Mesa Jane / Bio

Shortly after the release of "Spandex Heart" in late 2012, Mesa was chosen for a Philadelphia Folk Festival showcase, and received bi-coastal radio play. She was also a featured artist on Reverbnation and her CD received positive reviews locally and nationally.
"Level" is the newest album from Pennsylvania based alternative musician Mesa Jane, a wonderfully woven mesh of 80s synths and live instruments, it brings both upbeat feel-good tracks and darker, insightful songs. Mesa Jane’s sound on this one is being described as St. Etienne meets St. Vincent, and also has some elements of synthesizer heavy alt-rock reminiscent of the Pixies, the Vaselines and Sonic Youth.
The first single, "Haunt You" was released in June 2014 and has been charting on college radio nationwide. It was also licensed for use in the new app Shimmeo. Mesa commenced a nationwide record store tour in the month of August and commemorated the release with Mesajawn, her record release fundraiser to benefit the American Cancer Society on November 15, 2014. In addition to recent airplay on her hometown favorite WXPN 88.5 and interviews on KMUZ 88.5 Salem, OR, and 90.3 WESS, Mesa Jane just released a blog about the "For The Love Of It Record Store Tour", is working on a video for "Haunt You", and will be playing at SXSW in 2015.
