Jane Ellen Bryant

#sxsw #JaneEllenBryant


It will not be long before audiences everywhere will be captivated by the distinctive, yet classic sound of Jane Ellen Bryant. Her music reflects the unique feel of her hometown, Austin, TX, but exhibits a delicate twist of its own. Growing up, Jane’s musical influences were varied. She was enthralled with ACDC’s Back in Black album, but also loved the haunting, lyrical style of Joan Baez. She describes her music as fitting somewhere in between. Jane studies vocal performance and music business at Belmont University in Nashville, TN, and spends her time traveling back and forth between these two music cities. Those who have heard her perform are amazed that such a powerful voice comes from such a small frame. Her songs have an innate ability to soothe, resonate, and speak truth to all ages. Her lyrics are a product of her passion, her understanding, her travels and the conflicts we all face in life and love. Jane’s songs sometimes ask questions that she and other people do not always want to ask themselves. Her songs will leave you thinking, happily humming along, and wishing for more. She just released her first single “Smoke on the Fire” on iTunes, and you can expect to hear her first full album soon.
