Samantha-Jayne is a self-taught saxophonist from South Staffordshire. A player of the soprano, alto and tenor saxophones. After two years of teaching herself to play by ear at the age of 17, she toured the UK, Germany and Miami with more established artists and gospel bands. She currently tours with Simply Luther tribute artist Steve Williamson and will be touring as part with the George Michael tribute show 'The George Michael Story'.

She has played in many well-known Jazz clubs around Birmingham, including the Jam House, Symphony Bar, The Blue Piano, either as a featured artist or as part of other bands. She has performed for many celebrities and for high profile events. Her ability to play 'by ear' and improvise to any music style has meant that she has become home of the most sought after saxophonists in the West Midlands. With the close resemblance of the saxophone to the human voice, combined with Samantha-Jayne's warm sax tones and exceptional improvisational skills, her performances are full of emotion and expression. Samantha-Jayne doesn't just play the sax, she makes her saxophones 'sing' as well as 'speak' to the listener.
