Band Update

Posted on Updated on

After a successful run through with songwriter and guitarist Rob Male on Monday, I’m very pleased to say Rob will be joining me as the first fully fledged member of the band! YEAH!

Rob has written some amazing songs, which are going to sound awesome alongside mine, so we are both really excited about working together :o)

Auditions for the bassist and drummer are happening on 22nd and 24th October, so watch this space for the outcome of that!

My Band – its on the way!

Posted on Updated on

Hey hey!

After spending what seems like far too long doing solo and acoustic spots, I’m VERY excited about finally getting a rockin’ band together to gig with! YEAH!

I’m working with a couple of top-notch songwriters – with the aim of including their awesome material alongside mine in the set, which is going to be an absolute blinder :o)

Auditions are happening over the next couple of weeks, and if all goes to plan, I’ll be able to announce the line up by the end of this month!

We are aiming to start touring the South West, Midlands and South from January – can’t blimming wait :o)

Let’s Rock!

Posted on Updated on

Please vote for me on The People’s Music Awards!

Vote at http://www.thepeoplesmusicawards.com/janeysummer/

The voting is a bit more complicated than other comps, as there are 10 weekly rounds and voters have to vote for at least 3 songs – the aim is to deter cheating and get the audience more involved. There are some great acts registered so have a good ole’ listen :o)

The 10 songs with the most points (one from each round) will go forward to a panel of expert judges, and then will have a final public vote after 10 weeks. All the info about how to vote is on http://www.thepeoplesmusicawards.com/tpma/votingrules.shtml

Thank you all again!

AWESOME review in local music press!

Posted on Updated on

The September issue of Scrumpy ‘n’ Western mag has just been published, and they’ve reviewed my EP!

It’s a completely AWESOME review!! I’m just bowled over! Here’s a snippet:

“Well Janey you have really learnt your craft over the past two years, you have now been to one of the country’s top studios ‘Sprint Studios’…. You have reworked an excellent song that should be racing up the charts, yes that good!!! With ‘Lie Along the Way’ and track three the excellent ‘You Rock (My Chemistry)’ again foot tapping, sing along, magic…. You really do have your own style, and on further investigation you are also out gigging, which is good. You really do deserve to go places with this recording, and I hope you get the attention you so rightly have been working for. I have not stopped playing this CD and everyone who I have played it to agrees, chart material, if only some of these A & R men would wake up and get real!”
