Jane O'Brien Band
Prize winners at the SummerJazz Festival, Pinneberg 2017.
Together with her band, Jane O’Brien has developed her own original sound – a spicy mix of jazz and pop, with chilled out beats and Irish roots, tempered with passion and the richness and pathos of her jazz/folk voice.
When it comes to material for a song, for the Irish singer songwriter nothing is sacred. Her songs are a snapshot album of her experiences and observations. Songs such as “Banshee” or “Sanctuary” contain the cry and longing of her Irish soul whereas “I‘m never coming back” an answer to telephone terror, “My time” or “Peacetime” reveal a raw gutsy honesty that is typical of Jane O‘Brien. Her roots are firmly based in jazz, folk and pop, but she will delve into other styles to suit a song, such as the drum + bass inspired “Blooming” or reggae for Mr. Armani.
Jane O'Brien takes her listeners on a journey through today's world, showing us people and situations we can all relate to.
