With an authentic sound borne out of the legacy of rock and roll, the sibling-comprised Jane Doe is not your average band. Jane Doe is the square peg in the round hole, reflecting a wave of individuals who identify with the past while shaping the future. Fronted by the defiant and compassionate Izzy Kay who sings, screams, messages and connects with a multi-generational audience, Jane Doe continues to defy all odds with a mission and music not seen nor heard in decades.
The PNW based Jane Doe initially launched along with their debut album, Identified, in late January 2019. Identified was mastered by the legendary Howie Weinberg. The band currently headlines throughout the Pacific Northwest, West Coast and Southwest United States. Jane Doe recently sold out their California premiere at the one and only Sayers Club in the heart of Hollywood.
Where are you based?
The Pacific Northwest
How long have you been making music?
We’ve been together for about 3 years.
What genre would you consider your music to be?
Rock through and through
What inspired you to pursue a career in music?
There’s no specific muse that we can contribute our inspiration to. However, we are inspired by so many artists that came before us and are driven to keep the heart of rock and roll alive and thriving.
What are your biggest musical influences?
There are too many to note. But if we had to pinpoint a specific era it would be Grunge and the music that evolved out of the Pacific Northwest between ’85 and ’94.
Are you signed to a label or are you an independent artist?
We are an independent artist.
What have been the biggest challenges in your music career?
The last year and a half – this thing called “Covid”.
How many songs or albums have you released to date?
We’ve released one full length album (11 songs) and one additional single.
Can you tell us a few things about your latest release?
Our latest release will be two singles off the upcoming album, this September and October. We think the content of the songs is very important and timely as well as the fact that we are proud of the growth of the band. Our sound has really evolved and we can’t wait to share it with people.
Any plans for new music or upcoming projects we should know about?
Yes, many. We have a new short film in the works. We are currently involved in an awareness campaign with Hair We Share – the New York based charitable organization that donates hand-created natural hair wigs to those suffering hair loss due to severe medical conditions, like cancer and or burn victims. “Scar Territory” is not your traditional music video, and instead a powerful visual message using pictorials and whose subject matter is extremely important and timely, not to mention of significant meaning to both the foundation and us. The film’s stills will be portraits made up from a combination of selfies and professionally shot photos of women survivors. Survivors who have suffered from abuse, homelessness, cancer, or other medical health issues; be it physical, mental, circumstantial, or otherwise. In support of this project, 100% of all revenue generated from the film will be donated to Hair We Share and other foundations that have a long history of supporting women, nurturing their physical, mental health and well-being and those entities whose focus is helping women regain their dignity potentially lost due to their circumstances.
