“Opening cut of this 7 track EP `Fallen So Far`, is a great introduction to January Jane with an awesome vocal delivery from Via out front totally controlling the track. ...this is the start of something good!”
“It’s hard to imagine a UK talent show throwing up a contestant who goes on to form a modern hard rock band, but that’s exactly what ex- American Idol contestant Pat Via has done and this seven track EP is a good stab at modern rock. Crunchy guitars vie with hooks that have a pop sensibility. Heavier moments on “Fallen So Far” and “The Unknown” have a restless energy and the choruses have one eye on rock radio. “Champagne Suicide” sounds a little like the underrated Swedes Angeline, while on the title track they could be Def Leppard in black eye-liner and an Anime haircut. Via has a good voice and the metal/pop mix could find a sizeable youth audience if they can maintain the level of the likes of “Fallen So Far”.”
“I'm really excited about January Jane, they have delivered a strong debut that holds up all the way through... it sounds creative and full of energy and passion, a good quality release and quite possibly one of the best new bands of 2012, can't wait for the full album.”
“With songs of the quality of ‘Champagne Suicide’ and the ballad-like title track ‘No More Last Times’ it looks like they will have a bright future ahead of them. Talking of looks, the band members all look like they could be on the books of a modelling agency which I am sure will do them no harm whatsoever. The band have a new album about to be released and if they can maintain the songwriting quality contained on the EP then it should be well worth tracking down.”

"Erupting on the scene just a few months ago, January Jane already has a kick-ass EP and a legion of loyal, young fans. Their sound brings with it a full range of material, from seductive ballads to monster metal. You heard it here first... January Jane is on the express track straight to the top."
