July’s Album Of The Month
Jane Handcock a graduate of the Oakland School for the Arts has been in the music game for a minute with writing credentials for Rick Ross, Tyrese, Kehlani, Keke Palmer, Adrian Marcel, Raphael Saadiq and Kelly Rowland to name a few. She has now stepped out on her own with her ‘Where’s Jane? Series of EPs. So far she has blessed us with ‘Where’s Jane?Series 1’ and ‘Where’s Jane? Series 1.5’. Her songwriting skills are stellar as can been heard on ‘All Of Me’, ‘Can’t Pretend’ and ’Nxgger’ taken from the 9-track EP. This Californian artist is simply oozing tunes at the moment whether she’s writing music for somebody, providing background vocals or listing as a feature – she’s busy! There are also some individual tracks floating around not available on the series, check out ‘Function’ and associated video. Jane’s music is full of baselines and rhymes, vulnerability and authenticity, her music touches my spirit!
