Purple Flowers (Single)
‘Purple flowers’ is an ode to young love, drawing a parallel between fleeting love and the youth, frequency and short lived vibrancy of flower blossoms in the spring. ‘Purple Flowers’ is funky bass lines and rimshot framed drum beats, salty sax and layered, rhythmic harmonies. It’s fun, funky and easy to sing along to.
A Dogs Way Home (Single)
Long awaited, Mykaela Jay’s debut single is out now. ‘A Dog’s Way Home’ is the first snippet of what’s to be expected from Mykaela’s album to be released later in the year. The song is a musical homage to the town where she grew up featuring all local artists including the internationally celebrated ‘Isabella A Cappella’ choir, Angus Fletcher on Drums, Luke Fawcett on Bass Guitar, Hugo Jones on Keys and Liam Baillie on Viola. The powerful message of ‘A Dog’s Way Home’ is only enhanced by its danceable grooves and powerful, ‘can’t get out of your head’ choir lines. The work is a declaration and a celebration that focuses on female empowerment in the form of a fun, danceable number.
Mother Dearest (Album)
Set to release in 2021 Mykaela Jay’s ‘Mother Dearest’ is a combination of funky bass lines, groovy drum beats, thick layered harmonies, choirs, trumpet, sax, string trios and mesmerising lyricism, 1 year in the making. ‘Mother Dearest’ is a celebration of inspiration, focusing on the beauty of sharing music, the fun of dancing, the power of lyricism and the inspiring muse of the natural world. Mykaela Jay engages with controversial topics in a masterful manner, leaving the listener with a sense of inspiration and strength as she encapsulates the complexities of youth in the face of our chaotic and crisis-stricken world. Mykaela’s debut album is the musical postcard of her childhood, and pays special homage to her home in the Northern Rivers of NSW Australia.
