Liz Janes


Liz Janes grew up in a Virginia suburb of Washington D.C., listened religiously to Casey Casem's Top 40 on the radio Sunday after church, then spent her formative high school years sneaking into Philadelphia jazz clubs. She came of age musically in Olympia, Washington, as a horn-squanking member of the Northwest punk-improv scene, but sang only for herself, recording her own songs on lo-fi cassette tapes.

Liz Janes grew up in a Virginia suburb of Washington D.C., listened religiously to Casey Casem's Top 40 on the radio Sunday after church, then spent her formative high school years sneaking into Philadelphia jazz clubs. She came of age musically in Olympia, Washington, as a horn-squanking member of the Northwest punk-improv scene, but sang only for herself, recording her own songs on lo-fi cassette tapes. Those secret lullabies and gospel tunes remained unheard until, without her permission, Liz's future husband played them for the acclaimed singer-songwriter-producer Sufjan Stevens (Michigan, Seven Swans). Several months later, a full-length album emerged, produced and arranged by Stevens for his Asthmatic Kitty label.

Done Gone Fire, Liz Janes debut album, paired her smoky, mellifluous voice with Stevens' distinctive production, arrangements and accompaniment, drawing on blues, gospel, country, jazz and avant-garde influences. Liz Janes was nominated for San Diego Music Awards as Best New Artist in 2004, and was invited and performed as a featured artist at both Ladyfest 2003 in Austin, TX and the 2002 and 2003 San Diego SheCollective Festivals. Liz has worked with a variety of artists/bands including The Blackheart Procession, Bedroom Walls, Howard Hello, Soul-Junk, and members of the Danielson Famile and Old Time Relijun.
