Toronto-based indie quartet Jane’s Party have announced a string of Canadian tour dates, kicking off in Sault Ste Marie on February 16. See below for details. The band just came off a hugely successful 13 city European tour supporting BRITs Critics Choice winner and popular singer-songwriter Tom Odell, who is a big fan of JP. Says Parisian Karma Spirit after the band’s set at the legendary Élysée Montmartre, “Jane’s Party is the reason we came tonight and [we were] not disappointed. The group electrifies an already full Élysée Montmartre. After ten years of singing in bars in Canada, the group is where it deserves [to be] tonight; in front of a crowd that has eyes only for them.”
Today, the band unveils a new video for hit single “Coming On Strong” remixed by DJ Hemingway, a New Jack swing DJ, and set to a backdrop of retro video games. Watch + share the video HERE.

After paying their dues playing Toronto’s vibrant bar scene and touring across Canada, Devon Richardson, Tom Ionescu, Jeff Giles, and Zach Sutton, released third full-length LP Tunnel Visions earlier this year via Cadence Music. Tunnel Visions features 10 freshly minted, catchy tracks, including the runaway hit first single “Coming On Strong” which has been streamed over 400,000 times since it’s release. With Tunnel Visions, they offer an original take on a classic sound, with compositions and harmony-filled melodies that feel at once familiar yet fresh. All in-demand talented musicians in their own right, JP fuses genres from folk and funk to stripped-down guitar rock, with synth-pop flourishes and splashes of grunge. Their music often strikes a perfect tonal balance that fluctuates between plaintive, gritty to can’t-get-it-out-of-your-head, to just downright pretty.
Jane’s Party have collaborated and shared the stage with Blue Rodeo, Sam Roberts Band, The Arkells, Wintersleep, Matt Mays, The Maccabees, The Rural Alberta Advantage, Tom Odell, Lights, Manic Street Preachers, and many others. More tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
