Episode 5 — IAN JANES

Note from Ian everyone:

Hi there, you likely saw me perform a house concert at Sea-Esta (Brenda’s place). She’s been kind enough to host me a couple of times! The internet is a busy spot and it can be pretty tough to get people’s attention, so here I am on facebook!

I have a new album called Episode 5 that came out on May 12th and I’m selling it with a beautiful companion book that has the full lyrics, credits, photos and my narrative introductions all about writing and recording the songs. This is a way to both offer music fans more value AND allow me to earn money from my recorded music and ideas.

During normal times I would have been coming out to play for you and tell you all about my songs and experiences in person, but given our current reality, this isn’t possible. By combining the album with the book I have created an experience that is similar to my live show.

If you like my music, please take a moment to navigate to the Episode 5 page on my website to learn more about the project and find out how to buy. You can watch the ‘explainer video', see photos of the book and preview the music by CLICKING HERE https://www.ianjanes.com/episode-5

Just to give you an example of how much a purchase means to me….it would take me 7500 streams to generate the $30 that I get for ONE book & album bundle.

While you’re on my site, be sure to click the top banner to read the new story about the project just published in American Songwriter

 IAN JANES - EPISODE 5Ian writes songs, records them, then makes a book about it. Many talented people contribute. BUY NOW ”This record and book are intended to be a break from your screen...to give you something to do with your hands, eyes and brain while you listen. I guess my hope is that by o...

Something special in Episode 5, thanks Ian!

This was a ton of work but a true labour of love. Combining the music with a book of photographs, the complete lyrics and my ramblings about why and how we wrote and recorded these songs just felt like a better way to connect with my audience...at a time when we could both use that more than ever!

There are so many incredible things to see when the sea is in your backyard. I think I hear a song!

Listening to the water and air bubbles as the tide changes. Fascinating!

Really enjoying the beautiful songs and new releases from a fellow Music Therapist Darrel Cameron, and hope you will check out Blue Acres to hear his music and the live collaborations of talented minds. There has been many with music therapists coast to coast. The next one featuring Sarah McInnis and Valmy Assam. Thank you Darrel for your contributions 😊🎶

My song "Hard to Find" is now available on all streaming platforms, and for purchase at Bandcamp (all links in my bio)
.
This song is me "signing-off" to parts of my old life that were constricting and hurtful—where I did not belong. I was in a relationship that became unhealthy for both parties. This was propped up by a church community driven by fear, shame and a limiting worldview.
.
“Hard to Find” describes what it was like to realize that I didn’t belong at my church. That I didn’t belong in the marriage I was in. That “who I am” was not wanted and not welcomed. And that I was being shamed for it.
.
For over four years, my old church community has been silent to me.
“Hard to Find” is a response to that silence.
.
Spiritual abuse, religious shame and manipulation are real, and in my case, deeply personal.
John O’Donohue says it is like a tar that gets in your soul, and that it is difficult to get out.
This song is a statement that I will not allow myself to be manipulated in relationships or belief systems any longer.
.
You won’t know me at your table,
You can’t see me with your eyes,
You can’t put your finger on me, though you try.
.
