Originally from the West Coast and now living in the Northeast, Jane is an award winning songwriter and veteran performer whose smooth, rich voice and well-written songs get noticed. With vocals that have been called “angelic” and “mesmerizing”, her original songs “combine humor, intelligence, and deep musicality with an artfulness that is unusual.” (Wildy Haskell).
In 2015 her most recent release, Tangled in a A Tree, was nominated of album of the year by Limelight magazine and Jane was selected to perform a juried showcase at the Northeast Regional Folk Festival. She has performed locally at may venues including the Boston Folk Festival, The LindenTree Coffeehouse and the Bull Run Restaurant.
Jane recently won the Woody Guthrie and Will McLean Songwriting Competitions and has been a finalist in several songwriting competitions such as South Florida, Great River, Solar Fest, The Mid-Atlantic contest, and the prestigious Rose Garden Coffeehouse Competition. Her songs have placed in the Pennsylvania Heritage Songwriting Competition, the Neuse River MusicFest competition, and the West Coast Songwriter’s Competition as well.
Jane is also an author whose book about her father’s life journey, from sharecropper’s son to cowboy, is chronicled in her new book “Seven Songs in Seven Days: The Journey of an Arkansas Traveler”. Review Corinne Smith says “ Seven Songs” offers “not only good storytelling but also a few peeks into the creative process of songwriting” and offers us the opportunity to “better understand the paths we take.”
“One of the good artists in a sea of soulless clutter.” Cyrus Rhodes, Indie Music Magazine.
