    Sunset Sips: Sainte Jane

    May’s performer is Sainte Jane, which is the lovely two piece band – Lauren St. Jane and Jeremy Ezell. Their performances will bring you notes of Lucinda Williams, Linda Rondstat, and Bonnie Raitt. From the southern roots of Georgia comes Lauren St. Jane with her own combination of country swagger and Americana rock. This fiery, female-fronted band offers a raw sound complimented by strong, alluring vocals, ripping licks, and lyrics you’d expect from a true redhead. In both song and sound, Lauren St. Jane is a collective drink that goes down smooth but leaves a beckoning burn for more – a classic country shot with a modern Americana aftertaste.

    From the southern roots of Georgia comes Lauren St. Jane with her own combination of Country swagger and Americana rock. This fiery, female-fronted band offers a raw sound complimented by strong, alluring vocals, ripping licks, and lyrics you’d expect from a true redhead.

    The EP “American Dreams” debuted in 2011 and three months later Lauren was playing for CNN at SXSW. “American Dreams” has been the catalyst that led her to share the stage in 2013-14 with Alabama, Diamond Rio, Radney Foster, Craig Morgan, NEEDTOBREATHE, Shawn Mullins, and Chuck Cannon as well as performing at Turner Field’s Atlanta Brave’s Stadium.

    Heart-wrenching inspiration, prolific writing and a dire dedication to the craft of country combine to ignite the blaze behind the EP and the live show. In both song and sound, Lauren St. Jane is a collective drink that goes down smooth but leaves a beckoning burn for more – a classic country shot with a modern Americana aftertaste.

    ‘Running Around’, Lauren’s newest single co-written with Angie Aparo released 2015 features Jeremy Ezell of The Well Reds, which has launched her newest project Sainte Jane with a new EP to be released Fall of 2016.

    June’s performer is Crooked Wits. The members of Crooked Wits originally met in Clinton, South Carolina at Presbyterian College. Stevie was a quarterback, Maggie was a soccer star, and Spencer…well, he sang in the choir.  While we all came from different backgrounds, we quickly bonded over our love for music.  They played together as much as they could for anyone who’d listen and during the summers we all lived in Black Mountain, North Carolina.  It was there, in the mountains of Western North Carolina, where Crooked Wits truly got its start. Influences of the band include Van Morrison, Dave Matthews, and Old Crow Medicine Show. Check them out at http://www.crookedwits.com/
