Welcome to the website of Australian singer-songwriter, Lara-Jane Stewart.
If you had to describe Lara-Jane's songwriting to date in one juicy sentence, you could say it's something like: Jewel, Norah Jones and Alison Krauss having a jam, with Janis Ian on piano, Angus & Julia Stone singing backing vocals, and maybe Fleetwood Mac, Dan Fogleberg and The Waifs fighting each other over who’s going to bring it all home.
In other words, stylistically-speaking, it's a beautiful hot mess of indie-pop-folky-jazzy-rootsy-country-ness.
All talk of genres aside though, Lara-Jane's passion is bringing forth music that is from the heart and for the heart. And so, in the tradition of many millions of folk artists before her, her tendency is to craft the kind of songs that are as compelling and beautiful to listen to in their completely raw, unadorned state as they are fully produced and dressed up to go out for dinner.
Her brand new single, "Marianne", expresses her folk roots more than ever, and has felt like a beautiful coming home for her, both musically and spiritually.
The new single is also a personal celebration for Lara-Jane of her re-emergence onto the music stage after an extended period of devotion to new motherhood, and thus, its release marks the official opening of an exciting new chapter of creative expression and fulfilment for her as an artist.
A track to move slowly to, Waltz As Myself invites you to pour yourself some homemade lemonade and kick back on the front porch, while its lazy drumbeat and even lazier mandolin and guitars do their best to slow the passage of time for you.
Lara-Jane is proud to be performing as part of the 2020 International Women's Week Festival on the Sunshine Coast, in The Only Way Is Up variety show on Friday 13th March. See the event details below or visit the WINDO Inc website to view the 2020 festival program.
