Jane Ellen Bryant is a bit of a rarity among Austin musicians in that she was actually born and raised here. While most young musicians were struggling to develop their tastes and find other like minded souls, Bryant was knee deep in one on the best music scenes in the world. And she was taking notes. Only 25 years old, Jane Ellen Bryant writes and sings with the swagger of a musician twice her age. That’s not to say she ignores her youth, in fact her songs deal almost exclusively with the daily life lessons of a twenty something coming to terms with their newfound adulthood. While she may be singing about personal experiences, her honesty and witty lyrics give her songs a universal appeal that speak to all ages. A true child of the Austin music scene, Bryant pulls heavily from the city’s rich Americana and Blues traditions, especially powerful female vocalists like Carolyn Wonderland, Suzanna Choffel, and Shelley King. So strap in and take a listen to one of the best new voices Austin has to offer.
