Thanks and a sneak preview…

Posted on Updated on

A MASSIVE thank you to everyone who has sent get well messages and encouragement over the last couple months, it has really been appreciated, thank you.

I’m pleased to say I’m well on the road to recovery, thank God! I’m about to start back rehearsing with my cover’s band Almost The Hero this week – I haven’t sung properly since going into the studio last December to record ‘Time Will Tell’, so it’s going to be a bit daunting, but great to get back into singing again.

If you haven’t had a chance to listen yet, you can hear the new tracks at http://janeysummer.bandcamp.com/  I’d love to know what you think, so please get in touch!

Meanwhile, I’ve been getting some great reviews for ‘Time Will Tell’, which has been amazing! The latest one from Femme Metal, is just about to be published, but you can get a sneak preview at http://femalefrontedmetal.wordpress.com/ Many thanks to Tony Cannella for that fantastic review.

The news for the future is that I have just relocated to Bristol – hoping that life here will open up more opportunities for me musically. I’m working on a band project called ‘The Avowed’ – and I will update you all on that, with hopefully live shows to tell you about very soon!

Thanks again for all your support and care, it really means a lot to me!

Love and light

Actually Good News At Christmas!

Posted on Updated on

Well it’s that awesome time of year again, and what a year it has been for me! Definitely NOT one I’d like to repeat; lots of illness, heartache and pain, but I’m so thankful to God that now Christmas is upon us I’m finally coming out the other side of it all. So I’m looking forward to some good times with my family and friends before a fresh (and healthier) start to 2012!

Meantime there’s some fantastic news for you to finish off the year…. My new single has now been released! Wahoo!

‘Time Will Tell’ is now available for download from my online store at http://janeysummer.bandcamp.com/  as well as all major download sites – take your pick, my friends; all the links can be found on my music page at www.janeysummer.com/music.html

As well as the new single for download, there is a bonus track, ‘On My Own Again’.

And I’ve pressed these two tracks onto some limited edition CDs available for just £2.50 plus p&p. – also available from http://janeysummer.bandcamp.com/

Thank you all for all your kind support especially over the last few weeks; it has been amazingly inspiring to receive so many good wishes; I’m feeling the love….

I hope you like the new songs; make sure you let me know what you think, and please spread the word!

Wishing you Peace and Love this Christmas,Image

New songs on the way!

Posted on Updated on

First off a big welcome to all the new fans that have signed up since the last news update; it’s really heart-warming to see the support network keep growing.

This is in no small part to fans spreading the word – so a huge thank you all for that! And also the amazing ongoing support I’m getting from so many DJs who just keep on playing my stuff to their listeners old and new – truly awesome stuff!

Those of you who’ve been fans for a while will know that I’ve been rather unwell lately, hence things being a bit quiet on the music front. Well, I’m pleased to say I’ve had my final yukky treatment today and have only 3 weeks to wait until I go in for my operation, so the next few months are going to pretty much revolve around me recovering in pyjamas! Nice.

But there is light at the end of the tunnel and as well as looking forward to being pain and illness-free (wahoo!), I have plans afoot for next year, including more tracks released, and getting a live line-up together, which I’m really excited about. I also plan to relocate to Bristol in the new year, which I hope will bring some fresh opportunities, so all looks good on the horizon!

Meantime, the good news is I’m off to Orchard Studios to record a couple new tracks! I know it’s been a long old wait and many of you have been champing at the bit for some new tunes, so, rather than make y’all wait until I’m recovered (which could be months!) I’ve squeezed in some studio time this weekend and next so I can two new songs released before Christmas. I hope you like them and it was worth the wait! Haha!

It’d be awesome if you want to follow progress on www.facebook.com/janeysummerofficial or on Twitter @janeysummer

Thanks again for all your support, please keep your emails and comments coming in; it’s always really cool to hear from you,

Love & light & rock & roll

Thanks for all the good wishes

Posted on Updated on

Just a quick message to say thanks so much for all the good wishes that you’ve sent me over the last month or so. It has been awesome to get so much support and kind words from so many people :o)

And by way of a quick update on my health, I have now had two lots of pre-op treatment, which so far have gone OK without any bad side effects – the voice is still working, thank God! I am still waiting for a date for my operation, but I’ve been told I need to have at least 3 lots of treatment first to make it safe to operate, so I’m hoping I hear something soon.

Meantime I’m keeping myself busy doing a big bundle of local gigs with my covers band ‘Almost The Hero’ – and our upcoming dates are all at http://www.facebook.com/almostthehero?sk=events for anyone interested in coming along.

As for the original stuff, me and Nick are still working on material, and we have a few songs nearing completion so I’m hoping it won’t be too long until we can get a line-up together and refine the songs ready for live shows and recording.

The next 6 months or so are going to be really tough, but with the support and love I’m getting from friends, family and fans, I’m sure the rocky road I’m on will be made easier!

Oi oi! What’s happening with the new EP, Janey??

Posted on Updated on

Yeah, yeah, I know you are waiting on news of the new EP and the idea was to record some songs for release earlier in the summer.

Well, you know what they say, the best laid plans and all that – for various reasons, things have gone in a direction I hadn’t anticipated.

One of the most influential reasons for the delay is that unfortunately I’ve not been too well of late, and have now found why – I’ve got a rather large tumour growing in my abdomen – youch! The good news is it’s not malignant, but it is massive and growing, so I’m in the queue to have some fairly hefty surgery to remove it. I can’t go in for the op straight away because it’s so big it could cause me problems on the operating table, so meantime I’ll be having some pretty yukky hormone treatment for a few months to shrink the bugger. Unfortunately (but rather amusingly) they’ve told me it could make me hairier, make my boobs shrink and affect my voice temporarily! I only hope I don’t grow a pair of nuts! God help me!! Seriously, though, the last thing I want to do is record myself sounding like Lemmy, so I just need to be patient, and wait till I recover to record – I hope you will all understand and I can only apologise to those of you who have been champing at the bit waiting for news of the new release. I hope you can be patient with me – I definitely hope to record another solo release soon, it just won’t be as soon as I’d first planned!

The other thing that’s happened is that, as well as writing on my own, I’ve taken the plunge and started working on some material with a new guitarist – Nick Williams. Things are shaping up very well so far, though I do say so myself. The new songs have a definite heavier more dramatic edge to them – for those of you that like ‘Sometimes’ and ‘Between Two Worlds’ then you should be in for a treat….

Anyway, both me and Nick are both really keen to get a live line-up together very soon, so we can get out there and gig the songs for you before heading into the studio as a band, as well as me recording as a solo artist.

So, lots going on in the background, as you can see!

Thanks to everyone for their well wishes and support so far – have no fear, this girl’s got plenty of rock left in her!

Love & light,

Janey x
