From our promo for this concert:
Lindsay Jane’s professional career as a singer-songwriter was jump-started in 1999 when she took first place in a songwriting competition in Alberta. She traveled throughout Canada for several years as a solo performer before joining the Wyrd Sisters, for whom she played lead guitar in 2003-04.
Jane grew up in Calgary, where her singer-songwriter group included Steve Forbert, Chip Taylor, and Gordie Johnson. Calgary Magazine has called her “a deft interpreter of powerful emotion,” and her voice has been compared to Liza Minelli’s.
She is a popular performer on the festival circuit, having performed at the Ottawa Folk Music Festival, Winnipeg Folk Festival, Minnesota Folk Festival, Stan Roger Folk Festival, and the Trout Forest Festival. She has been featured in showcases at Prairie Music Week, last year’s SXSW in Austin, Texas, and the Canada Folk Alliance.
Lindsay Jane’s debut CD Starting Today has received good press in Canada, where she is billed as much more than a folk or roots music singer.
