In Artist Interview

Jayne Sachs video interview at legendary TAFFYs

Jayne Sachs, the incredibly gifted singer/songwriter and well respected artist offers an insight on her music career in an interview after a gig at legendary TAFFYs.

“The one thing more powerful than a singer-songwriter passionately spilling her guts… is a woman who, all grown up, doesn’t need to be misunderstood for edge’s sake anymore. With a backing band that gets it… a tough act to follow.”
-Cincinnati CityBeat

“She presents simple, human truths in the language of poetry and with the depth of a novel.”
– Jim Boz/WCSU

Besides being recognized for her songwriting skills and trademark sound, “Some artists would give their right arm to have a sound as recognizable as Jayne’s”- Renegade, Industry Edition, Sachs’ material is a great fit for TV and film placement.

As soon as Jayne blasted onto the music scene, her band won first place in the infamous WOXY’s (97Xposure) tri-state competition. Next her songs went into rotation on WOXY-FM and several other regional radio stations.JayneSachsBand bw

From there Jayne had numerous requests to open for national acts, performances at several high exposure events, songs on many CD compilations from around the country, invitations to showcase at several major music festivals, continuing radio play and wins at international songwriting competitions including the prestigious John Lennon Songwriting Contest for her song “Twisted Ballerina”.

She and the band, based out of Dayton, Ohio, are also veterans at performing live on radio and television, being asked to appear twice on WB’s national morning show “The Daily Buzz” and numerous requests to do live radio shows.

“The group grabbed the attention of the crowd with an energetic set!”
– The Philadelphia Inquirer

“Jayne Sachs belted out sounds I haven’t heard since Robert Plant clenched his fists and pulled out his primal calls from the gut of his youth seated in the 1970’s! …a VERY TALENTED 5 foot power packing punchy lady. Being an ex-singer, I was envious of her grunge style and smokey persona.”
-Cups and Cauldrons

“Sachs’ diverse fans appreciate and relate to her insightful lyrics and feel a certain intimacy with her music. Most would say its her “big heart and honest pen”
-Dayton City Paper

“Sachs’ musicality may pull you in from the street, but it’s her mind that pulls you further, into her.”
– Xray Cincinnati
