Jane Walker’s next album will be produced and co-written with leading UK producer/writer/programmer James Sanger whose client list includes Keane, Dido, U2 and Brian Eno.
Meeting Sanger and visiting his studio in France last September, the two hit it off immediately and Walker returned to Sydney with a commitment from him to produce her album, as well as a swag of tracks to begin writing to.
Walker has launched a Pozible crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to enable her to immerse herself in writing the next album in collaboration with Sanger. http://www.pozible.com/janewalker
She released her first album Walk Gently in Australia two years ago on the independent Australian record label GoSet. The album has been drawing acclaim for its intimate and uplifting chillout pop style. Her song and video of Ancient Land (feat. Predator from Street Warriors) is receiving airplay on national TV and at radio stations both locally and overseas. Check out the video here.
A percentage of proceeds from Jane Walker’s song Walk Gently on the Earth goes to Ocean Recovery Alliance, which is dedicated to cleaning up the world’s waterways. The Walk Gently on the Earth video was screened at the Hong-Kong San Francisco International Ocean Film Festival in April and the song is currently receiving radio airplay.
Walker’s support of environmental and humanitarian causes will continue with the new album so any support via the Pozible campaign will help make this happen.
Her current album Walk Gently is available on iTunes and janewalker.com.au. All enquiries to Lorda Omeissah m: 0413 044 332 e: email@example.com
