Formed in 2008, Toronto-based pop-rock quartet Jane’s Party – comprised of Devon Richardson, Tom Ionescu, Jeff Giles, and Zach Sutton – are fresh off Tunnel Visions, their third full-length album and most successful release to date. Lead single “Coming on Strong” garnered multiple accolades (including being named a top-100 single of 2016 by CBC), a number of the album’s other tracks appeared in film and TV, and, together with acoustic companion Tunnel reVisions (2017), the record has earned over three million streams on Spotify. Their recent self-produced release – acclaimed cover of July Talk’s “Guns + Ammunition” – saw the band in its most creative element, taking on the roles of director, producer and editor in creating the video for the song.
Jane’s Party has carried that momentum into their latest project, which represents a thematic and conceptual departure, if not necessarily an aesthetic one. Featuring collaborations with Skratch Bastid, Fast Romantics, and The Darcys, the new album sees the band exploring more mature and sometimes darker subject matter. Whether they’re touching on relationships, politics, the pervasiveness of technology, or the intractability of human nature, the songs often hide dystopian undertones beneath deceptively breezy riffs and vocal harmonies.
For over a decade, Jane’s party has brought their irreverent, genre-bending sound to live audiences around the world; in buzzing clubs and famed concert halls in downtown Toronto, in stadiums across Canada, and in historic venues throughout Europe, opening for and playing alongside artists like Lowest of The Low, The Sadies, Sam Roberts Band, The Arkells, Tom Odell, Blue Rodeo, Stars, LIGHTS, and Lord Huron. As they gear up to play festivals like Alianait Art (Iqaluit), Liquid Arts (Hamilton), Northern Lights Boreal (Sudbury), and The Beaches International Jazz Festival (Toronto), with a cross-Canada tour to follow, 2018 will see them continue to expand their reach, as they showcase their new collection of material with the soulful, energetic live shows that have become their hallmark.
