Occupation: Pop singer/songwriter
Her Style: Bold and confident
How’d you get started making music? I was in a pop-rock band when I was 14—we wanted to be Paramore. Then, when I was 16, I started touring with my [then-]band Belle Histoire.
Are show clothes different from your everyday clothes? When I’m not playing shows I wear mostly neutrals, but on stage I want to stand out. My music is high-energy and fun and ’80s-inspired, so I wear a lot of high-waisted things and big prints. I haven’t worn shoulder pads on stage yet, but I’m sure it’ll happen soon.
You were a brunette on The Voice and now you’re a platinum blonde. Yeah—I saw a girl at school one day with silver-gray hair. She looked so cool that I went home and called my hairdresser. I always had bangs and brown hair—a cute, young look—but the blonde hair makes me feel like a woman. A common theme throughout all my songs is confidence, especially my song “Higher,” and part of me feeling confident is feeling that I can pull off platinum hair.
2015 was huge for you. What’s in store for 2016? I started [with my stage name] Jane Decker in April 2015, so I’m coming up on a year with this project, which is crazy. In 2015 I played CMJ [Music Marathon], Bunbury, MidPoint, and a couple of other small festivals. I did a Daytrotter Session and released two EPs—55 and Stonewallin’. 2016 is definitely a time for writing and potentially a new release and some touring this fall.
