Jane McArthur
Singer, Writer, Guitar, Banjo, Percussion

Jane McArthur offers a raw, honest, musical experience. Jane is currently wooing Melbourne audiences with her solo shows, and is widely admired for her soulful vocals, poetic writing and bluesy undertones.  Also known in Tasmania as one of Hobart’s finest contemporary female singer songwriter exports, having started out as front-woman for Tasmanian blues/funk/soul/roots outfit Let The Cat Out.

Her most recent album Ephemeralogica, was borne of a project in 2015 whereby she recorded and released 1 song every month. Ephemeralogica was warmly received by national and community radio. She has recorded two albums of her own material with Let The Cat Out (‘Get It Like That’, 2008 and ‘Swimming Upstream’ 2012), and released her debut solo album – ‘Lemon Tree’ in 2012.  Produced by Luke Plumb (Shooglenifty, Funky String Band), this solo project explores acoustic folk, blues and soul. With each song treated as its own musical statement, the resulting album is a beautifully crafted collage of textural and lyrical ideas, with intimate vocals as a focal point in many of the songs. Think banjo, whiskey and summer afternoons in the backyard. The album consists of 10 songs, including one Tom Waits cover, and 9 of Jane’s songs both old and new, love songs, ballads and laments.

2018 promises to be an exciting year ahead, with new material, more band gigs, film clips, all kicking off with Woodford Folk Festival after christmas. Stay tuned to the website for updates and new songs!
