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”.
