Toronto-based pop-rock quartet Jane’s Party – comprised of Devon Richardson, Tom Ionescu, Jeff Giles, and Zach Sutton – have just released “Casual Island”. “Casual Island” began as a set of home studio demos inspired by Jane’s Party’s experience supporting Tom Odell’s “No Bad Days” tour across Europe in 2016.

After returning home the band immediately called up producer Derek Hoffman (The Trews, Arkells, Elwins, Willa), and set up what would become the “Casual Island” sessions. Drummer Zach Sutton says, “for the four of us, writing and recording music has always been a collaborative process. Jane’s party has shared stages with the likes of Arkells, LIGHTS, Blue Rodeo, Stars, The Trews, Sam Roberts Band, Lowest of The Low, Matt Mays, Tom Odell, Manic Street Preachers, and Lord Huron. – Jane’s Party
