Lady Jane (Esperanza Friel) grew up in the Western Mass area and spent high school and most of college singing songs to friends. However in the Fall of 2013, she started to take her music more seriously and since then has opened for artists soccer mommy, Simon Joyner, and has toured up and down the East Coast.
"Jane's sound could best be described as a relaxing story on a rainy day. She does an excellent job of telling stories with her lyrics, intonation and rhythm. You don't need to be overly fancy or a showboat if you're great at what you do, and Friel is great at relaxing, acoustic sounds and sweet stories drenched in metaphors. Lady Jane proves that sometimes good things come in small, simple packages." - Wyatt Mineau / The Beacon
