Jane Weaver continues to enrapture and expand her legacy into 2024 with a freshly announced tour, including a show at Òran Mór Glasgow… and more new music imminently.
Throughout her career, English singer/songwriter, musician, producer, and label owner Jane Weaver has explored many different styles and approaches, never staying too long in any one spot while showing mastery of each one she attempts. Following Brit-pop beginnings with the group Kill Laura and indie folk explorations with Misty Dixon as a solo artist Weaver traveled from folktronica sounds in the early 2000s to rich British folk on her 2007 album Cherlokalate, then quirky and strange psych weirdness with collaborators like Wendy & Bonnie and Susan Christie.
After years recording for her own label, Weaver signed with Fire Records and her first album for them, 2017's Modern Kosmology, continued to explore synthesizers and dream pop. After a solo tour of the U.K. in late 2018, Weaver went back into the studio to work on Loops in the Secret Society, a collection of gently reimagined songs from The Silver Globe and Modern Kosmology with cinematically dark ambient interludes interspersed. It was issued in June 2019. A few months later, the label released the self-titled debut by Weaver's side project Fenella, composed as an alternate soundtrack to the 1981 Hungarian cult animation Fehérlófia. After these arty diversions, Weaver returned in 2021 with Flock, an album that had familiar elements but also introduced stomping glam rock, spaced-out funk, and soft R&B sounds to the mix.
