Janie Dare / Bio

I've been told there are influences from electronica thru guitar based blues and rock thru indie, like Pixies, P.J. Harvey, Lana Del Ray, Portishead, Jonie Mitchell.
The following has also been said: "if the Dictators ever met Talking Heads (on a dark night) this might be the baby!"
I don't know that I agree with the above but whatever, mainly I play what I need to hear.
I listen to it and I hear it differently, but happily and most of all I think it's a sound in itself and I hope you very much enjoy hearing it.

The musix I love are: David Bowie, Gentle Giant, Pere Ubu, The Beat, Selecter, Jeff Buckley, Can, This Heat, Ry Cooder, Talkingheads, Ottorino Respighi, Niccolò Paganini, Jo Hutton (Maesh, Mesh), Elmer Bernstein, Ella FitzGerald, Louis Armstrong, Aretha Franklin, Tricky, Parliament, Captain Beefheart, Gorillaz, Elvis, Peter Gabriel, Arthur Brown, Randy Crawford, Gail Ann Dorsey, The Doors, Steely Dan, Robert Wyatt, Stray Cats (all and everything Brian Setzer), Anita Baker, Bob Seger, Senser, Glaxo Babies, Ertha Kitt, the lady Billie Holiday.
This list could go on for a very long time....

I am a solo artist andI play the guitar, bass, set the drums and performed the vocals on all the tracks I've posted here.

'Snow Globe' (shake up the world) was featured on the radio shows of DJ Mel Thiel with co-host Richard Oberuc on WNTI, 91.9 FM (New Jersey, USA). Some of the other tracks have been featured on the radio show of DJ Barry Gribble at The Source FM 96.1 (Falmouth, UK).

May the road rise with you!
