“With the help of BADBADNOTGOOD’s Leland Whitty, alt-rock Toronto band Jane’s Party have once again produced a conceptual wonder of modern sound.”
— Jonathan Frahm (Pop Matters)
“In my world, bands rarely surpass four members. A bass, guitar, piano, and drums are the only essentials needed to get people out of their seats and dancing like idiots. Special effects don’t attract fans, catchy hooks do, and lead singers are always accompanied by rich harmonies and backing vocals. Is this too much to ask of today’s musical talent? Maybe so, but at least there’s one group out there meeting my specifications; Toronto indie-rockers Jane’s Party. ”
— Adam Lalama (Noisey)
“Jane’s Party’s ever-expanding circle of friends and admirers is a result of touring with a wide array of artists over the past several years [Tom Odell, Arkells, Blue Rodeo, LIGHTS, Sam Roberts Band, Lord Huron, Manic Street Preachers], during which they’ve honed their skills at winning over almost every type of audience.”
— Jason Schneider (FYI Music News)

Biography

Formed in 2008, Toronto-based pop-rock quartet Jane's Party - comprised of Devon Richardson, Tom Ionescu, Jeff Giles, and Zach Sutton - are preparing for their fourth, highly anticipated full-length, “Casual Island”, slated for a February 2019 release.

Casual Island” began as a set of home studio demos inspired by Jane's Party's experience supporting Tom Odell's No Bad Days tour across Europe in 2016. After returning home the band immediately called up producer Derek Hoffman (The Trews, Arkells, Elwins, Willa), and set up what would become the “Casual Island” sessions. Bassist/singer Devon Richardson says, "Derek is absolutely brilliant at taking what's initially unique and captivating about a musical idea and amplifying it a million times over". "So much of what made the final recordings came right from the original demos [not far removed from Tom Odell's own recording process]", says guitarist/singer Tom Ionescu. "This album feels very personal to us, like we're sharing that initial intimate experience when you're first coming up with the song and recording it in your bedroom", says keyboardist/singer Jeff Giles.

As of April of 2018, the band has steadily been releasing singles from the upcoming full-length, leading with indie-rocker "You're The Light" (with airplay on Indie88 and CBC2) and followed by introspective-swooner, "Acknowledgements". Each single has been accompanied by a B-Side, "Right Down The Line" featuring DJ Skratch Bastid, and "Surfing On A Sinewave" (Pop Matters) featuring and produced by Leland Whitty (BADBADNOTGOOD), and “Drive” featuring Kirty (Fast Romantics). Drummer Zach Sutton says, "for the four of us, writing and recording music has always been a collaborative process. Bringing in Skratch, Leland and Kirty is our way of expanding the family and getting fresh creative juices into the mix. Every collaboration has been a huge source of inspiration that challenges the way we approach music making". 

With each single, it is becoming clear that ‘Casual Island’ stands to be Jane’s Party’s most mature effort to date, touching on relationships, politics, the pervasiveness of technology, the intractability of human nature, all carried by the breezy riffs and lush vocal harmonies that have become the band’s hallmark.  

For over a decade, Jane’s party has brought their irreverent, genre-bending sound to live audiences around the world; in buzzing clubs and famed concert halls in North America, in stadiums across Canada, and in historic venues throughout Europe, opening for and playing alongside artists like The Arkells, LIGHTS, Blue Rodeo, Stars, Sam Roberts Band, Lowest of The Low, The Sadies, Tom Odell, Manic Street Preachers, and Lord Huron.
