Jane Lewis wears many musical hats—performer, songwriter, music workshop facilitator, and community music instigator. As a songwriter, she is often compared to Carole King, playing piano-based music that draws on her strength as a lyricist and singer. Her writing has been described as “intelligent, poetic, cinematic, and passionate.” She has released two solo recordings, and two recordings with her folk duo Gathering Sparks.
When not on stage, Jane can be found leading music workshops, community singing events, circle singing, and vocal meditation sessions, as well as singing backup vocals for other artists and running Women’s Music Weekend retreats. She is a strong believer in the power of music to bring people together. Due to the pandemic, she is currently leading music and singing workshops online.
Jane’s unique version of the Beatles’ “Come Together” won an Independent Music Award for Best Cover Song in 2015. Gathering Sparks was nominated for Vocal Group of the Year at the 2014 Canadian Folk Music Awards. In 2019, they won Folk Music Ontario’s Songs from the Heart award for their song Bringing in the Light.
