Award-winning BC Country Music Female Artist of the Year Ajaye Jardine has released a new video for her good vibe track, Fill It Up Again.
With more than 100,000 streams and counting, the song is the latest to shine off the Richmond-based country/roots/pop artist’s award-nominated debut album, Midnight & Bourbon.
A finalist for the 2016 Ole on The Spot via Anthem Entertainment (previously Ole Publishing), Jardine was nominated for both Record of the Year at the Tennessee Songwriter Association International Awards and multiple BC Country Music Award nominations — in addition to her 2019 win for Female Artist of the Year.
She has performed alongside Steve Earle (Cayamo 2017), Today in Nashville, CTV Morning Live Vancouver, BC Country Music Award Show, Tennessee Songwriter Association International Awards Show, SunFest, the Calgary Stampede, Canadian Music Week, The Roxy, The Railway Club, The Listening Room, and The Bluebird Cafe, among others. She has collaborated with Aaron Grain (The Washboard Union), and is endorsed by AMI Guitars and Lanikai Ukuleles.
The career credits stack with sound reason; as striking as her vibrant and powerful vox are, Jardine’s unmistakable mettle as a relatable, charismatic and endearing lyricist proves she was born for the path she’s walking.
“I create music because it’s who I am,” she says of Fill It Up Again and Midnight & Bourbon. “I’m a storyteller. When I was writing this album, my intention was to be really honest with myself and share both the highs and lows I’ve experienced to that point in my life. From loss to love, heartbreak to self-improvement, I’ve learned to always find the silver lining in life, or the blessing in disguise, no matter how obvious or hidden it is.
“We all experience heartbreak, we all crave the feeling of joy and success, we all face disappointment, and we all want to be loved. As an artist, it’s my responsibility to be vulnerable enough through the stories I write and to create a space where others can come to the realization that no one is alone… We’re all in this together.
“Just like everyone, I’m figuring it all out one day at a time. I view my career not as ‘me’ but as ‘we’ — how can we be better versions of ourselves? How can we love ourselves more, so we can love others and the planet just as much? How can we make this world a better place? I’m committed to a lifelong process of creating music and stories that leave an impact for the better. The work can’t be wrong and it can never be done. I’m loving every second.”
