Jane Willow is a Dutch folk musician who moved to Ireland at age twenty-one to pursue music. Her music is laced with Leonard Cohen and Nick Drake influences. She experiments with folk and country elements, whilst keeping her rich, soft and velvet-like voice at center stage.

In recent years Jane’s played an incredible amount of gigs, performing at Vicar Street, Whelan’s, Temple Bar Tradfest and Electric Picnic. She’s supported the likes of Glen Hansard, The Unthanks, Kíla, David Kitt and Mark Geary.

On her debut EP ‘Onward Still’ (Nov ‘18) she collaborated with musicians Dave Hingerty (drums: Kíla, Josh Ritter), Vyvienne Long (cello: Damien Rice). Her music has received radio play on RTE Radio 1, Radio Nova, BBC Radio Ulster and a favourable reception in the Irish media.

Her single ‘The Fool’ reached the finals of Radio Nova Discovered with radio DJ Colm Hayes picking it as his favourite song. Her next single ‘Rise Above It All’ is due for release on Sept 13th. A headline show will take place in Whelan’s on Friday Sept 27th.

“Onward Still’ is a precious collection of tracks that flow on sweet luscious melodies, pristine musicianship and a purity that is mesmerising.” - Indie Buddie

“It comes from a genuine place, this is about the music, … and it takes a gifted song-writer to let their craft alone carry their message in such a wonderfully enjoyable way.” - REMY

“From the first caress of vocals in “Onward Still”, to the last defining, harmonic moments of “Comfort”, this 6-track EP is nothing if not the perfectly watercolored canvas to hang over your blooming ideas … for 2019.” - Imperfect Fifth
