Lyrics – Time Will Tell

Image Posted on

I often get asked about my lyrics – what they mean, or what a certain song is a about.

So I thought I’d start a little series and post up some of my favourite lyrics over the next couple months. To start the ball rolling these are from my most recent single, Time Will Tell. I was inspired by the writing style of Ronnie James Dio on this song. Maybe you can tell!? Would love to hear your comments.  Are you surprised by what the lyrics actually are? Especially if you’ve been singing along something completely different! 😉

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

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

Janey x
