Fethard, County Tipperary
WAYWARD JANE was first recorded in London in 1993 which led to an imminent record contract with MUTE Records however, a near fatal car crash left its singer with multiple injuries and registered disabled for years...I'm Roger Mehta, a veteran DJ, radio broadcaster (Centre Radio, Tipp FM), singer / song writer (Dodgy, Damien Rice) from Fethard Co. Tipperary.
I started singing at 8, DJing & rapping at 16, radio broadcasting at 19 & writing and playing music in London in the 1990's at 20. I've been out of playing music for a long time now due to poor health. I'm now a pre-accredited counsellor & psychotherapist. Maybe I can get another crack at fully realising the musical bea(s)t within me.
Chris Bayne is software developer, musician & producer from Oxford UK . He was my best mate in London during the 90's and still is all these years later! A musician for as long as me, he is an authority on the music recordings of The Beatles and fronts the hugely successful (and respected) OXFORD BEATLES in the UK. An extraordinarily gifted multi-instrumentalist, he's also a bit of a tech genius in the studio. The Chewbacca of the team if you like!
In the 90's, we were regular Saturday night heartbreakers at the legendary North London Club, The Mean Fiddler. In our song, our lonely hero jumps off the club's balcony and into the arms of the wild & spirited 'Wayward Jane'. N.B. No hearts were harmed, or broken, in the making of this song.
WAYWARD JANE was re-recorded over the web between Tipperary and Oxford during the lockdown summer of 2020. We hope you like it? We sure do!...x
