Crazy Jane is/was the now disbanded Charleston, WV band fronted by Karen Allen. A mix of alternative folk acoustics and funky jazz, their music ranges from mellow to screaming.
Their self-titled second album does not hold the same shaking fire as their out-of-print debut, Choice Oranges, but it still holds that quirky, spunky charm that is Crazy Jane.
Songs like “24/Seven” and “Ride” have a slow, smooth groove, while others like “Frica” are bouncy and fun, and the tune “Amazing” showcases the soaring range of Karen’s voice.
If you appreciate local, independant talent, you’ll love Crazy Jane.
