Jane Siberry

The idiosyncratic Canadian art-pop chanteuse Jane Siberry was born in Toronto, Ontario on October 12, 1955; after taking up the piano as a child, she began absorbing the classical and operatic inspirations which later distinguished her professional work. While earning a degree in microbiology, Siberry began performing at the local coffeehouse where she also worked as a waitress; ultimately, she used her tip money to fund her 1981 self-titled debut LP, a spartan offering spotlighting her ethereal vocal navigations through the eccentric rhythm changes and dramatic mood shifts which ornamented her abstract, atmospheric sound.

Three years later, Siberry resurfaced with No Borders Here, a more assured, cinematic collection highlighted by "Mimi on the Beach," an underground Canadian hit. The critical and commercial success of 1985's evocative The Speckless Sky brought her to the attention of Warner/Reprise for 1988's The Walking, a bold major-label bow comprised of dense, epic-length soundscapes and subtle, intricate melodies. Despite considerable media acclaim, the album failed to dent the charts, and consequently Siberry's next record, 1989's Bound by the Beauty, reflected more commercial concerns, focusing on more direct production and succinct songwriting.

Siberry's next release was a 1992 career overview titled Summer in the Yukon; while comprised primarily of older material, one new cut -- a drastic remix of Bound by the Beauty's "The Life Is the Red Wagon" -- proved revelatory, its painless transformation into a club-ready dance track revealing the true elasticity of the singer's music. As a result, 1993's When I Was a Boy, produced in part by Brian Eno and Michael Brook, emerged as her most eclectic and ambitious work yet, while 1995's Maria found the singer recording with a jazz quintet. After growing disenchanted with the compromises of remaining on a major label, in May 1996 Siberry formed her own record company, dubbed Sheeba; Teenager, her first self-released effort, followed a month later. The live trilogy -- Christmas: Music for the Christmas Season, Trees: Music for Films and Forests, Lips: Music for Saying It -- captured three nights at the Bottom Line in New York and finally saw the light of day in 1999. The melodically beautiful Hush appeared the next year, showcasing a brilliant collection of traditional American and Celtic compositions. City (2001) marked rare material and collaborations with the likes of Joe Jackson, Nigel Kennedy, Ghostland, and others. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Love her voice and the way it speaks to the joy and sorrow that every soul carries. One of my very favorite artists.
Just not impressive on many levels. I wouldn't spend hard earn money on this. The biographer is way too generous and extravagant and exaggeratant in his praise of this person. I would have said artist to describe her but that is giving credit where credit is not due.
Jane moves me like few other artists can. When I Was A Boy is definitely one of the best albums ever made.
Jane is a Goddess among mortals.
First heard Jane Siberry on the soundtrack of "Pay It Forward" singing "Calling All Angels", which remains one of my favorite songs.
In the year 2000 E-Town show cased Jane Siberry as the guest artist for their live broadcast from Boulder Theater in Colorado. She gave a tremendous performance of several songs in her reparatory. “When I Was a Boy” is one of my 20 albums I will have if I am ever lost on a desert island.

Jane Siberry changed her name to Issa, renounced most of her wordly goods and now lives without a home, traveling and performing in small community venues. All the music she has produced is available for donation through her MySpace page.
Saw Jane Siberry at MWMF...loved her ever since...am always looking for her work.
