Jane Willow is a Dutch folk musician who moved to Ireland at age twenty-one to pursue music. Her music is laced with Leonard Cohen and Nick Drake influences. She experiments with folk and country elements, whilst keeping her rich, soft and velvet-like voice at center stage.
In recent years Jane’s played an incredible amount of gigs, performing at Vicar Street, Whelan’s, Temple Bar Tradfest and Electric Picnic. She’s supported the likes of Glen Hansard, The Unthanks, Kíla, Nicki Bluhm and Mark Geary.
On her debut EP ‘Onward Still’ (Nov ‘18) she collaborated with musicians Dave Hingerty (drums: Kíla, Josh Ritter), Vyvienne Long (cello: Damien Rice). Her music has received radio play on RTE Radio 1, Radio Nova, BBC Radio Ulster and a favourable reception in the Irish media.
Her recent single ‘The Fool’ (May 31st) is a departure from her more mellow sound. On ‘The Fool’ she explores folk rock and country elements while her vocal delivery is strong, brazen and raw. Another single is due to be released during the fall.
