Jane Willow Announces Next Single

Jane Willow will release her new folk-rock and country influenced single ‘The Fool’ on May 31st.

Jane is a Dutch folk musician who moved to Ireland at age twenty-one to pursue music. In recent years Jane’s played at Vicar Street, Whelan’s, Temple Bar Tradfest and Electric Picnic. She’s supported the likes of Glen Hansard, Mark Geary,  Kíla and The Unthanks.

On her debut EP ‘Onward Still’ (Nov 2018) she collaborated with musicians Dave Hingerty (drums: Kíla, Josh Ritter), Vyvienne Long (cello: Damien Rice). Her EP received radio play on RTE Radio 1, Radio Nova, BBC Radio Ulster and got a favourable reception in the Irish media.

Her new single ‘The Fool’ is a departure from her more mellow sound. On ‘The Fool’ she explores folk, folk rock and country elements while her vocal delivery is strong, brazen and raw.

Jane: “This song started as an homage to Dolly Parton’s ‘Jolene’, exploring country songwriting with a strong vocal in mind, but it quickly evolved. I never intended for it to be a real song, or for me to sing it. But something personal occurred to me and I connected with the song because of it. To me this song is about consent. I wanted to rid myself of the anger I felt. And I didn’t want to feel alone in this hurt. I feel very nervous releasing this song, or speaking about it.

But I know people like the song at live gigs, and it means something to me. And hopefully it will mean something to other people too.”

Upcoming Gigs:

The Unthanks (support): 29 May – 1 June
Claremorris Folk Festival: 20 July
Body & Soul, Arburtus Yarns Stage:: 28 July
