Me Lost Me is the electronic music project of Newcastle based musician Jayne Dent, current Artist in Residence at internationally renowned concert venue The Sage Gateshead. Described by BBC Radio 6's Tom Robinson as a "brilliant peculiar noise", Me Lost Me delights in experimenting with genre, taking influence from folk, electronica, art pop, ambient and noise music to create a beguiling mix of soaring vocals, synth, field recordings and hypnotic rhythms. Her live shows are atmospheric, dark and playful, with a repertoire that explores storytelling through original songs, improvisations and reworkings of traditional ballads.

Following the release of her debut album 'Arcana' in 2018 she has been touring the UK extensively, and her second album 'The Good Noise' released in November 2020, described as 'stunning' and 'remarkable' by NARC Magazine demonstrates a maturing of her sound and a deepening of her exploration of site and experiments with genre.

Jayne is also a visual and sound artist, performing and exhibiting around the UK and Europe and gaining recent attention for her livestreams and online works. She leads community music workshops with Creative Spaces CIC and is a host of regular open mic nights and a monthly show on CAMPFR radio.
Jayne was supported by the Transmission Fund in 2019.
With the support from Help Musicians I will put together the visual materials (press photographs and music videos) for a new EP of music that I am writing and producing during my artist residency at Sage Gateshead. It will also pay for two remixes which will be released alongside the singles, and for mastering of the whole release to bring everything up to a high industry standard.

The fund will also support a PR campaign for this EP release, which will give my professional profile a huge boost and allow me to advance in my career by expanding my audience beyond my current contacts in the North East region.
