Next up in my series of ‘what are Janey’s songs all about?’ is Seeing You, from my album Along the Way and also featured on my first EP, Introducing.
I wrote Seeing You a couple years after I lost my brother. One of the themes of the song is about how we remember people we’ve lost. If we are open to sharing in such a painful time, we can hear so many different memories from family and friends. So, although we all knew him, we all did so in different ways. Talking to people about how they knew him was not only a fond way for us to support each other but, for me, it was a journey of getting to know and understand my brother in new ways.
The latest review from Ravenheart Music is now up on their site – in keeping with tradition, Dave Smith has come up with an oh-so-quteable phrase, saying that the b-track ‘On My Own Again’ is a hard rocker’s wet dream.
Here’s the full review:
“JANEY SUMMER..’TIME WILL TELL’ (2 track single)
(Self Release) Reviewed 14th January 2012
I can say quite simply that Janey Summer has an awesome voice and deserves big things. This lass from the SW of England sure does rock. I reviewed an album of hers back in Sept 2008 – ‘Along The Way’ scored a cool 9/10, and I quoted in that review that Janey “has a voice to die for”. ‘Time Will Tell’ is a two track single that also features the track ‘On My Own Again’ and this girl seems to have moved forward leaps and bounds. It is of no surprise to also learn that this single is picking up internet radio airplay, because quite simply, the track (as is ‘On My Own Again’) is totally awesome. ‘Time Will Tell’ features a cool instrumental intro, before Janey’s totally mind blowing vocals carries the number into total dreamland. ‘On My Own Again’ harks back to the 70’s and is a Hard Rocker’s wet dream! It is difficult to score what is just a two track cd, but this is good, very good!! Effectively, this is powerful melodic hard from Janey (and her band!), so check her out here.”
Why, thank you Dave!
