Jane Siberry, real name Jane Stewart, is a Canadian singer-songwriter who began composing her first songs at the age of 17, although she says she had them in mind long before.
She released her eponymous debut album in 1981, an album which was to be highly regarded and which enabled her to move from the independent label Duke Street Records to the much more prestigious label A&M Records.
Although she signed with a major label, she was still going to have to wait for 1984 and above all to reorient her sound before her new album "No borders here" was released. Album which will know a significant success in particular thanks to the single flagship “Mimi on the beach”.
Another notorious success a year later in 1985 with the release of the album "The speckless sky", an album from which the hit "One more color" was mainly extracted, a title which remains to this day the biggest success of his career.
The album "The walking" which came out in 1988 was not really going to achieve the same level of success as its predecessor and struggled to produce any hits. The album "Bound by the beauty" which came out in 1989 will already perform a little better thanks to the title "The life is the red wagon".
The 1990s will unfortunately see the singer fall into alcoholism, an addiction which will somewhat disrupt her creativity but which will not prevent her from experiencing a new major success with the single "Calling all angels" in 1992, track extracted of the album "When I was a boy" which will be released a year later in 1993.
A major success which will unfortunately be his last because anything that comes out afterwards will only have a very limited impact with the public.
To discover or rediscover.

1984 ... first title and already first success. An ideal start to say the least and which ideally positions the singer for the rest of the events ...
1984 ... a talent and above all a potential just waiting to be expressed. Whether in the rhythmic field or in the Intimist, she demonstrates an already obvious know-how !
1984 ... a year 1984 which allowed her to build up slowly but surely. We therefore imagine that the rest will be up to the task. And it will be !
1985 ... which will remain as her biggest success. From the second year, she already reached consecration with an ease to say the least bluffing. HU-GE !
1986 ... obviously, if she reaches consecration the previous year, the rest can only be a notch below. And it is de facto !
1988 ... what she continues to offer is nice, of course. But the level of inspiration has weakened somewhat, it is clear ...
1992 ... here she happened the following decade. Unfortunately, that won't be a game-changer for her. At least for now ...
1992 ... furtive return of success thanks to this Intimist title which obviously holds up. Nothing exceptional but a good job, quite simply ...
1993 ... it is clear that she will not remain as the most talented singer of her generation but she will at least have had the merit of offering titles of certain quality. We will largely be satisfied with it !
1993 ... the adventure continues for good even if the level of success leaves something to be desired. It is clear that it will not continue like this for years to come unfortunately ...
1994 ... an adventure which draws to an end on this title full of finesse. A very gentle outing ideal to end this lovely musical journey, a journey that will have lasted almost 10 years !
