LONG BIO

With roots in her father’s favorites—Louis Jordan, Sarah Vaughan, Gene Krupa—Jane’s music evolved through the decades to form her personal blend of Americana.

On the other side of Jane’s childhood bedroom wall, her father’s giant mono-speaker blasted all the Big Band greats—Glen Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Stan Kenton, Anita O’Day. These were Jane’s lullabies and formed the base rhythms for the rest of her life. Having three older brothers deeply into rock and roll, she later soaked up everything they listened to, from Zappa, to Hendrix, and Joni Mitchell.

Great artists counsel to “start where you are” when creating. An important part of where Jane started was her father’s Creole family from Louisiana. Creoles enjoy cooking with everything available, and they always give everyone a lagniappe—a little extra. Jane’s music is like that, a delicious blend of the music she loves, served up with a little extra.

From one song to the next, Jane’s music moves effortlessly from light jazz to heavy blues. Her lyrics, the product of careful attention and living life fully, range from playful to deeply spiritual.

It’s clear that performing is a pleasure for Jane. Accompanying herself on guitar for her solo concerts, Jane engages her audience with heartfelt, innocent joy and depth of feeling.
