With one EP already under her belt and another on the way, Paulina has shared the stage with many big names in the industry including Sheryl Crow, Chase Rice, Ty Stone and Jerrod Niemann. HEAR got a chance to talk to Paulina about her music career thus far and what she has planned for her future. “I’ve had a lot going on in my life and I feel blessed. My most memorable highlight so far was opening for and meeting Sheryl Crow at DTE. She helped me realize that I shouldn’t be afraid to be authentic and people will like me for who I am.”  Paulina told us that, “life isn’t easy for a regular teenage girl,” but imagine being in high school while juggling a singing career; though Paulina seems to have it well under control.  “I don’t have anything to complain about, but it is tough coming home from a big show and then having to wake up to go to school on Monday. The biggest struggle for me is the transition between Paulina Jayne and Paulina at school because I have to be in a different element for both.”

This young singer and songwriter is working on her second EP. Paulina wants to incorporate more of the Detroit sound by fusing country with rock for a grittier sound. “I’m going for what I like to call an Urban-Country album. Combining country music that you’re used to with a rock sound, considering we are Detroit Rock City! I’m really excited about it.”

This is not Paulina’s first time playing St. Andrews Hall. She sold out the venue with the launch of her first EP and she’s excited to return. “One of the reasons I can’t wait for this show is that this is my favorite venue to play at.” She will be accompanied by Annabelle Road and Matt Austin who Paulina had nothing but good things to say about. “They are phenomenal musicians and friends of mine. Annabelle Road’s lead singer, Amanda, had such an impact on me when I opened for them. I’m really excited to see them all again.”

Following the success of the Faster Horses Music Festival in Brooklyn, MI last summer promoters are pulling out all the stops for The Road To Faster Horses Series. It will be just a taste of Country Music flavor coming to Michigan this year. Be sure to join Paulina Jayne with Annabelle Road and Matt Austin for this unique event when they roll out the red carpet at St. Andrews Hall on March 29th.
