Jane Germain’s musical journey has taken her from her hometown, Sydney, to Western Australia and all the way back to her Chinese heritage (her Manchurian great-grandmother married a Scottish missionary).
She’s played all the styles from folk to funk, blues to bluegrass that express her emotions and musicality in a career that’s won five WA Country Music Awards, Country Arts funded headline tours of regional WA, a residency in Beijing awarded by the Australia–China Council (where she collaborated with Beijing based traditional Mongolian musicians, Hanggai on her album, Chinese Whispers) and an invitation for her to represent Australia at the 2010 World Expo in China.
Jane has recorded 6 albums, as well as being in high demand as a session player on other Projects. Jane was invited to be a part of the great Banjo Babes International Ltd Calendar in 2018. She is the first Australian artist to be included and features as Ms May.
Jane’s song Listen to What You Know was presented with the Tasmanian Composers Festival – Song of the Year award, and her new album, Home on the Hill has been receiving rave reviews (and awarded Independent Album of the Year at the Western Australian Music Awards in February 2018).
