Jane Kramer 'Break & Bloom' - Self Release

The debut release from Portland Oregon resident and American Folk artist. The eleven songs featured here are very impressive and point to the emergence of a serious talent. Previously a member of bands like The Barrel House Mamas and Firefly Revival, this voyage towards a solo career is well made and perfectly timed to benefit from her experience and maturity. She has a wonderfully expressive vocal and the insights of a life lived and reflections of lessons learned are perfectly captured in songs like Nobody’s Woman Tonight, Hold My Whiskey, One Precious Life, That Muddy Water and the album closer, the traditional song, How Far Am I From Canaan.
