SOUNDCHECK featuring JANE ALLISON
Live at The Old Fire Station, Frome
Saturday 5th June 2021
Broadcast Sat 19th June 2021
A ‘stripped back’ online performance.
Award-winning musician, actor, writer and songwriter Jane Allison has released her much- anticipated third album ‘Like Magdalene’ in collaboration with musician and producer Alonza Bevan (Kula Shaker).
Harking back to the halcyon days of the late 60s, but with a modern twist, ‘Like Magdalene’ crosses boundaries of electric folk, pop, country and Americana to create something that is as unique as it is spellbinding.
Created in Berlin, recorded and produced in the Tea Rooms Studio in the heart of the Ardennes, ‘Like Magdalene’ is a striking piece of work, rich with layers and textures with the subtle silken threads of influences such as Leonard Cohen, Indigo Girls woven through.
“Shower of Stars is what I imagine Jefferson Airplane would have sounded like if they had been from this side of the water and had favoured red wine over psychotropic drugs.” – Dave Franklin, Dancing About Architecture.
“Gorgeous sonic blends of 70’s English folk revival, lush Laurel Canyon haze, rustic, acoustic charm and Celtic cool.”
As an actress Jane is best known for her comedy character roles, the most recent being GCHQ’s cryptanalyst Mary Needham in the TV comedy ‘Intelligence’ written by Nick Mohammed & starring David Schwimmer. Season 2 of Intelligence will be aired on Sky TV on June 8th and Peacock TV on June 17th.
