Jane Leo

Sharpening the teeth of their new project over the past year and a half, Jane Ellen Bryant and Daniel Leopold have cut through the noise and made some of their own – with steady single releases, regional touring supporting Cannons, Unlikely Candidates and Misterwives; and now the latest exciting news that Jane Leo have signed with MARS Label Group to release their self-titled debut album on February 17th, 2023.

Writing together over the past couple years, Jane Leo evolved their relationship into a musical collaboration, progressing into a literal merge of their monikers to create their nom de plume. Blending touches of Blondie, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Angel Olsen with an edge of Jeff Buckley, The Kills or St. Vincent, the project juxtaposes lilting melodies with rock machismo and lush, cinematic Hollywood production alongside modern indie and synthpop sensibilities for a pristine effect. Compounding onto their respective solo ventures, the duo prove equally apt as acoustic balladeers and alternative rockers - intertwining electricity and lust, 808 heartbeats and sweating velvet rhythms, symmetrical guitars rhyming in passionate chant.
