Flowers For Jayne


HerStory Behind Us

In June 2016, after a 10 year absence from the music industry and 23 years since she played with the Lime Spiders, Jayne Murphy started exploring how she would make a comeback with her new shape and voice. First she toyed around with the arrangement of a song she wrote in 1995. On My Mind was the song which inspired her to pick up a pen and get moving on with writing new songs as well as rearranging some of her back catalogue.

In 2018, Jayne was living in Brisbane and playing pop up performances in local pubs. She was persuaded by local punters to form a band. But under what name. Hers? Well, a young guitarist (who actually idolised Jayne's guitar playing) raced into a pub one night, ran up to Jayne and exclaimed, "I have a name for your new band. Flowers For Jayne". And that's how it all started. That same year Jayne moved to Vancouver BC, Canada.

After writing several new songs in Vancouver, Jayne decided it was time to record again. In January 2019, she contacted former Lime Spiders bass player Phil Hall and suggested they join forces again and record four songs with high school mate and drummer Jess Ciampa. Could it be done? Phil and Jess were in Sydney. Jayne found a recording studio in New Westminster that could pull it off. From February to March 2019, Flowers For Jayne recorded their first four singles. I Want You was their debut single released in April 2019.

Jayne returned to Sydney in June 2019 to record an album with Phil and Jess. In January 2022, they released their eleven track debut album Dangerous Woman, masterfully mixed by ARIA Engineer Of The Year, Anton Hagop (Silverchair, Powderfinger, Birds Of Tokyo).

May 2022 saw some line-up changes which inspired Jayne to write and record "You're Not What I'm Looking For" with co-producer Bob Spencer (The Angels, Skyhooks, ARIA Hall Of Fame), drummer Jess Ciampa and bass player Bill Gibson. The single was realeased in March 2023.

FFJ are now in their 5th year with 2024 taking the band to new heights and playing several performances across Sydney and NSW. Recently Jayne produced their sophomore multi-track offering In The Keep, released through new partner MGM Distribution in April '24.

Not a traditional hardcore punk band, Flowers For Jayne's unique sonics are an alchemy of pop, punk, garage rock and glam! Tuff'n'Tight!!

Jayne plans to record again with her FFJ family very soon.
