DJ Citizen Jane Has Dual Nationality

Officially, DJ Citizen Jane identifies as an American citizen because she was born in the United States. However, the singer, songwriter, fashion designer, and disc jockey can also identify as a citizen of the Caribbean Islands country Cuba because of her parents’ Latin American identity, which the singer also shares.

Not much is known about DJ Citizen’s parents aside from the fact that they are both Cuban citizens. She knows even less about her father who left when she was very young, a consensus held globally because of the singer’s assertions of being raised by her mother.

DJ Citizen Jane Is Not the 49-Year-Old’s Birth Name

DJ Citizen Jane was born Madeline Fernandez on October 22, 1974. This might come as a surprise to some of her fans who have long acknowledged her as DJ Citizen Jane.

The DJ was always known as Madeline from birth but one fateful school day changed all that when one of her school friends called her Citizen Jane. The name stuck and at the outset of her music career, she decided to adopt the name as a stage name before legally adopting the name to replace her original birth name.

DJ Citizen Jane was born in Miami, Florida, under the birth sign of Libra, and she has spent virtually the entirety of her lifetime in the state of Florida.

Beyond the fact that she has a Psychology degree from Florida International University, details of her early formal educational background are sparse and include her attending an unnamed local high school.

She Has an Estimated Net Worth Of $700k

Financially, DJ Citizen Jane has not done too badly for herself. Her estimated net worth of $700k in 2022 speaks of someone who has taken a the entertainment industry by storm over a short period.

However, as we stated earlier, she was a law enforcement agent before she ventured into the entertainment industry and this means that a part of her net worth came from there even though most of it is believed to have come from her current career. Details of DJ Citizen’s previous and present careers can be seen below.

The DJ Was A Detective With The Miami PD

Before headlining sold-out concerts all over the globe, DJ Citizen Jane used to earn her living as a detective in Florida’s Miami Police Department. Her psychology degree made her a perfect fit for the job in which certain aspects of it required her to accurately assess crime scenes and determine criminal patterns of behavior.

We can not say with accuracy when exactly she joined her hometown’s police department, but a fairly accurate guess would be just after she had bagged the psychology degree that served her so well during her time on the force. She gave it her all but knew she was meant to be doing much more.

So after 10 years, DJ Citizen Jane knew she had had enough of the uniform and as a result, called time on her stay as a police detective. Her reasons for leaving were narrowed down to one encompassing and quite visible purpose of pursuing her dreams to become a musician.

She Is Now A Top Disc Jockey

People who have known DJ Citizen Jane all attest to her huge appetite and passion for music. Some of these sources claim that she began whistling to radio tunes when she was just 2 years old. As she grew, her dreams were focused on forging a clear career path through music.

After her decade-long service to the Miami PD, she finally got around to doing the one thing she truly loved. It must be stated that she didn’t immediately become a disc jockey when she eventually made it to the music industry.

She started by playing with a folk-rock band and as she did so, her confidence grew and she was soon able to perform on stage with live bands.

Next, she joined the Spanish rock band Like Mana and continued her growth and progression in the music business. For some reason, perhaps the feeling of being more in control, DJ Citizen Jane found more fulfillment whenever she played the role of a disc jockey for large audiences.

It didn’t take her long to figure out that she should be doing more of that and she promptly focused her energies on doing just that. Her style of DJing cuts across all platforms including EDM, mixed Top 40, electric pop, and more. She has also mastered the art of party lighting and blends that in with her sturdy performances.

Her performances have grown to the point where she has headlined various concerts, across Latin American countries, Australia, New Zealand, and in several top concerts in the United States.

Her stellar performances have helped her bag the Pink Flamingo Awards in the best DJ category three times in her career. Two of those awards came within two years of each other in 2014 and 2015 while her most recent reception of the award came in 2017.

The talented Disc Jockey dropped her first song titled Rescue Me in July 2019. It became one of the top streaming songs for a while on iTunes and Spotify as well as a trending feature at several music events.

On August 5, 2022, she revealed, through her Twitter page, that her latest song, Too Late, was out on all music platforms including Deezer, Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, TikTok, Pandora, iTunes, Tidal, and more.

Knowing how talented a musician she is, one can expect the song to be on a different level from what most of her fans are used to.

DJ Citizen Jane Is Gay

The disc jockey openly identifies with the LGBTQ community as a lesbian. She further recognizes the impact of members of her family for supporting her sexual preference. She does not speak too much about her romantic relationships but several sources have revealed that she is in a relationship with a woman known as Karen Larrea.
