WANTED has been hailed as a Country rock Opera full of sound effects & and is a musical journey with a big serving of spaghetti Western on the side, receiving rave reviews throughout the industry including:
● Lee Kernaghan (“Backroad Nation”, "Flying with the King”, 38 time Golden Guitars and 2x ARIA award winner): “I've had Jayne Denham’s brand-new album, “Wanted” totally cranking in the ute. Fully loaded with hits… it’s new country…. and western music at its best.” ● Gina Jeffreys (“Dancin’ With Elvis”, “Angel”, ARIA Nominated and 5 time Golden Guitars award winner): “Jayne Denham is truly one the most exciting female vocalists Australia has seen in a long time! She is gutsy, fierce and honest. Jaynes new album WANTED is a breath of fresh air in a world of similarity. Breath taking vocals, amazing new songs and beautiful production! Congratulations Jayne!” Jayne has written and recorded with some of the biggest names in the business including producer Brian White (Jason Aldean, Gary Alan), writers Jerry Salley (Reba McEntire "I'm Gonna Take That Mountain"), and Phil Barton (Lee Kernaghan “I Don’t Dance”).

In 2017, her high-octane reputation caught the attention of US promoters, who invited her to perform at the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, Texas, leading to a demand for her to be constantly touring America for the past two years. Also known for her trucking songs, her deep connection with American audiences and the trucker community led to Jayne becoming Ambassador for the Women In Trucking Association, in the US. Jayne has written and recorded with some of the biggest names in the business including producer Brian White, and writers Jerry Salley, Phil Barton, and Jennifer Schott,
With her ability to tell a story that captures the imagination through her songs, Denham has scored four #1 smash hits in Australia, six Top 10 songs in the National Country Charts, 12 videos that have reached the Top 30, including a number 1 placement for Hung Up on You, which garnered a million streams within 6 months of release.

Jayne has released four albums Sudden Change in Weather (2008), Shake This Town (2010), Renegade (2013) and Calamity (2018). The single, Chick Ute, from her debut album charted at #2 in Europe and Norway, #4 in Italy, #5 in the Netherlands and Denmark and #12 on the European Country Music Association Chart. Soon after the release of Sudden Change in Weather, Jayne Denham won the Australian Independent Country Music Award for Best Rising Star.
Jayne's strong connection to the trucking industry has also earned her sponsorship from companies including Wickham Freight Lines. She has three promotional semi-trailers that can be spotted on Wickham Freight Lines' trucks up and down Australia's East Coast.
