Saskatoon singer-songwriter Jen Lane has just released her new single “Shoe”, a teaser for her next album, “This Life of Mine”, which is scheduled for release in March 2016. Shoe, a song written when Jen was housebound with a foot in a cast last winter, is a little bit country, a little bit rootsy, with a twang of bluegrass thrown in to the mix for good measure. While on tour in Ontario, Jen Lane stopped by with her sideman, life partner and manager John Antoniuk to chat about the single, its great new video, her upcoming album, and to play a couple of songs live for us. For more information about Jen Lane’s music visit jenlane.com. Music: Jen Lane “Shoe” (single) (2015, Self), “Waiting For You” (Live), “Grey Skies” (Live) and “Tough Love” from “For The Night” (2010, Self).
