New directions and new songs

Posted on Updated on

Lately I’ve been working on lots of new songs, and a recent change in my circumstances has meant if all goes to plan, I should be able to get into the studio by the end of the year to record and release a new EP.  I’m very excited and happy about that at long last!

And I’m loving the new material! I have to warn you tho, my lovely people, that it is a bit of departure from the ‘straight’ rock you might all be expecting from me.  It still shows my passion and heart, but its a little more pensive, thought provoking and got a definite ‘alt’ edge to it. Hopefully you will like it too.

‘Live’-wise, the ultimate aim is still to get a band line up established, but so far my efforts in that department haven’t proved fruitful. It’s frustrating at times, but I have too much of a drive and passion to just sit and wait around for other people! So meantime, I’ve decided to strip things back for a while and put together an acoustic set!

Could be interesting – it’s already having a positive impact and and opening up potential avenues for performances in places I wouldn’t be able to get into with a band – including the local prison!

All the while, it’s awesome and humbling to still have new people discovering the music, and I’m really looking forward to seeing how the new stuff shapes up – both live and in the studio.

Much love x

Thanks and a sneak preview…

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
