Jane's new project, "Low-Backed Dress" is due out in June 2007! The new songs plus new versions of old favorites showcase Jane's stellar lead vocals and also allow her to create moods and evoke emotions with her ounique background vocal arrangements. Her jazz/rock musicians play with energy and creativity, and Jane rises to the occasion with her own piano and keyboard work.
Smooth yet powerful vocals and emotional intelligent lyrics mark the songs of Jane Brock. Living near Nashville but not part of the country scene, Jane enjoys performing live in the competitive Nashville songwriting community, and is developing a strong following as well as new interest in her audience. In addition to local "songwriter night" events and private parties, Jane has played several times at the famed Bluebird Cafe.

Broadjam Top 10s
Jane's songs continue to make the Broadjam Top 10 listings:
In January, 2005, Jane began opening up her songs for review on Broadjam. Within a few weeks, her songs became featured in several of the Broadjam Top 10 listings.
Tennessee Top 10--"I'm Not Afraid To Fall", a pop-country tune with a popular ear-grabbing intro, was the first of Jane's songs in this category. It stayed for about 2 weeks, followed quickly by the sexy, bluesy "Blue Jean Meow", the evocative "Roxanne Is Really Not My Name", and the poetic "If You'd Be So Inclined (acoustic version)", which peaked at #2 for weeks and later advanced to the Regional Top 10. (Note: Jane has since re-done and re-uploaded her vocal for "I'm Not Afraid To Fall", so check out the new and improved version.) And most recently, entering the Tennessee Top 10 at #8, is "The Girl With the Melting Heart", Jane's take on classic pop/jazz standards from the style of the 40s.
Genre Top 10s--The sassy and jazzy "He Hasn't Met Me Yet" entered the Country-Alternative category in January 2005 and remains there hovering around #5 and #6. A differently produced "If You'd Be So Inclined" also entered the Country-Alternative chart at #10 and has moved already to #9 within a short period of time. Interestingly, "If You'd Be So Inclined (acoustic version)" has been placed in the Pop Top 10 as well, moving quickly from #10 to #9 in the Pop Top 10 and from #3 to #2 in the Pop-Alternative category.
Regional Top 10--As of yesterday, "If You'd Be So Inclined (acoustic version)" has reached the Regional Top 10! Despite its poetic lyrics and subtle piano instrumentation, this song shows lots of strength and life as it continues to stay in the charts and cross genres. Listeners and reviewers give it consistently high ratings, so Jane has done something really right with this song!
