"a one-woman string quartet with self-percussion" - Counterpunch.org
"Alluring" - Toronto Eye
The Cost of Living - Jason's first full-length solo release in over three years. Recorded with the members of his touring band, this album is darker and more solid than anything he has ever done
the city hall thing was nice indeed, it was just a shame she was told she couldn't play in the grounds. she decided to just have a chat with the crowd but then went outside the gate and played 4 songs.
thought the gig was superb, really love the album.
Must admit I thought the gig was disappointing. It was admirable that she went ahead with it after the car accident / broken foot, and her voice was great,
...but the fact she was dwarfed by her speakers, obsured by pillars and the stage was not big enough to include the full show (as she pointed out several times), did make me think that it could have been exceptional but that it was the wrong venue for the show - limelight, empire or black box would have been perfect.
She did say she would bring the full show back later in the tour..
