Cannonball Jane


The mash-up has brought about a whole new variety of music, or at least a whole new way in which we digest and assess music. No longer do we see the musical hodgepodge of, say, Beck, as just that, musical hodgepodge; a potpourri of influences, favorites, intrigues, and random ideas and curiosities. Now, whenever I hear something that reminds of something else, I really try to analyze those foundations. I think that's because of folks like Danger Mouse, Girl Talk, DJ A-Trak, etc. ...

Anyway. Cannonball Jane (MySpace) is a complex blending of Carol King, Francoise Hardy, Bikini Kill/Le Tigre, the Raincoats, and many more female visionaries.

On top of it all, the Cannonball Jane's day job is ... elementary music teacher in a Bridgeport, CT school! Ya never know ...
