Northern White: My song about frac sand mining in Wisconsin won me first place in the Woody Guthrie Songwriting Competition last July. You can hear the song here: http://banmichiganfracking.org/?page_id=2580 It has also just been named Grand Prize Winner in the National Environmental Songwriting Competition sponsored by the Connecticut Songwriters Association. I am honored by both of these awards and happy to educate others about that tenuous environmental thread that connects us all.

It’s hard to find any serious weaknesses when listening to the CD.
From start to finish this latest release from Jane Fallon entitled "Tangled in a Tree” is a powerful, inspirational, uplifting, delightful and impressive catalogue of music. The music is very consistent, well-crafted and extremely entertaining. Note for note, song for song there isn’t really weak piece on this entire catalogue. The production strokes: writing and playing abilities of this production are rock solid. The catchy folksy melodies and harmonies are well crafted and the lyrical content is packed to the hilt with rich conventional wisdom and a strong spiritual connection may will gravitate to. The songwriting – all consistent musical experiences, each one possessing a unique personality, flair and signature groove. The writing, playing and singing abilities of Jane Fallon and her band are rock solid. The artistic presence from Fallon is impressive and her overall persona is something many folks will gravitate towards. Jane Fallon is one of the good artists in a world full of soulless clutter.

"Jane, as a presenter, I get CD's to review and consider at the rate of about one a day. Yours is very special. It makes it hard to get my job done - which is to listen to all those others because I'm so busy listening to yours over and over."
Michael Moran, Amazing Things Arts Center
“Give Me Grace” should be on the playlist of every folk station in America!”
Dan Cloutier, Host, Amazing Grace Open Mic

City Girl (2006)
Rich, clear, right-on-the-mark vocal cords. I'd give my tongue to sing that well." George D
"What a beautiful and professional CD it is. I guess the best way to put it is - I'll buy every CD you make." Grace A.
Many congrats to you on your new CD, City Girl. You've voice is warm and beautiful, and I love the way you hit those "blue notes" in The Right Road. Seth's production is perfect - It's fun, professional, and he keeps the record feeling sincere. Marc Herman
Jane Fallon has one of those really comfortable voices. . . . there's some stage banter, which I love. It gives a nice glimpse into what she's like live and I like it. This is a well done record. Very polished and if you like folksy country music, it's one to put on your list. Collected Sounds
Jane Fallon is one of those special artists whose music you cannot really categorize. Her songs are simple, poetic and delicate acoustic dittiess that have a unique, subtle charm and delight about them. Each song is beautifully crafted, and often has a slight celtic presence whilst Jane's voice is lovely and soothing . . . Jane's voice spreads across the lyrics, which leaves you totally breathless and speechless.
Nicky Baldrian, Internet Review MHR Area
A good, loving album that deserves to be bought. It will make you sad and home-sicky and perhaps bring a smile to your memories. Jane sings it close to the mic, so you catch a voice that breaks against the edges now and then, proving herself real, and yet a real pleasure.
Ben Ohmart, Muses Muse
Jane Fallon is a new voice to me, but she has a lot to say and is worth listening to. . . [she] makes comment on social ills that are well-known but seldom given space in our minds and thoughts . What better accolade can a songwriter have than being capable of such power in our modern world?
