This full-length solo album is an eclectic folk/pop hybrid that features 10 original songs and 2 classic covers.
Lewis has often been compared to Carole King, playing piano-based music that draws on her strength as a lyricist and singer. Musically, Lewis covers a wide ground, from singer-songwriter ballads to groove-based songs with 60s classic pop flavour. Her writing has been described as “intelligent, poetic, cinematic, and passionate.”
“Everything about this record from the gorgeous songs, crisp lead vocals, stunning harmonies, creative arrangements, the stellar band accompaniment and its production are top drawer…. Sure to be one of the best albums of 2014.” — Jan Hall, Folk Roots Radio
“You have such a beautiful voice, and I absolutely love the groove….I love the rhythms, and the bass work; it’s beautifully produced. Your original songs are refreshing, and your covers are bravely beautiful. Congratulations! I’ll enjoy playing this for my Saturday Morning Show audience.” — Pat Moore, CKCU-FM
“Jane Lewis has a perfect gem on her hands with her latest album, Stay With Me. This mainly piano-driven disc is filled with stunning musical moments. Her gorgeous voice and elegant lyrics supply many of those.” — Hamilton Blues Lovers blog
