From Jane ~
"A mother''s lullaby...the passion for your lover...sweetness of a dream realized...the anguish of loss...love of homeland...gratitude and protection for Mother Earth ~ These loves and passions, in any language, come from the depths of the human soul. The Spirit of a people is carried through their language, their music. And so it has been, as I have explored with reverence, that the music of different countries/cultures, has taken me into the sanctuary of my own body, mind and spirit in ways unique and sacred to each one, bringing deep medicine enriching my life, my home, my family. Some have yet to be experienced. This concert is an offering of gratitude for these gifts."
Jane Bakken ~ Musician/Artisan
Pounding on a cardboard keyboard, at age 6, at the dining room table for more than a year (until the family could afford an upright) was probably the first sign that music for Jane was going to be right up there with breathing.
Jane is known as one of the Northwest’s finest artisans ~ singer, pianist, recording artist, songwriter, and self-taught painter. In her teenage years, Jane was accompanying choirs and national soloists for schools, churches and a wide variety of community functions. For the past two decades, she sang and played in many of Seattle/Bellevue’s finest hotels/restaurants, as well as acting/singing/co-directing in several community theater events. Jane recorded her first CD, “I Send You Love”, a Christmas album including six original compositions in 1999. Singing in the Total Experience Gospel Choir for two years was definitely one of her highlights. Jane has performed concerts in other states, and has also sung in other countries.
Since 1984, Jane has also developed a reputation as one of the finest commercial artisans in this area with faux painting, murals, and venetian plaster. A featured artisan in Seattle’s “Street of Dreams” in 1999 and 2001, Jane was also asked to work on a villa in France, and commissioned for commercial work in other states.
This new Concert Series ~ “Love and Passion ~ Music of the Soul…In Any Language” is an ideal vehicle where Jane combines her trio of soulful artistry in singing, acoustic piano and painting in a way that will thrill audiences everywhere.
Jane Bakken resides with her husband of 25 years in the green hills of Washington State, with their son, in the first strawbale home in King County. She has also been a successful entrepreneur and business developer for more than 30 years, and continues to participate in interfaith and intercultural projects, as well as several business communities with her husband.
