Iconic and enigmatic; Jane Siberry is one of the world’s most unique and gifted singer/songwriters. Blessed with a sincere integrity and emotional depth, her work has spanned 3 decades, with the release of 14 studio albums and performances on concert stages around the world. Her 1985 album The Speckless Sky was a huge critical and commercial success and the follow up albums The Walking, Bound By Beauty, When I Was A Boy and her signature song Calling All Angels cemented her status as one of the world’s foremost performance artists.
Jane’s current album Ulysses’ Purse has been released to rapturous acclaim and she will be performing tracks from this alongside her classics.
A Canadian native, Jane’s songs have been covered by numerous artists, with particular success by k.d Lang on her renditions of Love is Everything, Haint It Funny and a stunning rendering of The Valley.
This is guaranteed to be a very special evening with Jane performing solo.
Steve Balsamo and Rosalie Deighton met over 10 years ago at Grammy award winning producer Martin Terefe’s London recording studio where he was working on their respective major label debut albums. Bonding over a love of 70’s singer/songwriters, country music and cake, they vowed one day to record together as they felt their voices would blend and give what Emmylou Harris calls ‘the rub’.
Several times around the world in various musical guises and Balsamo Deighton’s paths crossed again when Rosalie supported Steve’s highly regarded country/rock band The Storys. Having returned from touring with the likes of Elton John, Santana, Celine Dion and Joe Cocker, The Storys asked Rosalie to join and help write and record for their 3rd album, ‘Luck’.
When The Storys decided to call it a day, Steve and Rosalie took it as a sign that the time was right to make some music together. They called on friend and ace songwriter Julian Wilson of Grand Drive, and slowly and quietly kicked some ideas around at his South London studio.
These initial sessions were inspiring, fun and very rewarding and all three realised that indeed they had found ‘the rub’.
