Mesa Jane / Bio

Singer-songwriter Mesa Jane made positive waves in the local music scene with the release of her first full-length album. The debut album, Spandex Heart, is a soulful and emotional expression of life, love, loss, and new beginnings. She was chosen to perform at a Philadelphia Folk Festival showcase and received bi-coastal radio play in 2013.

She followed up with the release of her sophomore album, Level, in November 2014, which has been described as St. Vincent meets St. Etienne or Alternative Vibe Pop. Prior to the release she commenced a nationwide record store tour. After the tour, Mesa was chosen to play the Mid Atlantic Music Festival in 2014. In 2015 she played at the Millennium Music Showcase, NoDa fest, Red Gorilla Fest and Love Fest during SXSW, Pancakes and Booze, Philadelphia, and Indie Week Canada. Level, produced by Tim Sonnefeld, has been charting on college and community stations across the country, and getting love on podcasts, streaming sites, and overseas.

Mesa Jane kicked off 2016 in the studio. She spent the first week of January recording new songs, which were inspired by the election year. The 4-song EP was released in August 2016 along with videos for each song. One of the songs was nominated for an Independent Music Award. You can find interviews and reviews regarding this EP online.
