Whyalla Recording Scholarship (WRS) winner Jaylee Daniels has had a hugely positive response to the release of her second single, with "Tonight" reaching #3 on the iTunes Australia Singer Songwriter Chart.

Her previous single, "Papa's Song", topped out at #7 on the iTunes Australia Country Chart in 2019, making this her most successful release yet.

In the first 36 hours after the song's release, Jaylee scored airplay on two UK radio stations, as the message behind "Tonight" continued to resonate with the public.

Jaylee said she was "absolutely thrilled" with the response to the single, which encourages those going through tough periods in their lives o reach out for support.

"To hear 'Tonight' on radio is unbelievable but to know it's being played in other parts of the world is just surreal," she said.

"I love knowing people in the UK or USA have heard my song all the way from Outback Australia and I'm so thankful for the support these radio stations have given to my music.

"People seem to be really connecting with the song's message, and I always try to take onboard every comment to make my writing and performing stronger.

"I'm super proud of 'Tonight' and hope it will comfort anyone who's going through a rough time and who just needs someone to lean on."

To follow up on this success, Jaylee has been working on a music video for the single, a process that she 'really loves'.

"My team are so supportive and help me to relax and enjoy the process which makes it easier," she said.

"You'd be amazed at the hundreds of hours and focus it takes to record and produce a video - I'm super excited and can't wait for everyone to see it."
