Jane Kramer Biography
Lauded by UK music reviewer Three Chords and the Truth as sounding like she was “…born to gypsy poets and raised by Emmylou Harris,” Asheville, North Carolina-based songstress Jane Kramer has garnered international recognition for the sultry, heartrending originality of her vocals and for the heavy-hitting lyrical eloquence of her songwriting. With deep roots in the traditional music of her beloved Appalachia, Kramer’s songs are introspective and gritty. They sweep listeners down the gravel roads and southern coastal highways, midnight truck stops and lonely motel rooms of “hard learning” and lead home to the Blue Ridge Mountains with moving acceptance of our flawed human experience.
Following the February 2016 release of her second solo studio album Carnival of Hopes, Kramer has been touring nationally and internationally.
Her live performances are interactive, moving and memorable, both when Kramer is backed by her full band featuring the virtuostic strumentalists that comprise Asheville’s Free Planet Radio, Lyndsay Pruett of the Jon Stickley Trio and Billy Cardine of Acoustic Syndicate, as well as when she
is solo, wielding just a guitar and her unforgettable songs.
Quoted as “…an artist on the rise” by acclaimed American songwriter Mary Gauthier, Jane Kramer has performed with such well-known artists as Amy Ray of the Indigo Girls, Appalachian troubadour Malcolm Holcombe, two- time Grammy award-winning bassist Eliot Wadopian, Joan Osborne and Leyla McCalla.
