About

Lauded as a powerhouse performer, Eliza Jaye has spent decades developing her craft, and often leaves her audience bewitched by its purity and depth.

Eliza Jaye trained as a classical violinist from age five, learning her instrument by listening, as opposed to reading sheet music. This allowed her imagination to flourish and helped her to develop an acute ear for all things musical.

As a teen, her love of pulling apart music and uncovering the technique behind it, inspired her to pick up the guitar and use it to write. The interplay of textures created by the guitar and her violin complimented her gift for singing and it wasn’t long before Eliza Jaye received a scholarship to study music in her home city of Sydney. After school, she started a degree in Opera but left early, having been drawn to the life of a traveller and artist.

Eliza has now spent many years touring throughout Europe and the UK, guesting with various artists and performing her own music. Living in her camper-van-cum-mobile-recording-studio during this time nurtured her love of the freedom and being on the road.

As an artist and musician I draw inspiration from my environment and, living on the road, means having access to a constantly changing environment. One day I could be in a forest the next day by the sea or in a foreign country.

The single “Deja Vu” from Eliza’s latest album, “Middle Child”, was written while in Perpignan, in the south of France. The ambiance of the place, the vastness of the sea, the smell of lemon sugar crepes and the carousel painted with mermaids were all distilled into the writing of the song.

Eliza has produced and recorded two albums of material inspired by ideas spanning her lifetime. One track on “The Seed” was written at her grandma’s house when Eliza was nine.

Material seems to distill in me over time and is often drawn from feelings of nostalgia.

Rest in peace, our beloved Eliza Jaye. Strong women aren't simply born. They are made by the storms they walk through. Forever in our hearts full of love for our daughter and sister, Elizabeth Jane McInerney.

A special treat for fans of Eliza Jaye

(A story from my blog.)

Here is Elizabeth in 1993 in a submission for a music scholarship. Her performance of The White Cliffs of Dover is both subtle and clear but strong.

Elizabeth’s professionalism and dedication to her art, from even before her age in this video, would lay down the path that she would walk as Eliza Jaye.
