Rockingham WA Australia
Jasmine Atkins is a fresh and vibrant personality on the Australian Music landscape, quickly winning over audiences with her infectious personality, honest storytelling and distinctive vocals. Her sound draws reference from from the likes of Kasey Chambers, Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood, who all inspire different facets of Atkins musical delivery.
Jasmine started performing at the age of three, teaching herself to read music, and was even writing songs by eight.
Graduating from the CMAA Academy of Country Music in 2015, she was immediately hungry for success. In February that year, Jasmine was awarded the WA Country Music Award for Songwriter of the Year. She also won the 2016 CCMA National Talent Quest and competed in the Trans-Tasman Entertainer of the Year Competition, taking home the Most Promising Artist title.
The year 2017 kicked off with three WA Country Music Award nominations, and the June release of Jasmine's debut video clip for her single “Sun Will Come Out Again”. Continuing her award-season form, Atkins was nominated in 2018 for another five WA Country Music Awards, taking home the Emerging Artist award.
Her latest single “Get Gone” packs plenty of attitude and was released on October 15, 2018 achieving an iTunes Country Single chart spot of 5. This spot turned heads as it placed her as the second highest Australian artist behind Morgan Evans and as the only female performer in the top 10 on the chart.
The song features the raw vocal delivery of Atkins, and distinctive stylings of Sydney-based producer Michael Carpenter. It was co-written by Atkins and Golden Guitar winner Kirsty Lee Akers.
