Laura Jane has performed and recorded with some of the biggest names in the business, such as Latin Superstar Enrique Iglesias, Dave Matthews Band, Kelly Clarkson, Anastacia, the late Teena Marie, Smash star Katharine McPhee, Kid Rock, Joe Walsh, Aaron Neville, and Florence and the Machine. 

Laura Jane’s debut album TO MY PLANET BOO was released in 2005. Her first single off the album SUMMERTIME IN THE CITY was a drum n bass track, which pulsated and was woven with what now would be called her signature sweet vocal texture.  This song got international airplay and great reviews. 

Laura Jane most recently released her second solo album, called EVERYTHING CHANGES.It features upright bass, acoustic piano, percussion and acoustic guitar.  The sound is a cross between Roberta Flack and Karen Carpenter or for a newer reference Norah Jones and Corrine Bailey Rae. 

Laura Jane enlisted Jamiseson Trotter as the producer for the album to help achieve the sound and  their  two heads together created beautiful tracks like Everything Changes, a thoughtful and carefully produced song that is melancholy and yet hopeful.  She once again features Brazilian percussion on the song THE ANSWER – which is more of a mantra than a song – and definitely has that signature Laura Jane vocal texture on it, with vocal arrangements by Jason Paige.  Other stand out tracks are My Confession which is funky and soulful about a woman being scorned by a man but yet rising up to overcome it. And the beautiful duet called the VOW – featuring Jason Paige could surely be a classic love song.
