Budding singing sensation Jayme Dee began her career with a guitar, a YouTube account, and an unforgettable voice. From impeccably performed covers to compelling original tracks, this 20-year-old has proven her talent time after time.
And after millions of clicks and countless hours of practice, her hard work has paid off in a major way. This charming California girl’s song, “Rules,” is featured on the Hunger Games soundtrack (which recently hit #1 on iTunes).
We chatted with Jayme about how the Hunger Games changed her life and what she’ll be up to now that the odds are most certainly in her favor.
BettyConfidential: When did you start singing?
Jayme Dee: I think I’ve been singing ever since I could open my mouth! Growing up, music was around the house a ton because my mom is a voice and violin teacher. I think the first performance I had was “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,” age 4, at a recital. I’ve got to find that in the old family VHSs somewhere!
BC: Who are your biggest influences?
JD: I’ve always been a sucker for the classics: Frank Sinatra, Aretha Franklin, and The Beatles. More modern influences on my music would be Amy Winehouse, Fiona Apple, and maybe just a little bit of John Mayer.
BC: Who do you most want to collaborate with in the future?
JD: My dream collaboration would be John Mayer, because he’s kind of the love of my life. I believe we’re musical soul mates!
BC: What’s one thing you can’t live without?
JD: Chocolate. Definitely Chocolate.
BC: Were you always a Hunger Games fan?
JD: Yes! I read each book probably in 24-48 hours. I had to stop myself from buying the 2nd and 3rd ones right away because I was busy and knew I wouldn’t get anything done and would stay up all night reading if they were in my house!
