INTRODUCING MIKAYLA J
FROM THE RED CENTRE TO THE SANDY COAST LINES OF AUSTRALIA
- MIKAYLA J IS TOURING FULL TIME IN 2019 –
Caravan hooked up, suitcases packed and maps ready! Mikayla J is on a roll, literally! Touring Australia fulltime in 2019! Completing the big lap of Oz sees Mikayla cross state lines and time zones, to deliver shows to small towns, cities and everywhere in between.
This tour follows a massive 2018 which saw Mikayla graduate from the prestigious CMAA Academy of Country Music, sing with Award winning country duo O’Shea at the Golden Guitar Awards and hold a winter music residency at Thredbo Resort.
Raised on the ever-changing landscapes of Collinsville and Benaraby in Central Queensland, to as far west as Paraburdoo in Western Australia, Mikayla J’s unique experience of the Australian landscape and the communities she lived in provided a platform for her to tell stories that comment on society and the people within it, sparking her desire to connect and communicate through honest storytelling.
Mikayla J is stepping out with a hard hitting, lyrically driven sound that has taken her from Tennant Creek, Northern Territory all the way to Nashville, Tennessee, and seen her support some of Australia’s best country artists along the way. In celebration of rain and a friendly face in drought, Mikayla is out there experiencing the land and sharing the stories of the people she meets along the way.
Mikayla’s selfless love of music has led to her supporting local charities and working alongside the Jimmy Little Foundation/ Uncle Jimmy Thumbs Up in the Northern Territory to teach healthy lifestyle choices to young Indigenous people through the use of music.
Mikayla J’s debut EP ‘When Lightning Strikes’ has already impressed Music fans and professionals alike, and her future is sure to do the same. Catch Mikayla J in a town near you in 2019.
