Grainy Blues with Leila Jane

Written by conall. Posted in Blues'n'Jazz, Music

Leila Jane will preform for the Grainy Blues event which will see a host of blues dancers take to the floor to ance away the blues for the night

Leila Jane comes from both London and Donegal. Her passion for songwriting came to her after listening to the blues artist Robert Johnson. Her music can be bothevocative and dreamy and forceful and raw. A hauntingly brilliant bluesy tremolo comes through in her voice when the passion climaxes and can soften again into sweet smoothness. She was described as ”somewhere between Janis Joplin and Sandy Denny” after appearing at the Cambridge Folk Festival. She writes engaging and honest songs that demand feeling in an authentically bluesy americana way with splashes of soul and rock n roll.
