Double headline show with Jane Willow & Vinny Clohisey. Jane will also be launching her second single (+music video) for ‘Onward Still’. Acoustic, intimate show.
Jane Willow is a Dutch singer-songwriter who moved to Ireland at age twenty-one to pursue music after a stint of studying songwriting at a Dutch Music College. Her music is laced with Leonard Cohen and Nick Drake influences and her light vocals are often compared to the likes of Norah Jones and Lisa Hannigan. In her music she experiments with folk, jazz and classical elements, whilst keeping her rich, soft and velvet-like voice at center stage.
In recent years Jane’s played an incredible amount of gigs, frequenting venues like Vicar Street, Whelan’s, The Workman’s Club and Galway’s Roisin Dubh. In August 2017 she opened for Glen Hansard in Vicar Street. She followed this gig with a full band show in the Grand Social. In November Jane successfully raised over 4000 euro on fundit.ie for her first EP.
On her debut EP she collaborates with Dave Hingerty (drums: Kila, The Frames), Vyvienne Long (cello: Damien Rice) and regular band members Joanna Marie Burke (backing vocals), Eoin Healy (bass), Derek Copley (mandolin) and Scott Flanigan (keys). On August 30th she releases her second single ‘Onward Still’, while her EP is due for release in November.
“This single [On My Mind] shows great promise which has all of the hallmarks of a bone fide authentic folk artist about to make a mark.” – REMY
