Jane’s introduction to music came from sneaking downstairs at night to hear the classical chamber music her parents and their friends were playing, and later by listening nonstop to folk music, pop, and jazz from all over the world. She started to play guitar at 15, and began to sing and play at local coffeehouses, college campuses, and on public television as the resident folk singer. She has a graduate degree in music history and composition, and has published her classical choral music with Transcontinental Music in New York.
Her albums include the folk-based “This Beautiful Feeling”; the country-influenced “Wind Off The Water”, recorded in Nashville; “Peace of the River”, recorded in Detroit with some of the best jazz musicians in the Midwest; and now “Midnight Lullaby”, co-produced by Grammy-winner Mac Gayden in Nashville.
Jane started collecting lullabies in preparation for her first grandchild. “Since the beginning of time, singing lullabies has been a way to express love and comfort. The languages may vary, but the message is exactly the same: ‘I love you very much, I’m here, and now please go to sleep!”
“Midnight Lullaby” is a soothing collection of bedtime songs written by contemporary songwriters. It is sure to help anyone, from babies to grownups and everyone in-between, go to sleep. Sweet dreams!
