fronted by janas hoyt, a veteran of the seminal early 90's line-up of the vulgar boatmen, the mary janes play honest american music from the heart of the midwest.

hoyt, writes plain-spoken poetry about love, faith, loss, pain and joy and sings them with compelling honesty to music that comfortably mingles the values of old country, new americana and hard-edged indie rock.

spring 2001 saw the release of the much anticipated, flame, on flat earth records. once again, hoyt delivered a cycle of songs delving deeply into the heart and soul of a woman both struggling with loss and celebrating the redemption of truth.

...a worthy peer of pj harvey and lucinda williams.
