Reviews for Magdalene the Single

"Songs, if fashioned properly at least, have the ability speak through their music whilst having a second conversation via their lyrics. The art of it of course is to make sure that both musical dialogues are in tune (pun intended) with each other. Magdalene is the perfect example of just how you do this. If the music conjures the breezy, recently electrified vibe of late 60’s Laurel Canyon, the one place where the Summer of Love had actually coalesced into a community of free-thinking creatives, in turn a springboard to all manner of iconic bands, the lyrics describe exactly the sort of bohemian princess who could be found dancing through it."  Dave Franklin

Magdalene ~ OUT NOW

Magdalene ~ OUT NOW

"Bringing together the intimacy of Leonard Cohen with the buoyancy of Reba McEntire, Jane’s singles are emotive and infectious with lyrical depth. I can’t wait to hear the new album!"  Nicole Mendes , Nexus Music Blog

"The new single “Magdalene” has a country rock sway which comes packed with a satisfying unmuffled squelch and twinkly guitar. The voice is scrubstone-denim and mulberry wine: so it yields the aroma of brambled apple-blossom. Yep, this is fragrantly filigreed and frocked!"  Raw Ramp

 “Magdalene” serves as one of those soulful bits of balladry that truly transcend genre, proving Jane Allison to be a skilled singer-songwriter and a welcome addition to that grand tradition".  Sarah Thomas , Fruit Sonic

"What a beautiful voice Jane Allison has." Noir Rock by Edgar Allan Poets

"If you’re a fan of Sheryl Crow and/or Lo Carmen, this track will soothe your soul" Walter Price, Global Texan Chronicles

“Magdalene” is the musical equivalent of a sunny day spent next to a loved one as well as the bittersweet feeling of wishing the day could last just a little bit longer." Less Than blog, JPGChief

Methylene Blue featured on Dancing About Architectures Spotify penultimate playlist of the year

"As 2017 went through its final handful of rewarding weeks, it is fair to say it produced some of its biggest musical treats, one of which was the new album from singer songwriter Jane Allison." The RingMaster 

"Jane Allison is a bright spark in folk inspired invention"  The RingMaster Review

"With a country theme throughout and with influences from Bob Dylan and Neil Young, Jane Allison provided an album of Americana sounds that combines passion, nostalgia and great vocals to boot." The Flux

"spacious and soft, yet emotionally gripping."  Rock Time DE

"It’s a clean and polished country gem hidden amidst the city smog" Bristol Live
