Jane Fallon is a performer whose smooth, rich voice and well-written songs get noticed. With vocals that have been called “angelic” and “mesmerizing” by Boston's Metronome magazine, her original songs “combine humor, intelligence, and deep musicality with an artfulness that is unusual.” (Wildy's World Music blog). Her CD “Gemini Rising”, co-produced with Jim Henry and Jeff Root was called by Rambles.net "a collection of songs that stitches itself together note by note and warms the soul." It has received considerable airplay.

Her newest release, Tangled in a Tree, charted at #4 on the Acoustic Roots Chart an debuted at #8 on Airplay Direct; it was nominated by Limelight Magazine as “Album of the Year” and is called “powerful, inspirational, and inspirational” by Cyrus Rhodes of Indie Magazine. Her writing came to the notice of well-known songwriting coach Jason Blume, who commented on both the quality of her songwriting and the beauty of her voice. Folksinger Joe Jencks of Brother Sun pronounced her “a true musician” with a style that crosses genres. Boston impresario, Tom Bianchi, called her “the real deal” and Michael Moran of the Amazing Things Arts Center commented, “she’s smart, she’s classy, she lights up the room.”

Jane recently won the Woody Guthrie Songwriting Competition. She also won the Will McLean Songwriting Competition and the New Jersey Folk Festival Songwriting Competition, and has been a finalist in several other songwriting competitions such as Vermont’s Solar Fest, the Susanne Millsaps Songwriting Competition, and the prestigious Rose Garden Coffeehouse Competition in Mansfield, MA. Her songs have placed in the Pennsylvania Heritage Songwriting Competition, the Neuse River MusicFest competition, and the Songwriters Association of Washington (SAW).

"One of the good artists in a sea of soulless clutter." Cyrus Rhodes, Indie Music.com
