One of Australia’s next up and coming names in country is Michaela Jenke.
A graduate of the CMAA Senior Academy of Country Music and winner of the 2018 Tamworth Country Music Festival
Coca-Cola Battle of The New Stars competition, Michaela describes her music as “Authentic country with attitude”!
“Diamonds Outta Dirt”, the debut EP from Michaela was released in 2017, recorded and produced by one of Australia’s most respected musicians, Bill Chambers. Since then she has caught the eye of numerous big names in the Australian country music scene; having performed with and supported artists such as 8x Golden Guitar winner Adam Harvey, Catherine Britt,
Amber Lawrence, Bill Chambers, Aleyce Simmonds and Imogen Clark.
Always performing alongside Michaela is Adelaide’s finest chicken’ pickin’ guitarist Reid Sampson. Busking from an early age, studying music, and playing many live shows has accumulated Reid over 20 years experience on 6 strings!
As well as heading off to the Mildura Country Music Festival and playing numerous other interstate shows later this year, Michaela and Reid are excited to be writing for a debut album to be released next year!
