Roots + Stars, Jane's second full-length studio album, weaves earth medicine, cosmic soundscapes and the mythology of the sacred human experience.
In 2016, Jane embarked on three years of world travel, seeking the heart of the Mystery. She wandered from Peru to India, from Thailand to Ireland, from Hawaii through the Pacific Northwest and the great deserts of the Southwest of Turtle Island (commonly known as the United States), and to countless other oceans, rivers, mountains and caves in search of something she couldn't yet name.
Along the way, she was met by guides, teachers and plants from across indigenous lineages and wisdom traditions, each of whom continued pointing her deep inside, to the Source of All. As she wove their medicine with the songs emanating from her heart and the mythology of her own childhood spiritual tradition, she began to craft a unique sound that is the sonic resonance of her True Self.
After years of searching for the right musical collaborator to bring this sound to Earth, she found Arturo LaCruz, an award-winning Peruvian ethnomusicologist, multi-instrumentalist and record producer. Together, they have created an entire world of mysticism and mythology that invites us to journey through the roots of our earthbound bodies and the stars of our timeliness souls in search of our True Selves.

Borne of and celebrating our innate human capacity to create beauty, "Beauty, I Am" invites us to remember. The first single from Roots + Stars (2021), "Beauty, I Am" weaves whispers of the Navajo/Diné "The Beauty Way" prayer, alongside Jane's own journey to remember her capacity to see the beauty in every circumstance that arises. Our human hearts, when freed from the chains of ancient conditioning, hold the key to see truth: that this entire existence, though challenging and often painful, is full of extraordinary beauty.
"Roots + Stars" weaves us out of the consciousness of duality and into Oneness, by inviting us to see our roots as stars and stars as roots, and to drop the divinity that we all ARE deep down into our human bodies.
An homage to the medicine of the Grail Knights, the Grail Queens + Kings, and the dragon keepers, "Dragon Flow" invites us deep into the caves of our inner world to reclaim the gems we've buried there.
In the Amazonian shamanic traditions, healers working with plant medicine sing icaros (songs given by trees, flowers and other plant spirits), that support the harmonization of the human consciousness and the physical body. These songs are profoundly powerful, and hold the capacity to transform very old, painful patterns into new ways of being.
In her years in Peru, Jane received icaros from several different plant spirits, one of which is a tree called Noya Rao, the tree of light. This tree, in the cosmovision of the Shipibo people, holds the codes of the Christ. Through its medicine, we remember our light as Christed beings, fully merged with God. Most of the songs on this album are given from this tree, interspersed with the teachings of a beautiful flower called Bobinsana, and they awaken us to the power of our true selves, our light bodies, to alchemize ancient karmic threads here on Earth. Like Roots + Stars, LIGHT is designed as a journey for healing. These songs are medicine for your awakening, remembrance and embodiment as the rainbow bridge between Earth and Heaven. This light is what you are.
Borne of three years of plant diet in Peru and recorded in Jane's childhood church in Alabama, LIGHT is a journey for your personal healing. Sung in English + Shipibo, an indigenous language of the Amazon), LIGHT is a sacred transmission to awaken your Soul into its full power and true embodiment.
A song for the oceans, rivers, springs, streams, wells-- the matrix of the Mother of Life. Recorded at home and lightly produced in the middle of the pandemic of 2020. May it wash what you're carrying clean.
Live recording + photography of channelled earth + angelic song frequency, recorded in the belly of the Manitou Cave in North Alabama in October, 2019. A sacred site to the Cherokee nation, this cave holds codes and memories of sacred humanity and sacred Earth.
