Hello folks, I am just about to head off to the studio in Belgium to embark on recording my new album "Like Magdalene".
This will be my 3rd collaboration with musical wizard, musician and producer Alonza Bevan.
An album of ten motley Americana songs, some written in Neukolln Berlin, others by the rugged seas off the coast of Wales and the rest in my reclusive cottage in heart the West Country.
Good musical vibrations, lots of tea, hills and forests create a harmonious atmosphere for the task ahead as we get stuck into album number three..."Like Magdalene"

"Love in all its forms is the foundation that this album is built on and even in its most heart tugging and reflective moments there is always a hope filled “chaser” sweet with the taste of optimism just around the corner." Dancing About Architecture
“ Drunk with the beauty of Mitya! All today I was incoherent.I tell you,there is a barbaric splendor about you that conquered not only me,but everyone who saw you. You are made to conquer,not be conquered... You could have the world at your feet” Love letters from Violet Trefusis to Vita Sackville-West - 1918
Mercurial and brooding, lilting cowboy balladry. Haunting and pretty Americana folk, laced with a melancholic darkness.
Telling tales of dereliction, salvation, obsession & allure, with the title track inspired in parts by the breathtaking love letters of Violet Trefusis to Vita Sackville-West, the album “Methylene Blue” is an homage to triumph, defiance, the heroine, the daughter, and the muse. A confession of the measure of amore and contrition.
Methylene Blue is Jane’s second self penned album, another collaboration with musician and producer Alonza Bevan. Recorded in fits and starts during Kula Shaker’s 2016 anniversary & K2.0 world tour, using whatever instruments were left behind in their studio in Belgium, it also features the enchanting voice of Audrey Evans (Mediæval Bæbes) on backing vocals.
Amidst a time of great personal loss and during the devastating attack on Brussels, the Lompret studio and the songs themselves became Jane’s anchorage, a safe haven, fortified with esprit de corps and great quantities of tea.
