Daena Jay

A chance encounter with producer/songwriter Bobby Hartry eventually led to multiple EP’s, a collaboration resulting in two Emmy-nominated songs ‘Home Again’ and ‘The Gray’ and hundreds of network television placements throughout the years. Daena is strongly influenced by My Brightest Diamond, Florence & the Machine, Regina Spektor, and Kimbra.

Originally from South Africa, this young writer with an old soul, has been shaped by many home-cities around the world that captured her spirit and imagination, including London, Durban, Cape Town, Perth, and LA. Stories of life and love and loss have made their way to Daena who writes as a true outlet of creative expression.
