Katie Jay & guest

Katie Jay is another one of our incredibly talented musicians we are so lucky to have her call Cairns home!

Recently releasing her debut album "You're a Dreamer", she has been hitting the music scene like a pro!

Crafting lush harmonies and lyrics which connect. Her first single "Carried Away" is a slice of 90's inspired synth pop/rock with a thick biscuity bass line and a pulsing synth filling.

Music has always played an important role in Katie’s life and singing and making up songs is something that she has done from a very young age (often driving her family crazy on long car trips). Katie grew up with role models for inspiration in her own family, such as her aunty Sarah de Jong, composer of music for movies and theatre and her uncle Lucas de Jong who has sung opera all over the world. With these, and other great examples so close to home it was a natural progression for her to become involved in making music.

In Melbourne Katie learnt to perform singing other peoples songs at weddings and corporate functions. When she arrived in Cairns a new chapter began, she began to write her own songs. Katie Jay’s songs are loved. Katie won the 2014 Songwriters Award at the Tablelands Folk Festival with her song “The River”, the same song that she was then invited to share on Balcony TV early in 2015. Late in 2015 Katie Jay, along with her band The Code were invited to perform at The Great American Music Hall in San Francisco for a benefit concert for the Owsley Stanley Foundation

We are super excited to have her perform at Elixir!!
