Ajaye Jardine is the last artist to perform at out library this summer in conjunction with our library and Southern Trace Songwriters. The final performance will be on July 31st at 6 p.m.
Born in Richmond, British Columbia, Ajaye Jardine was introduced to music at an early age by her family, with everything from Talking Heads to Lynyrd Skynyrd infusing her with a creative spark that never left. In 2010, she took her first step as a country music artist by forming The Jardines with her mother, Cherelle Jardine. Over the next four years, they released two independent full-length albums and performed on a variety of stages in the BC Country music community including the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics stage.
She traveled to Nashville in 2015 to find inspiration and collaboration in Music City. She recorded 5 new tracks at Rough Edges Studio with producers Jane Bach and Duane Sciacqua along with an A-list team of session players, releasing the final self-titled EP in the summer of 2015. She has performed at the 2016 Calgary Stampede, 2016 SunFest, and alongside Steve Earle on Cayamo 2017. She released a collaboration of her signature track “Boots on Girl” featuring Aaron Grain of award winning trio The Washboard Union, and performed the song at the 2017 BC Country Awards Show.
She has also been touring various cities/states in the United States in part of her “Get Your Boots on Tour”, along with a recent move to Nashville to plant roots as a songwriter and performer on the rise.
She uses her music as a vehicle to entertain and empower her audience, and her new record Midnight & Bourbon, is now available on iTunes thanks to Creative BC and PledgeMusic. It is a true representation of her journey from a grassroots budding artist to a hard hitting, soulful rock woman of country music.
