A Brief History:
Jamie Blechynden has a career that spans over 20 years in the Australian music industry. A one time lead vocalist of a metal band and the front man for the blues and rock band ‘The Grasscutters’ in the late 90’s, Jamie’s passion now lies within alt. country, bluegrass and roots and has come full circle from his somewhat loud beginnings. Jamie plays a variety of instruments for Very Jane including acoustic guitar, dobro, mandolin, lap steel & banjo; as well as vocals. Not only a talented musician with an affinity for the dobro, he is also an accomplished composer and producer for television programs & other recording artists.
Lead vocalist and acoustic guitarist Victoria Jane could be depicted as a vocal mesh of Sheryl Crow and Alison Krauss. With a style and harmony that could be best described as sweet, her voice is truly captivating. With roots in drama, jazz and rock, Victoria has been a fixture on the Barossa Music and Drama scene since the early 90’s. Victoria was lead singer for the band ‘After Hours’ and has lent her voice to a commercial radio jingle or two.
