Jane O'Brien Jane O'Brien is an Irish singer songwriter based at the moment in Germany. A dynamic singer with a searingly rich voice, she presents her own brand of gutsy songs. She is backed by three top class musicians, D÷rte Schnler on drums, Carsten K÷rtling on bass and Andreas Gnnther on keyboards, together they have developed their own original sound - a spicy mix of jazz and pop, with chilled out beats and Irish roots, tempered with passion and a wry look at where we are at today. Her songs are a snapshot album of her experiences and observations. Songs such as "Strawberry SoufflT", a steamy elegy to daytime sex or 'Peacetime' inspired by a newspaper photo, reveal the raw honesty which is typical of her lyrics. With such diverse influences as Planxty, The Police and Ella Fitzgerald her roots are firmly in jazz, folk and pop, but she will delve into other styles to suit a song, such as the drum+bass inspired "Blooming". On stage she is anything but shy and retiring. She combines her powerful and velvety voice with her original style of song writing to reach inside and touch an emotional nerve. With her feisty humour and raw emotion she has gathered a steadily growing fan base in Germany. Jane will do her first Irish tour in July of this year to bring her music back home at a sellection of intimate venues around. Biography Jane O'Brien was born in Dublin. In 1988 she moved to Spain. Her first professional band was in Barcelona, the a-capella group "Stupendams". Here, seven women, a mixture of Spanish, British and Irish, performed a wide range of music, from pop to madrigals to swing, at concerts all around Spain. In 1990 she moved to Hamburg, Germany. As a solo jazz singer in the legendary Dennis Swing Club in Hamburg she began to make contacts in the music scene while singing with most of the well known jazz musicians in the city. On one evening she was accompanied by three double bass players at the same time including Percy Heath from the visiting Modern Jazz Quartet In 1993 she formed the pop duo "A Distant Touch" with the Hungarian guitarist Ferenc Kiss. Together they wrote a set of funk pop songs one of which was "Whales kiss", which was written for the Greenpeace anti-whaling campaign. In 1995 with four German/"Irish" traditional musicians she founded the band "Boreen". Until the end of 2001 they wowed audiences big and small all over Germany with a traditional blend of fast tunes, slow airs and songs about lovers who returned too late and husbands who returned too early. In 1997 they produced the CD "Enchanted Ways". In 1995 Jane formed the trip-hop project "S.T.A.R." with Uwe Haas. Along with singing, O'Brien wrote the lyrics and melodies and in 1996 the CD "Simply Travelling Around Reality" was released under the PIAS label with distribution by Rough Trade. Since 1998 she has had her own band in various formations and has played at a wide variety of venues all around Germany; clubs, art's centres and festivals, and has never failed to grab attention, stop people from sitting still and leave audiences wanting much more. In 2002 Jane's son was born. After a three year break she is back with an exciting new sound and ready to bring it all back home. In 2006 she will tour Germany and Ireland and will release her new CD. Concert reviews translated from German Picturesque undertones Enchanting: Jane O'Brien and Band in Lutterbeker It is the contradictions which make life what it is. Many of us would like to block out the fact that tragedy and humour, beauty and pain, joy and fear lie side by side but Jane O'Brien is fascinated by exactly these contrasts. On stage the singer and songwriter from Dublin does not present kitsch folk, instead, in the company of her band, she spins a magical web of plaintive pop and lyrical jazz combined with free improvisation. With a key change here and a shift in rhythm there, Jane, with her crystal clear voice, creates a taut atmosphere in which to tell her stories. The small woman with the cute side curls can certainly hammer out a note. She brings melancholy, dreamy romanticism t
