Jane Lui's Site Has DMG Photos

JaneI'd like to thank my friend Jane Lui, one of my favorite local singer/songwriters, for posting on her web site almost two dozen photographs that I've taken of her during the last 10 months. Check them out at JanesHands.com! I shot this photo of Jane right before a gig in July.

JANE LUI: TeargirlI first took pictures of Jane last October at the GoGirlsMusicFest at Humphrey's, then I shot her again about two weeks later on a balcony at The Abbey during the San Diego Indie Music Fest. This year I've photographed Jane opening for Danielle LoPresti at Twiggs, at the official release of her "Teargirl" CD at Lestat's West, as part of "Acoustic Alliance 6" at 'Canes, and again at Lestat's when she opened for Sylvie Lewis.

I really like Jane's voice a lot. It's kind of sultry, husky, syrupy, whiskey-stained, tea-stained? I dunno ... I just like it. If you haven't heard Jane sing, click on the picture above of "Teargirl" to hear samples of some of her songs, or visit her MySpace profile at MySpace.com/janeshands.
