The Jane Bond Band

Artist / Band / Musician
Americana / Country / Blues
Although she hails from Lexington, MA, Jane Bond has become one of the premier artists in Austin, TX. While Jane is rooted in Country-Blues, she is by no means old fashioned. Her music is seasoned with Jazz and Rock & Roll, complimented by her flirtatious but authentic stage presence. Jane brings this package together to create an original and captivating performance.

After moving from Boston to Austin, Jane recorded her first album, Jane Bond Volume I in 2001. In August 2002, Jane was on the cover of the Austin Chronicle representing one of Austin's hot new acts. Jane has worked with Wayne Nagel and Cory L. Moore, at the Luther Wolf Agency. Together, they released her second album, Jane Bond Volume II: Live from the Continental Club, under Luther Records in March 2004. Since then, Jane has been touring Texas performing with bands such as Reckless Kelly, Ray Benson, the Gourds, and Radney Foster.

Jane Bond is the quintessential representation of the music scene in Austin. She has played in many of Austin's prestigious nightclubs, including Antone's, Hole in the Wall, and a twenty-month residency at the Continental Club. Jane has performed at the South by Southwest Music Festival and at the Austin City Limits festival in 2002 and 2003 with artists such as R.E.M., Dwight Yoakam, Shawn Colvin, and Liz Phair.

Reflecting on the 2003 Austin City Limits festival, Kevin Renick, from Playback St. Louis, paints a realistic picture of Jane's performance. "Bond would close her eyes and sing sweetly into the mic, modulating her delivery with relaxed ease, then look out at the audience with a beaming smile that was positively irresistible." Jane Bond has certainly made her mark in Austin, and she is ready for more.

Jane's music career is caked full of experience and progress. In preparation for her third album, Jane took a trip to Los Angeles, CA, where she recorded five songs with producer/ drummer, Tony Braunagel (late of Bonnie Raitt/Taj Mahal), bassist Hutch Hutchinson, keyboardist Benmont Tench, and guitarist Johnny Lee Shell.

After a couple of years in a duo, Jane has a new lease on life and is more excited than ever to record new songs and to play live. She has a new band including, but not limited to, Matt Giles (Toni Price), Cornbread Rob (Billy Jo Shaver, Chuck Prophet) and Vicente Rodriguez (Sister Morales) and hopes to release a new album later in 2009.
