NYC-based Jane Getter is a “triple-threat” (Geoff Wilbur)—guitarist, singer, and award-winning composer. Getter’s 6th release, Anomalia, coalesces a lifetime of musical exploration into intricate arrangements, powerful playing, and killer solos.
Getter has been shredding boundaries since picking up a guitar at age eight. She cites musical influences Mahavishnu Orchestra, King Crimson, Porcupine Tree and guitar influences Jeff Beck, Allan Holdsworth, and Wes Montgomery. On her first tour, with legendary jazz/blues organist Brother Jack McDuff, Getter’s musical language expanded to embrace the groove-oriented music that she saw thrilling audiences. Getter has also toured and played with Lenny White, Ursala Dudziak, Jaimoe (of the Allman Brothers), Michal Urbaniak, Kenny Garrett, The Roots the jam, Mike Clark (Headhunters), Adam Holzman & Brave New World and the Saturday Night Live Band.
Following solo albums Jane (Lipstick Records, 1999), See Jane Run and Three (Alternity Records, 2005, 2012), the new songs Getter was composing had a fuller, richer sound than anything she had recorded before. For releases On (Snapper’s MadFish Music, 2015), ON Tour (Big Fun Productions, 2017) and the upcoming, Anomalia, Getter formed Jane Getter Premonition to fulfill the promise of these compositions, assembling players Adam Holzman (Steven Wilson Band, Miles Davis), Alex Skolnick (Testament), Chad Wackerman (Frank Zappa), plus Bryan Beller, Mark Egan, Gene Lake, Stu Hamm, special guests Vernon Reid, Corey Glover, Theo Travis and singers Randy McStine and Chanda Rule.
Jane Getter Premonition has carved out a niche at the intersection of jazz, metal, rock and singer-songwriter with masterful playing of Getter’s “complex, sophisticated, and dynamic” compositions (All About Jazz). On tour, JGP has dazzled audiences at ProgStock, Outreach Music Festival (Austria), San Francisco Jazz Festival, bFlat Bar (India), Guitar City (Poland), Borderline (UK), North Sea Jazz Club (Netherlands) Iridium, and opened for Allan Holdsworth and Brand X.
Getter’s inventive approach to improvisation using scale design is available as a course on TrueFire.com. Getter’s extensive teaching credits include clinics and master classes for national and international institutions Guitar City (Poland), Outreach Music Festival (Austria), NYU Guitar Intensive, Cal State’s Jazz School, National Guitar Workshop, McNally Smith College of Music (Michigan), Sarah Lawrence College, Hochschule für Musik (Germany) and Swarnabhoomi Academy of Music (India), in addition to private clients.
Jane Getter Premonition’s touring line-up is Jane Getter (guitar/vocals), Adam Holzman (keys), Alex Skolnick (guitar), Mark Egan (bass) and Chad Wackerman or Gene Lake (drums), with appearances by Randy McStine (guitar/vocals).
