Dutch singer-songwriter, Janne Schra, blends pop and country vocals for her unique sound. Getting her start in 2001 with a band called Room Eleven, Schra has kept herself from being pigeonholed into one genre of music. With vocals that sound similar to Melody’s Echo Chamber and Florence + the Machine, Schra brings a heartwarming sound to her music, often accompanied by acoustic guitar playing as well as a plethora of other instruments (fiddle, keyboard, electric guitar). Having released her latest album, Ponzo, last year Schra has kept busy touring all over Europe and recently playing here in Austin at this year’s SXSW.
Janne Schra stopped by Studio 1A on Friday and played some of her music for us. If you weren’t able to hear it live, no sweat, you can stream here, on KUTX.
