Jane Weaver - The Fallen by Watchbird


Singer-songwriter Jane Weaver has written a beautiful  fairytale book to accompany her recently released album -  The Fallen By  Watchbird.

This lovely hardback book combines stunning fairytale illustrations by Mancunian filmmakers  Kluncklick (Yo Gabba  Gabba/Bobby Conn) with the author's unique lyrical narrative. The Fallen By Watchbird is designed to appeal to  child-like imaginations of all ages.  

When a girl  becomes estranged from her heart's desire it takes  a special kind of  energy to bring them back together. But is the power of true love strong enough or will she have to call upon her faithful magical Watchbird to guide her through her mystic and treacherous   quest?

Jane Weaver is a singer-songwriter, performer  and  producer of music from the North of England. Alongside a  discography of six  self-penned albums she also runs the femme  freak-folk imprint Bird Records  through Finders Keepers Records.  

Jane also organises international  events and compilations under the Bearded Ladies moniker (Including the live revival of bygone folk-pop legends at Jarvis Cocker's Meltdown  festival in  2007).

Her latest conceptual Folkloric  record project, The Fallen  By Watch Bird comprised modern artists  alongside latter day legends like Wendy  & Bonnie and Susan Christie on tracks that have since been re-arranged by  Demdike Stare and The Focus Group under the title Watchbird Alluminate. The latest incarnation of this project explores its literary form with the release   of this beautiful book.
