Imagine a sound that fuses the edgy, sexy-street vibe of Rihanna; the genre-diffusing live band qualities of The Red Hot Chili Peppers, with the casual cool approach of Katy B.

Meet singer/songwriter Jaynee, and her mahvelous band, currently making waves in British night spots.

Jaynee, real name Jane Burns, is a Londoner with the exotic mix of the Philippines and Scotland — such a rare combination sure to produce a unique individual with eclectic tastes that permeates all the way through to her music.

After getting rave reviews both from critics and fans, Jaynee is set to release her debut single “You Ain’t Got Me” on Aug. 21, with her family and friends, plus a growing number of followers, throwing their full support behind her.

Jaynee’s parents saw their daughter’s music aspirations as early as age 4 when she used to stand up on top of her toy box in the living room and perform to Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “Greatest Love of All.”

They enrolled her at Sylvia Young’s Theatre School, where she would walk the same path as other London performers such as The Saturdays’ Vanessa White, Sugababe’s Jade Ewen and Leona Lewis.

After completing secondary school, Jaynee pursued her ambition further, with the intention of developing her voice, and did this by winning a place at the renowned BRIT School (British Recording Industry Trust) in Croydon, South London where artists such as Amy Winehouse, Jessie J and Adele had studied.

It was here that Jaynee began to develop her songwriting talent and began to collaborate with other young musicians.

“The BRIT School was an amazing experience,” she says.

“Being immersed in such a creative environment with other people like me really showed me that this [performing] is what I wanted to do this with my life. I loved it! If I could do it all over again, I would!”

After finishing at BRIT, she studied for a degree in popular music performance at The Tech Schools, where the “keep music live” ethos was most prevalent.

It is here where she met some of the people who constitute the Jaynee band today — Ed Stafford on drums, Joe James on bass and Kingdom on guitar.

Both Ed and Joe attended Tech Schools for their respective instruments gaining honors degrees in popular music performance.

Critics and fans rave about Jaynee’s originality.



“A unique soulful singer who captivates listeners with her sweet, sultry vocals and dynamic, passionate performance,” writes

“Inspired by the likes of Jill Scott, Stevie Wonder, Norah Jones and India.Arie, it’s easy to see where Jaynee gets her love for organic live music rather than the digital/electronic sounds that many other singers her age seem to go for,” says The Carol Black Music Newsletter.

She writes, produces and records her own material, fusing acoustic indie with R&B and soul in a style befitting of an indie-soul bar (if such a place exists)”

“Uauuu!! Such a great talent you have girl, you can dream about the stars because you already own the sky!” writes fan Robermarco Fonseca.
