"I'm delighted and astonished by the response I've had. I'd long since given up any hope of doing anything with my music. Let's face it, I'm a thirty something mother of three, hardly 'rock star' material, yet it doesn't seem to matter. In the current climate of an image dominated music industry I never believed I would stand a chance, yet given the choice, people really don't seem to care that much about age, looks or status. They just like the songs and it's brilliant.it's exactly what music should be about." Jane
Close Up and Real is a wonderful debut album from UK writer Jane which demonstrates her quite exceptional songwriting abilities and spans the first 10 years of her writing career. The tight, quirky backing vocals which have become her signature sound, are evident throughout most tracks and of course each song is complemented by the outstanding musicianship of the individual players.

Featured on CLOSE UP AND REAL are: Pete Jacobsen piano, Dave Bronze bass guitar, Wendy Roberts backing vocals, Al Christie electric piano, Lance Oliver violin, Reg Webb piano, keyboards backing vocals

 

Reviews

 

05/02/2003 Carl Eve - Echo Newspapers

"Close Up And Real is Jane's recently released debut album. The 17 tracks on this album would not be out of place being played on Radio Two prime time. You could easily imagine Wogan or Parkinson singing its praises. The production is brilliant, the harmonies top notch and every instrument is finely placed - no one musician hogs a track, letting Jane's rich and rounded voice take the fore. Jane is Essex's Kirsty Macoll, Tori Amos, Sheryl Crow, Carly Simon or Aimee Mann. She's a treasure and proof that the present music industry really hasn't got its finger on the pulse. Whenever she plays next, treat yourself and go and hear her".

 

01/01/2003 By Gillian Nash LOGO MAGAZINE

" Jane has the kind of voice that would have garnered an invitation for a guest spot on a John Lee Hooker album, were the grand old man still around to be impressed. It’s an ‘adult’ album then, and her impressively diverse vocal style lands most often in territory marked by the directness of Mel C .. and the sugar of Joni Mitchell, wearing a careworn and lovelorn fatalism that infects even the cheeriest material. A singer-songwriter in the traditional vein, she’s as clever with a couplet as Paul Simon, and as adept at hiding a barb behind a deceptively innocent delivery as Carole King …‘Close Up And Real’ is an entertaining and rewarding examination of the seedier margins of modern life".
