Jay Aston and Bucks Fizz

Jay Aston was born in Birmingham, England, in 1959. She began singing at a young age and eventually joined a local band called Family Tree. In 1981, she auditioned for the British television talent show A Song for Europe, which was seeking a group to represent the UK in the Eurovision Song Contest. Aston was selected as a member of Bucks Fizz along with fellow vocalists Bobby G, Cheryl Baker, and Mike Nolan.


Bucks Fizz quickly became popular in the UK and Europe, thanks partly to their energetic live performances and catchy pop songs. In addition to “Making Your Mind Up,” the group had several other hits, including “The Land of Make Believe” and “My Camera Never Lies.” Aston’s powerful and distinctive voice was a key part of Bucks Fizz’s sound, and she often sang lead on their biggest hits.


In 1984, Bucks Fizz released their fourth studio album, Writing on the Wall. The album spawned several successful singles, including “New Beginning (Mamba Seyra)” and “Golden Days.” However, Aston left the group later that year to pursue a solo career. She released her debut solo album, “Journey,” in 1986. The album included the single “Somewhere in My Heart,” which became a hit in the UK and Europe.


After her solo album, Aston continued to perform and record music. She re-joined Bucks Fizz for a reunion tour in 1991, and the group released a new album, “Are You Ready,” in 1993. In 1996, Aston left Bucks Fizz again to focus on her solo career. She released her second solo album, “Dreams,” in 1998 and continued to tour and perform as a solo artist.
