Jayme Dawicki Shatter Queen



2012 brought much excitement to piano pop-rock artist Jayme Dawicki and her newest album “Love Love”! She was a finalist for four Radio Milwaukee Awards (Best solo artist, song/catchiest song for “72 ½ Toyota Truck”, and album artwork), a nominee for best album, and she performed at the awards ceremony at Turner Hall Ballroom.

She was also nominated for five WAMI (WI Area Music Industry) awards: Best album “Love Love”, Best song “72 ½ Toyota Truck”, Pop Artist, Female Vocalist, and Keyboardist of the Year. In addition, her song “Joe Barry” took the Runner-Up prize in the AAA/Alternative category for the 8th IAMA Competition (International Acoustic Music Awards which is a division of the USA Songwriting Competition) along with her song “Save Me” making it to the top 10 for the Best Female Singer category.

Finally her song “Take My Heart” was heard on MTV’s “Teen Mom 2” and had previously aired on MTV’s “Sixteen and Pregnant”. Jayme’s album “Shatter Queen” has also seen much success with her songs being featured on MTV’s “The Real World Hollywood and Brooklyn” plus “I Used To Be Fat”, along with NBC’s “Last Comic Standing”, The CW’s “America’s Next Top Model”, the Lifetime Network, Kohl’s Department in-store radio station, and Pandora.com. Milwaukee native Jayme has toured across the country from coast to coast and down South including New York’s The Bitter End, Denver’s The Walnut Room, Hollywood’s Room 5 Lounge, and Milwaukee’s Summerfest. She showcased at SXSW 2012 in Austin for the Heart of Texas Rockfest, Red Gorilla Music Fest, and the Invasion of the GoGirls. Jayme also performed at the 2011 Dewey Beach Music Conference and the 2011 We R Indie International Music Conference. Her music can be heard in regular rotation on Radio Milwaukee 88.9 FM, WUWM 89.7 FM “At Nite”, and WMSE 91.7 FM.

In the past Jayme has opened for major label acts The Fray, Sophie B. Hawkins, and Ferras and was the winner for the 2006 WAMI Female Vocalist of the Year award. An interesting final fact: Jayme was Miss Wisconsin 2002 and spent her year promoting the importance of the fine arts in schools. “Love Love” and “Shatter Queen” were produced and engineered by Daniel Mendez (Dashboard Confessionals, Lit, Duran Duran, Heart, Noah Gundersen, Meg and Dia).
