Behind the Music: Interview with Falcon Jane

‘Everyone brings their own musical perspectives to the table.’

Describe your music style in no more than 5 words: Chill, groovy, plez, rock!

Where are you from? Rural Ontario – specifically beautiful Hockley Valley, which is about an hour outside of Toronto

Which instruments do you play? I (Sara) personally play guitar, piano and a little bit of bass. We are all multi-instrumentalists!

Who else is involved in your music? Everyone in Falcon Jane contributes their unique parts to the songs. We all work together to craft our sound, and I love the different perspectives everyone brings to the table. 

Where is your go-to place for writing new tracks? Lately I’ve been drawn to writing songs on my back deck, when no one is in ear-shot.

Do you have any releases and/or performances coming up soon? Yaaa! Just released our album, “Feelin’ Freaky” on August 3rd, and we’re playing a lot over the next few months, including Rainbow Trout Music Festival on August 18!

Do you prefer performing live or recording in a studio? Performing live is one of the greatest feelings in the world. It’s like a drug. Recording is also super fun and interesting, but I really love the energy that’s exchanged between musician and audience during a live performance.

Why did you become involved in music? Music was the only way I could properly express myself, and tap into my deep, dark desires. 

What has music enabled you to do? Music has enabled me to find my people, my tribe, and I’m so grateful for that. 

Who are your inspirations? I’m inspired by anyone who is authentically being their true self, while allowing others to be themselves as well. 

Any other creative talents and if so do they influence your music in any way? I’m also a videographer, photographer, and a part-time painter. Video is so similar to music, there’s just a visual element. I approach both of the mediums in the same way. All art forms are therapeutic, so it really just depends what kind of therapy and expression I’m needing at the moment. But music definitely feels the most real to me.
