About Jane Lui
Listening to singer-songwriter Jane Lui’s music is like watching a Michel Gondry film. There’s a whimsical homemade feel that’s inventive and honest. Jane produces her own music & videos with piano, guitar, found objects, handmade music boxes, and fireplace brushes against banjos.
Goodnight Company, Jane’s third album released January 2011. The epitome of DIY artists, she raised over $11,600 on Pledgemusic.com in two months directly from fans to fund the album. “I definitely feel more responsible to my fans.”
Jane’s hard work has produced great success with a “Best Recording Nominee” at the San Diego Music Awards 2011. The ceremony will take place Monday, August 8th at 7PM to recognize the achievements of the diverse local music community.
While getting ready for the album release in 2010, Jane was invited to audition for San Diego’s stage production of Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog – the cult web-series written and directed by Joss Whedon (2008) and starring Neil Patrick Harris and Felicia Day. Jane is casted as the female lead, Penny. Her music’s geek-chic aesthetic converges perfectly with the show’s demographic, both with a love of all things comic-related. The show is set to run for three weeks in July, overlapping San Diego’s Comic-Con.
Jane was showcased at CMJ 2010, where critics liken her to Feist, Fiona Apple, Cat Power, and Rufus Wainwright. She has opened for Jason Mraz, Vienna Teng, Jay Nash, Jim Bianco, Kate Earl and Tom Brousseau among others on national, Canadian, Australian and UK tours. Jane was also recently nominated for a 2011 San Diego Music Award.
