Imagine We Have Wings

Jane Godfrey

Compelling stories of universal experience gleaned from daily life and family history; introspective vignettes exploring social issues; songs of loss and the redemptive joy of carrying on.

Growing up in a large family of musicians and artists, St. Louis native, Jane Godfrey, has been singing and playing guitar most of her life. Jane found her true calling in midlife when she ventured into songwriting, creating a genre she calls “Urban Campfire Cabaret”. She had her first solo gig at the age of 50 and recorded her first CD, “Choose Beauty”, shortly thereafter. Through her music, Jane strives to honor the ordinary and reveal the beauty and little truths in everyday life. She performs locally and nationally as a solo act, as well as in duos, CatBird, and My Aunt Jane. With songs both personal and universal, Jane moves her audiences and draws them in to share her intimate virtual campfire circle. Here’s what some folks are saying about Jane and her new CD, “Imagine We Have Wings”:

Bravo! This is remarkable stuff. Powerful lyrics and beautifully crafted songs, with wonderful arrangements and backing. This is, in my opinion, a masterwork. Well worth the long wait, time and effort. Steve Perron, Writer/producer – KMOV-TV, host of The Wolf Café open mic in St. Louis, and Singer/Songwriter

I absolutely love the imagery of your songs and the storytelling aspect of your music. I found every song to be touching and relatable, and I'm grateful I had the opportunity to hear them live. Thank you for finding the beauty in this world and for sharing it with us through your music. Leanne Magnuson Latuda, Artistic Director and Conductor, Women’s HOPE Chorale of St. Louis

Choose Beauty

Jane Godfrey

Original Americana. A versatile and pleasing blend of folk, rock, bluegrass and beyond, with a bright and refreshing flavor; sophisticated with a subtle texture of humor; organic and homegrown from Jane's imagination.

St. Louis native Jane Godfrey has been singing and playing guitar most of her life. Coming from a large family of musicians and artists, Jane has always been creatively inclined. While in her insomniac phase around the turn of the century, Jane turned to songwriting as a creative outlet for her own amusement. Jane’s passion for songwriting grew, prompting roadtrips to Nashville where her skills were nurtured by attending songwriting workshops and performing at writers’ showcases, including the infamous Bluebird Café. Jane was encouraged, while on the road to the creation of her own CD, by having two of her songs included in compilation CD’s. Jane’s song, “Finally Loving Myself” can be heard on Gracie Vandiver and Friends’ recovery music CD, “Trail of Light”, which also includes such songwriting greats as Paul Williams and Mary Gauthier; and “Thank You Ms Juliette” is on the Girl Scouts of the USA’s CD, “Sisters Hand in Hand”. Jane’s own debut CD, “Choose Beauty”, includes 12 songs, many of which are enhanced by a blend of sibling harmonies and musicianship. “Choose Beauty” is a collection of original Americana songs, grown from Jane’s imagination, experience, and observations of the drama, comedy, and beauty in everyday life.
