About Jane Walker

Australian singer-songwriter Jane Walker’s album ‘Walk Gently’ offers an intimate and uplifting cocktail of chill-out pop. ‘With warm delicate grooves, Jane’s songs speak in the hidden language of the soul – definitely one not to miss!’ (Claire Scobie, Daily Telegraph UK.)

Jane’s album ‘Walk Gently’ has been recorded in two sessions – four songs with UK producer/mixer Steve James at Rocking Horse Studios in Byron Bay, and eight songs with NZ producer Barbara Griffin (co-produced by Jane) at Billy Field’s Paradise Studios on the NSW Central Coast and in various studios in Sydney, London and New York, mixed by David Hemming. The album was mastered at Sterling Sound, NY.

The recordings feature contributions from Street Warriors (Aboriginal hip hop), Adam Levy (Norah Jones), Chris Difford (UK Squeeze), Steve Hillier (Dubstar), Peter Lazonby (UK DJ/artist), Bobby Flynn, Billy Field, Warwick Scott (Skunkhour), James Cruickshank (The Cruel Sea), drummer Hamish Stuart, bass player James Haselwood, percussionist Jess Ciampa, Tania Bowra and other talented musicians.

The single ‘Do it With Love’ was released to Australian radio and iTunes in 2011 and one of the top ten hit-picks for The Music Network magazine. All proceeds from sales on Valentine’s Day were donated to the Qld Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal.

Another song from the album, ‘All Acts of Love’ was released on Universal Music compilation Groove Operator in Poland in 2011.

The anthemic song, ‘Walk Gently on the Earth’ is a call to care for the environment and ourselves and is being used by Ocean Recovery Alliance in promotional videos. Ten percent of sales of this song is donated to this non profit organisation which focuses on improving the ocean environment and is doing great work – particularly helping find solutions for the plastic pollution in our oceans, rivers and waterways. The song recording features the wonderful Stu Hunter on wurlitzer, percussion by Jess Ciampa and Sanskrit chanting by Dwaipayana, Sarah Sweeting, Ivan Brownrigg, Gretel Packer, Claire Scobie and Melissa Halliday.

Jane introduced audiences to her new material when she performed her song ‘Ancient Land’ with Aboriginal rappers, Street Warriors at the Dreaming Festival then before international media at World Youth Day. NSW Reconciliation Ambassador, Aden Ridgeway describes ‘Ancient Land’ as a timely celebration of Australian identity and a call to unity. “‘Ancient Land’ gives a gentle power to a message whose time has finally come”. ‘Ancient Land’ is now on iTunes and is included on the album ‘Walk Gently’.

Trained in classical and jazz disciplines including studies at the NSW Conservatorium of Music, Jane sang for two years with Sydney’s a cappella outfit The Café of the Gates of Salvation. She later travelled to Africa and made her first recordings with the legendary Thomas Mapfumo’s band, The Blacks Unlimited, in Zimbabwe.

 .

While writing and performing in London, her song ‘Threadneedle Street’, produced by DJ-composer Pete Lazonby in the UK, was featured alongside Massive Attack and Radiohead on the album Foundations: Coming up from the Streets. This recording of ‘Threadneedle Street’ is included on the album ‘Walk Gently’.

“Immediately it was clear how Jane had refined her songwriting craft… presenting a focused, powerful and uplifting presence on stage. With warm, delicate grooves and heart-felt lyrics Jane slips effortlessly across influences of jazz, electronica and classical to create a pop style all her own. Her songs speak in the hidden language of the soul – definitely one not to miss.” – Claire Scobie, The Daily Telegraph, UK.

Jane performs with a band, and has enjoyed doing shows with Holly Throsby, Bertie Blackman, Karl Broadie, Street Warriors, Tania Bowra, Liz Martin, Dolly Rocker Movement, Dan Hopkins, David Lane and others.
