Gillian Tuite: “Impressively polished … dealing with matters of the heart” – Anglo-Celt
Jane Willow: “evokes the bare sound of Joan Baez … a bone fide authentic folk artist about to make a mark.” – REMY
Jane Willow is a Dutch folk musician who moved to Ireland at age twenty-one to pursue music. Her music is laced with Leonard Cohen and Nick Drake influences.
In recent years Jane’s played an incredible amount of gigs, performing at Vicar Street, Whelan’s and Electric Picnic. Jane’s supported the likes of Glen Hansard and Kíla and has been featured in The Irish Times, The Irish Times Women’s Podcast, RTE Radio 1, Radio Nova, Lyric FM and BBC Radio Ulster.
On her debut EP ‘Onward Still’ she collaborates with musicians Dave Hingerty (drums: Kíla, Josh Ritter), Vyvienne Long (cello: Damien Rice). In 2019 Jane plans to delve deeper into her folk style with another single release and a run of live shows.
“It comes from a genuine place, this is about the music, … and it takes a gifted song-writer to let their craft alone carry their message in such a wonderfully enjoyable way.” – REMY
‘Onward Still’ is a precious collection of tracks that flow on sweet luscious melodies, pristine musicianship and a purity that is mesmerising.’ Indie Buddie
