ROCK OF ASIAN: Give Jane Lui Some Money, Honey

February 17th, 2010 | 2 comments | Posted by Diana




Things are looking good for Jane Lui. After a whirlwind 2009 (Thank you, YouTube!), the mistress of melancholy has  herself a good therapist, a fresh look on life, and a new sound she’s ready to play with. That’s right, play. Our girl’s in a good place right now and she wants to share!

Says Lui:

“I’m learning daily as I go, and have found a new side to my songwriting/soundscaping that’s nudging me in my sleep. So, for the New Record, I want to follow wherever this feeling is taking me, and bring something bright and shiny to the table.

But after self-funding two solo albums in 2005 and 2007 (both available at CD Baby), the indie singer/songwriter knows all too well how long it could take to save up for a new recording. Frankly, happiness can’t wait.

And so she is doing a 60-day fundraiser in pursuit of happiness. The goal: $12k to make the New Record a reality, an all-or-nothing effort in which no one is charged if the goal isn’t met. After a week, pledges have gotten her 27% of the way there. Can she go all…the..way? Can we help her?

After all, she does make a pretty good case:

And wisely, she’s promised fun stuff for pledges! Our weakness just happens to be fun stuff. More importantly, we we want to witness the joys of her new sound. Lui lovers, please pledge here!

To get to know Jane better, check out her recent conversation with our friend Steve Nguyen here.

    Definitely go to CDBaby. I tried looking at my usual source, named after a rather large river. Didn’t have the first, second was much more expensive. Yay.
    Do watch all of Jane’s Youtube videos. I love the written lead-ins to many of them, the covers and originals are awesome (I especially liked “Samba e Amor”, in Portuguese – beautiful).
