Jamie-Lee Sexton

Jamie-Lee Sexton founded The Sextons in 2014, and has decided to rebrand herself as a solo artist.

Her solo EP, MAGIC features songs that stem from her personal stories and life experiences.

Her debut single, MAGIC is available TODAY and was produced by SAMA Award-winning Producer, Crighton Goodwill.

It has been an exciting adventure for me to follow this talent, who started off as an Idols contestant in 2005, and then again in 2010.

I interviewed her first in 2013 as a solo artist, then again when she formed The Sextons, and now it is an honour to continue on this journey with Jamie- Lee as she re-invents herself as a solo artist.

You started off as a solo artists, formed The Sextons and now are re-branding yourself as a solo artist – why this move?

Jamie-Lee:

“This newfound direction is about reinventing myself as an artist with a renewed energy and vision, with a greater understanding of connection and the creation of a three-dimensional future in music.

Jamie-Lee Sexton as a brand is my passion and always was, and today I want to dedicate my time and energy towards this change.

I will also continue to create high energy performances with talented musicians by my side.”

MAGIC is your first solo single – why did you choose this song as your break out /rebranding single?

Jamie-Lee:

“Magic , is MY Magic and I wanted to share this new venture with the world. And it’s a pretty awesome track !”

Why should people believe in Magic and besides for the magic experience as a child, do you still experience magic?

Jamie-Lee:

“I experience Magic every single day of my life and it appears in different shapes and forms. Writing music and connecting my emotions to the words is Magic!

I think people should believe in Magic because it makes life and the experiences exceptionally beautiful and memorable.”

It’s a great single and so very Jamie – but is it very different to The Sextons sound, and if so, how?

Jamie-Lee:

“Yes, it’s different, as I am in the process of reinventing my sound.

This track and the up and coming EP, has more focus in the genre that I feel most connected to, which is “Alternative Pop”.

I have also included more modern elements and my vision is more in tune at this point. I am also experimenting with various sounds and truly talented people in the industry as SA is full of them!”

I hear a lot of reggae and funk in your new song, mixed with pop, soul and a bit of rock – if you could choose one genre, which would it be and why?

Jamie-Lee:

“Magic and the up and coming EP – are “Alternative Pop”.

This genre has elements of pop, soul and a touch of funk. This is my New Flava!”

You launched a MAGIC campaign on Social Media – explain it to me?

Jamie-Lee:

“This Marketing Campaign is really important to me. My team and I, have put a lot of hard work and dedication into this project.

We have been creating some very cool ideas and placing them into this campaign. That’s all I can say for now…., I am SUPER excited to be sharing it with you all.”

Plans going forward as a solo artist; gigs, etc

Jamie-Lee:

“A lot is in the works at the moment. Playing awesome music festivals this year; Oktoberfest, White Mountain & Oppikoppi .

And a Nationwide Tour- in the pipeline…. Follow me on FB, Twitter and Insta for more info on that.”
