Jake’s Take’s Podcast: Jane.

By: Jacob Elyachar, jakes-take.com

It is a pleasure to welcome singer-songwriter Jane. to The Jake’s Take with Jacob Elyachar Podcast as the third guest of 2023!

Paraj Jain, the writer, producer, and singer behind Jane., was raised between India and the United States to an Indian father and a half-Black mother. The multiracial artist grew up bouncing between homes, unable to see himself reflected in media and unsure where he fits in. Now, through the latest iteration of his music project, Jane., a play on his last name, the musician is ready to introduce himself as he fully embraces his own identity, unpacking his lived experiences and further establishing his musical vision leading with honesty and spiritually, meeting himself exactly where he is.

Jane.’s debut LP, What a Wonderful Time To Be Barely Alive, arrived in 2021 and is a project that he describes as “made emotionally and almost physically in the clouds, and free from everything, unbound to anything.” The album caught the attention of several tastemakers, including American Pancake, EARMILK, and Mundane Magazine, who all praised it. Spotify also placed the LP on its Fresh Finds Indie Playlist.

Last year, he joined the indie pop duo EXES on tour, followed by a string of dates supporting indie pop superstar Suki Waterhouse. In addition, Jane. will release the forthcoming extended play, Celeste. He co-produced the project with Peter Labberton (St. Vincent) and Mike Derenzo. Both Labberton and Jeremy Lubsey also mixed the extended play.

In this edition of The Jake’s Take with Jacob Elyachar PodcastJane. spoke about the similarities and differences between the extended play Celeste and his 2021 debut. He also shared several stories behind the songs of his most streamed Spotify songs.
