Jane''s musical journey began as a child growing up in Montgomery, Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati. Her parents had Jane and her brothers playing piano from an early age. Jane says, "We were like the Von Trapp Family. We spent our nights around the recorder putting on performances of singing and playing the piano. We would each get our turn, but I was always stealing the microphone from my brothers. I''ve always loved to sing."
While growing up, Jane performed in musicals around Cincinnati, studied dance, and sang commericals. She won all kind of regional talent contests for her singing. She did many commercials for Kenner Toys. She was the voice of such products as Play-Doh and Sit-n-Spin. "I can remember watching the Strawberry Shortcake specials because they were always sponsored by Kenner and hearing myself on the commercials - I was like 9 years old, it was so cool". By the time she was 12, she was singing in musical revues all over town.
In high school, Jane was writing songs and lead singer for two bands, Avatar (with Jesse Gilsinger) and Frame of Mind." I loved to sing songs by the band Heart. My signature song was ''Barracuda''". At this time she was also deeply involved in art. Painting, drawing, photography - she enjoyed it all. She went on to study Fashion Design and Communications at the University of Cincinnati.
After college she started to sing again. She started collaborating with a producer in Cincinnati named John Henry. She had actually done commercials for him when she was a little girl. They recorded many demos and searched for a record deal. John eventually was appointed composer to NBC''s Passions. He suggested they pen a theme song. That theme song, Breathe, was not only chosen, but also nominated for an Emmy for Best Original Song. This led Jane to the attention of NBC Enterprises. They were forming NBC Records and signed her as their first artist. NBC and Jane went on to film a video for the song and release it as a single because of fans'' demands. Jane was also asked to sing on the NBC Celebrity Christmas CD which benefited the Children''s Miracle Network. "I worked with so many incredible musicians on that CD. The pianist was the piano player for Chicago, the guitarist from Rick Springfield, it was incredible. "
When asked about her influences she immediately says, "I guess any song or singer I''ve ever liked. I grew up hearing alot of my brothers'' Beatles albums, my parents liked John Denver and classical music and I had a big obsession with Madonna in High School. So there was a wide array of styles I listened to growing up. I am attracted to any song with a melody that moves me. I am a big melody person. Melodies can bring out every emotion in me".
Jane is now set to release her debut full-length album entitled "Euphoria". "This album is a dream come true for me. I''ve really grown in the last two years as a writer and a person - I''ve really come into my own, and this album is reflective of that".
