Welsh singer songwriter and actress Jane Allison Stanness (Nighty Night/Hunderby) is releasing her debut solo Americana album Just Another Girl under the name Jane Allison.
Written in Berlin in 2011 while Jane was living there amidst the soft lit, subterranean, demiurgic world of artists, misfits and poets, the record was recorded and produced in 2013 by Alonza Bevan at Kula Shakers studio’s deep in the heart of the Ardennes in Belgium. It was finished off with some sweet country, bar room licks in hub of Bristol’s Country roots scene by Mark Legassick (Howlin Lord) and Country Dave Caven with the help of Stew Jackson (producer Massive Attack).
Just Another Girl has a down home Country vibe, coloured with a flavour of Jane’s childhood influences such as Young, Cohen and Baez. Telling tales of secrets, passion, longing, loss and redemption her songs and voice alike betray substance, thoughtfulness and vulnerability delivered with an authenticity that is captivating and memorable.
A couple of tracks off the album have already had some radio airplay in the USA as well as in the UK and Berlin.
Just Another Girl is due for release Sept 6 as a CD and a digital download.
