Jane. Sounds like a Rupaul tour of the Vatican.
Or maybe the female counterpart of David Koresh.
Pope Jane is the western United States' ONLY
all original band that plays four hour showcases.
No one is sure why.
you have recently wrapped up a roadtrip through
New York, Texas, Alabama, Iowa, Washington,
or the Dakotas, just to name a few, you may
have picked up Pope Jane on the college FM dials.
Not to mention the thirteen other states where
Pope Jane occupies the airwaves. Pope Jane's
debut 10-song tape, released last October, threaded
its way through the Western U.S. like a spreading
Tom Robbins book.
Jane's universally understandable sound still
remains unique enough to give birth to its won
cult following. Their following, demographically,
is as varied as your grandmother's wildflower
garden. People who crave the groove that makes
your soul swim make the mecca to Pope Jane.
People who want vocal butter to spread smoothly
over their heartburn enjoy Pope Jane, while
pensively stirring their Long Island iced teas.
All the people looking for raw, all the people
looking for layered lyrics, the good-timers,
the reflectors, the feelers, the dancers, the
watchers... all of them find a common musical
solace in the tonal language of Pope Jane.
is fascinating about this is that in the very
face of accessibility, there are those that
still find tiny cracks in the skin of Pope Jane
to settle into. It's as if they knew some deep
secret about the souls of the woman in the band.
If you haven't had the chance to taste Pope
Jane, you can catch them at Casey's Golden Pheasant
in Downtown Billings on the 12th and 13th of
July. Be there or be bored.
