With a name like 'Bowie', you'd kinda think that a career in music would be a foregone conclusion for London based Australian singer/songwriter, Bowie Jane.

But not so - Bowie's been doing the whole ‘superhero’ thing - living a complete double existence - and all unbeknownst to her work colleagues. By day, a mild-manner criminal lawyer, but by night a fully-fledged musician, performing five to six nights a week and secretly courting what is fast becoming a bubbling career in music.

Her story captured the world’s interest earlier this year with TV, radio and press attention worldwide including the Daily Mail UK, Daily Express, NBC News, Reuters, the Star, London Metro, National Nine News and the Today TV Show leading to more than 10,000 hits a day on her YouTube site.

Having learnt classical piano for seven years, Bowie Jane’s strong ear for melody and harmony saw her naturally progressing to singing and songwriting. Her ballsy Lily Allen style lyrics tell the story of real-life situations with honest grit and candor, but with a sharper edge. “I write about things that aren’t normally talked about, looking at things from the perspective that you’d probably ‘think’ about, but wouldn’t feel confident to ‘voice’.”

"Variety is paramount to pop music. Bowie Jane’s output ranges from pulsating dance tracks (“Miss U Hate U”) to acoustic pseudo-ballads (“Close the Door”), allowing her to soundtrack an endorphin rush or a time of reflection. One of the more interesting songs in her is arsenal is “Bomb On Me,” a digitalized jaunt where Jane crafts out an anthem that repels an unwanted suitor. Her propensity for tackling topics that are usually precluded from the pop landscape (also see: “Skeemer Girl”) is where she excels. If variance is king to propelling through the pop world, then its in her words that Bowie Jane will find her place to shine." - Billboard Magazine USA, Brad Holmes

But it hasn't been just about the songwriting. Bowie Jane is an energetic experienced performer who does not shy away from getting the crowd involved. Since moving to London, she has taken to the main stages at Homelanz Festival London (UK), Blackpool Pride Festival (UK), Birmingham Pride Festival (UK), Blackpool Opera House (UK), World Ski Cup and in January 2013 the Australian Open Grand Slam Tennis Championships (Australia).

“A Bowie we should all get behind.” - Pop Justice

"Energetic and frighteningly catchy" - Music Week Tastemaker

Her debut single, Luv Bomb, described as “frightningly catchy” by Music-Week UK, reached number 11 on the UK Music Week Commercial Pop Club Charts, number 9 on the Euro Dance Charts and received airplay on 78 stations across the UK.

Bowie Jane’s follow up single, Bad Boy, is set down for release on 8 July 2013. “There’s a touch of slapstick in the lyrics and a huge smile as she sings “you’re full of sh….shame”; it’s a sing-a-long moment for many girls before a ‘getting over him’ night out I’d imagine. Bad Boy sounds like that sexy teacher telling off her teenage class of boys; or maybe that's just the imagination running wild! It is certainly as catchy as Luv Bomb, but probably a better song and it will certainly build on the success of her debut.” - David Spencer, Music Week.
