ONE MORE SHOW AT THE CAMERON HOUSE!

I can’t believe we are playing our last Wednesday at the Cameron House this week before we head back to Saskatoon!  We will surely be serving snacks again this week, and there are rumors of others also bringing snacks to share with everyone. Thanks to Genevieve and Danielle for your amazing maple pie last week! It was sooo delicious!  We have had a great time here in Toronto and I will be sad to go. I hope to return in November after I record my album with John Keane in Athens, Georgia this October. We have met so many wonderful people and seen so much great music, it has been a truly humbling experience. A special thanks to Cosmo Ferraro and the staff at the Cameron House for giving us such a great opportunity. I would also like to give a very special thanks to our hosts Lee Fraser and Stephen Jones for their amazing hospitality, their kick ass house concerts, and for making it possible for us to follow our dreams. To Melanie Brulee, It was so wonderful to meet you! Thank you for joining us and making our shows in Ottawa and Kingston rock and for hookin’ us up with a spot at the Painted Lady this Tuesday! It was so nice to meet all your friends and get to know you better. I’m so glad we were able to kick in for your new bike! Thanks for setting that up Jadea Kelly, it was wonderful to meet you too!

Hope to see as many of you out as we can for our last show this Wednesday the 28th from 6pm-8pm!

CAMERON HOUSE RESIDENCY AND MAY TOUR!

I can’t even tell you how excited I am to get back on the road after such a long break! Two Saskatchewan winters in recovery in a row surely has made me shack wacky J   I’m even more excited that this journey begins at the wonderful one and only Cameron House in Toronto this Wednesday evening. If you’re in Toronto, come on down to the Cameron House from 6-8 pm any Wednesday evening this May. John will be kicking things off at 6 and I’m at 7, and of course we will both be accompanying one another. John and I also have a couple co-writes in the mix and you can bet I’ve been writing so you can expect to hear some new stuff from me too! We aren’t stopping there though! We will be heading out to surrounding areas so be sure to check out our tour schedule to find out where we’ll be! None of this would be possible without the support of our friends and fans and the Saskatchewan Arts Board! I want to give a huge shout out to our hosts Lee and Stephen. They are 2 of the most wonderfully generous people I know. Thank you for giving us a home to come to in Toronto, and Thank you for being such amazing music supporters in your community. The world needs more you’s J

Cameron House Residency, May tour, New Album Plans

April 2nd, 2014

I wouldn’t know where to start to re-cap the last year in the world of Jen Lane. In the midst of a year long rehabilitation process after foot/ankle surgery, time moved painfully slow. Over 3 months in a cast will have that effect on anybody, lol. Of course now it seems like it flew by. I’m getting back into the swing of things and it feels great. I’ve been feeling better than I have in a long long time and have found myself diving back in to my writing and taking on some great projects that I’m really excited about. 2014 is going to be a great year!  The plans are already in motion to release a “Duets” record with John Antoniuk this fall followed by a full Canadian tour! I’ve also been awarded a Rawlco Radio 10K20 Grant and I’m making plans for a Jen Lane release in 2015.

Presently, I am pleased to be working with local artist Sarah Farthing on my first album production project outside of my own works. I am really enjoying being on this end of the studio for a change. I’m also enjoying working with this group of amazing energy and personality. Josh Palmer, also engineering the project, as well as Veronique Poulin, Fred Farthing (Sarah’s Dad), and rhythm section Brett Williams aka, SaltOnMooseMeat, and Jordan Welbourne. Week one went fantastic! Looking forward to the next round! And looking forward to finally getting back in touch with all of you! Till next time J
