Newcastle country artists make Toyota Star Maker Grand Final

Newcastle based country artists, Katie Jayne and Max Jackson have made the 2022 Toyota Star Maker competition’s top ten!

Their entries were chosen alongside seven other artists from regional NSW and one from regional Queensland.

“This year’s top ten are a truly inspiring and talented bunch, who come from a diverse range of backgrounds and talents, who’ve also managed to continue with their craft despite the past 18-months,” Toyota Star Maker Coordinator Cheryl Brown said

“I have no doubt that the 2022 Grand Final concert will be one tough, but exciting competition!”

The top ten finalists will make their way to the 2022 Toyota Country Music Festival in January, where they will perform two of their songs on stage at the Star Maker Grand Final on the opening weekend of the Festival at Toyota Park.
