"Jane Weaver is a rare creature in the vanity-stricken world of female singers, and perhaps with a more generous roll of the dice we might all have heard of her. Serving her apprenticeship in the mid-nineties girl-guitar-pop outfit Kill Laura, Weaver would go on to front Twisted Nerve's Misty Dixon and release her critically acclaimed solo mini-album, Like An Aspen Leaf. It was, however, somewhere in between that she secured a record deal with Mancunian music maverick Rob Gretton's Manchester Records. Working and playing live with the likes of Andy Votel, Badly Drawn Boy and Doves, the latter would help her to record a number of acclaimed singles and a debut solo album. However, when Rob Gretton sadly died his label went with him and the album never saw the light of day -- until now! At last, available for the first time on the brand new Cherry Red Records imprint, Bird Records, Seven Day Smile -- Jane Weaver's debut album proper featuring the affable talents of Doves as backing band -- avoids the anthemic arm-wavers, preferring heart-rending songs of fragile beauty. Both haunting and beautiful in equal measure, Weaver delivers a spellbinding collection of songs fusing gorgeous melodies, hypnotic vocal harmonies and nostalgic production with generous measures of Farfisa organ, melodica and understated guitars. Deeply personal, musically adept and heartfelt in the extreme, from the heart warming opener 'Slow Song' through to the luscious 'You're A Riot', this album will seduce and entrance you -- melting all but the cruellest of hearts."
