From Corrine Smith, Independent Reviewer: "Seven Songs in Seven Days" offers not just good storytelling, but also a few peeks into the creative process of songwriting. By writing and thinking about our parents' pasts, we can better understand the paths we choose for ourselves. This book and CD package should be of interest to those intrigued by personal memoirs, by the father-daughter relationship, by the mystique of the Arkansas migrants of the Great Depression, and by the gumption it takes to craft a melody with lyrics out of thin air."

Singer-songwriter, Jane Fallon, is a veteran performer whose smooth, rich voice and well-written songs get noticed. With vocals that have been called “angelic” and “mesmerizing”, by Boston's Metronome magazine, her original songs “combine humor, intelligence, and deep musicality with an artfulness that is unusual.” (Wildy's Word Music blog).
Currently living in New Hampshire, she was born in California, she spent her formative years on the West Coast. As a member of a large musical family, she began singing and writing songs at an early age.
Raised on Traditional country, Appalachian Folk, and Gospel, and trained in classical and jazz, Jane has sung everything from Barbara Allen to Ain't Misbehavin' and La Boheme and back again.
Her own songs cover a wide variety of topics with a contemporary flair that incorporates those influences of pop, folk, swing, and country. Her literary background and ear for the music of words leaves her music tight and well-constructed.
The combination of East and West and a mix of cultural experiences guarantees subject matter that might range from a tribute to her cowboy-hatted dad to an anthem for women affected by the AIDS epidemic in Africa. A clever sense of word play and a humorous take on the world often results in parodies of well-known tunes involved such things as cell-phones and computers, or originals poking fun at shopping and the environment.
"You sparkle when you get in front of a microphone", Dan Gerwertz
"Very Funny." Christine Lavin
"You have a beautiful voice," Cliff Eberhardt
"Voice of the Year!" New England Scrapbook
"She's smart, she's classy, she lights up the room."
Michael Moran, Director, Amazing Things Arts Center,
"Jane Fallon has a lovely voice and writes songs of such elegant simplicity that you often don't realize until the song is over
how well it was crafted."
Mark Stepakoff, Boston area music host and award winning songwriter.
