Daily Duppy debuts of all time).
