Jane

Jane Laws is a singer-songwriter who specialises in building images of characters interacting with each other. The songs take on the personality of the characters portrayed, and one can feel the thoughts and emotions of each personality. Musically the songs take on a soft, intimate folk-ballad style, interspersed with some more up-tempo songs.
