JANE ALLISON-Just Another Girl

ja2The first thought I had about Jane Allison‘s ‘Just Another Girl‘, was how could a Welsh girl living in Bristol, England release an album of American roots music? Well, she did. Set for release in September 2014, this 10 track album nails it.

Hymn To Hope” opens the album with a great melody, beautiful harmonies, and I dig the brushes on the drums. A blend of Americana and an Irish folk song,”Faded Moon” has great harmonies, and a sweet melody, and a dynamite bass drum. The way cool guitar licks on “Country Lovin” are only over shadowed by the amazing vocal track. “Just Another Girl” offers acoustic guitar, and some sweet banjo, while “Catch Me” delivers Americana with a layer of surf guitar. The piano on “Joan Of ja3Arc” blends perfectly with the great harmonies. “Real Life“, a rockier song, has wonderful changes, a cool hook, and a terrific guitar solo with cool effects. There are wonderful changes, nice harmonies and a great guitar riff on “Wait For Me“. The final track on the album, “Farewell My Boy“, has a beautifully haunting melody, which supports the vocal and piano only instrumentation.  My favorite track, “All Over Now“, has a wonderful melody, floating over terrific organ and piano.

 

 

 

ja1‘Just Another Girl’ is a well written, wonderfully executed album. The songs paint exceptional images, weaving emotions throughout. Definitely one to check out. You can have a listen to the album  and purchase a copy for yourself, your friends, and your family, on Bandcamp.  A wonderful listen, demonstrating that Jane Allison is not just another girl.
