Raised in small regional mining towns across Queensland, Mikayla J was spoon-fed Australian country music from a young age, including music by Troy Cassar-Daley, Kasey Chambers and Lee Kernaghan.
Her desire to connect and communicate through honest storytelling has already taken her music to Nashville, The Desert Harmony Festival in the Northern Territory and all the way to Papua New Guinea. Presenting with maturity beyond her years, Mikayla J has shared stages with a long list of country music royalty including Warren H. Williams, Catherine Britt, Graeme Connors, Melinda Schneider, Adam Harvey and Neill Murray.
With a strong sense of social responsibility, Mikayla J is passionate about supporting her community. Most recently Mikayla travelled to Uluru to work alongside the Jimmy Little Foundation and perform and learn from the Mutitjulu community.
