The Jane Brooks Project


Up until the most recent decades, female songwriters were much like females of any other profession; either nonexistent or relegated to the ranks of eternal subordination. One such female was a woman by the name of Jane Brooks, born in Somerset, England in 1922 and raised in a war-ridden America. The young Ms.Brooks was a songsmith of unparalleled eloquence, wit, and style, though it is questionable whether her songs were ever performed outside of the parlors and intimate lounges of the 1940s and early 50s.

Up until the most recent decades, female songwriters were much like females of any other profession; either nonexistent or relegated to the ranks of eternal subordination. One such female was a woman by the name of Jane Brooks, born in Somerset, England in 1922 and raised in a war-ridden America. The young Ms.Brooks was a songsmith of unparalleled eloquence, wit, and style, though it is questionable whether her songs were ever performed outside of the parlors and intimate lounges of the 1940s and early 50s. In any case, they were certainly never recorded. But all of that changed when, in early 2003, a group of young American musicians went on an excursion to a local antique shop.

They stumbled upon a dog-eared volume containing hundreds of pages of decomposing sheet music, accompanied by several black and white photographs of a striking young woman. Intrigued, research commenced, the woman's identity revealed, her authorship of the songs confirmed, and the sheet music restored to legible condition. The Jane Brooks Project was born. It is felt that the songs of Jane Brooks could have ranked among the standards of the day had they only enjoyed the same attention given to Jane's male contemporaries. The Jane Brooks project has made it their mission to give Ms.Brooks her rightful place in history.

To this end, they are currently in the studio recording the first of several Jane Brooks albums, appropriately entitled, "The Jane Brooks Songbook, Volume I." *special note: The above story is a fairy tale, for your entertainment and ours, but the fact of the matter is, the Jane Brooks songs are written entirely by Emilie Autumn, while channeling the musical styles of the 40s. "Jane Brooks" is one of EA's many alter-egos. From www.batteredrose.com Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
