SXSW 2016 Interview: Jane Weaver

By on Tuesday, 29th March 2016 at 11:00 am
 

Oh, the kinds of stories Northern singer/songwriter Jane Weaver could tell. Having been in the music business for over 2 decades, Weaver has been in bands and has continued to record and perform as a solo artist. The ever busy Weaver also owns her own record label Bird, which focuses on the release of underground Northern female artists. In 2014 she released her sixth album ‘The Silver Globe’, which continues her work in electronic music. This is after her having done pop, folktronica and psych rock in her previous guises. In this conversation outside the British Music Embassy at Latitude 30 after her appearance there Wednesday afternoon, I ask the legendary Jane how she thinks things have changed in the industry over the years as she’s been a part of it. Have a listen to our conversation below.

For a taste of ‘The Silver Globe’, have a watch and listen below to ‘I Need a Connection’, one of the album’s exemplary tracks. For more on Jane and the other female acts who showcased at SXSW 2016, go here.
