LULLABIES: Check out our latest interview with the brilliant Jane James!

1 - What was your first musical memory and what pushed you towards perusing a career in the record industry?
"My first musical memory would probably be singing into my granddad's microphone and speakers when I was very young! What pushed me was the feeling of being on stage and having more confidence than I would when I'm off stage as I can be quite reserved and quiet, I tend not to hold back on stage and the real me comes out."
2 - Had you been involved with any other bands prior to becoming a solo artist as Jane James?
"Yes, I played bass for a solo artist called Becca Lancina."
3 - Why did you choose to become a solo artist instead of forming a band?
"I tend to write music better when I'm on my own, I tend to hold back a lot when I'm with other people, when I'm on my own I can fully express myself without worrying about what a band member thinks about it."
4 - How would you describe the sound of Jane James?
"I personally would describe the sound as melancholic, soulful and occasionally smooth."

"I can't promise this but maybe mid next year, I am yet to start recording!"
8 - Any live dates coming up?
