Bay Area singer/songwriter/producer Jane Handcock just released her latest album Where’s Jane? 1.5, giving fans a deeper look into the artistry of this Oakland native. Coming off of the 1.5drop, “SixFourSeven” the video shares the ups and downs experienced by Handcock while dating someone in the Canadian area code. (We’re not saying it was Drake, but we’re not not saying that. 😉 Her sentiments in “SixFourSeven,” about wanting to be strong but also wishing she could let everything go, reflects a young woman who’s done some deep reflecting. This ain’t no fairy tale baby/ The future is scary as hell baby.
Jane’s voice adds not one, but MANY gorgeous patterns over a track that sounds simultaneously vintage and futuristic, singing fluttering pitch-perfect melodies, then effortlessly shifting gears into a hard rap-singing flow that might rival your fave emcee.
As she steps out of her role as a writer into the spotlight, there’s no doubt Jane Handcock is showing us something VERY different than what we’ve seen before. Follow her here if you’re ready for it —-> @handcockjay
