Arghhh . . . why did I not know about Jane Lui before now?
*hangs head in shame*
Better late than never.
From her website bio:
“I’m can be pretty shy, and learned that I feel most earnest and outgoing in music. More than anything, I want to be honest in music; it respects intelligence.” With a sensitivity towards the interplay of sound, space, & subtlety, Lui’s artistry is fierce with utmost musicianship & self-respect.
Below are a few videos that I would encourage you to watch, but be warned, her YouTube channel is a rabbit hole of musical awesomeness . . . he says an hour after clicking on the Waterfalls video.
Here is her most recent project: a cover of Waterfalls by TLC feat. Tamlyn Tomita, Lynn Chen, & Phil Yu!
And to get a sense of her vocal chops and instrumental creativity view this Maroon Five – Muppets Mashup
And for a little fun, here is a 2:30 cartoon medley with Paul Dateh.
