NYC Blues-Rockers Jane Lee Hooker Back With ‘All Good Things’

Jane Lee Hooker received glowing reviews from fans and music press around the world with their recent singles ‘Drive‘ and ‘Jericho‘. The two songs found their way onto some very influential radio stations, including WDST FM – Radio Woodstock; and there was extensive airplay on Rock and Blues specialty shows across the US, UK and AU – including Triple J and Double J in Australia.

The band returns with another track from their upcoming ‘Rollin’’ album: ‘All Good Things‘ via Symphonic Distribution.

The origin of ‘All Good Things‘ goes back to August of 2020 when, in addition to dealing with the Covid pandemic, guitarist Tracy Hightop’s NJ neighborhood was hit with a severe storm that ravaged the area and knocked out power in the community.

With her family headed out of town, Tracy was left at home with her two French bulldogs, no electricity and a small fan plugged into a neighbor’s generator. “That first night they were gone was miserable – the storm left the weather so hot and humid”. Hightop recalls. “I made my way through a couple bottles of wine that evening before falling asleep on the couch with the dogs. When I woke up the next morning the electricity was still off, I was hung-over as hell, it was still very warm and the sound of the generators was deafening. I was scrolling through Facebook on my phone and came across an old photo of Howlin’ Wolf with his guitar, drinking out of a bottle of whiskey – and I thought this picture is exactly how I feel right now. I picked up my Gibson Hummingbird and as soon as I started playing, ‘All Good Things‘ came pouring out. I recorded a rough version on my phone and sent it to (singer) Dana…

Dana Athens continues, “When Tracy sent me the voice note of her recording of ‘All Good Things‘, I immediately knew this song was something very special. She was gently strumming her acoustic guitar and humming a faint melody, but when it came to the chorus, Tracy had very clear and specific lyrics: Say a prayer on it, on your knees for it, all good things coming your way. I was deeply moved and started filling in lyrics and melodies for the verses, but knew the chorus was already complete. This song came together effortlessly and became the upbeat, joyous rocker that it now is, sending a message of hope and perseverance during times of uncertainty”.

All Good Things‘ was produced and mixed by Matt Chiaravalle (Joe Bonamassa, Warren Zevon, Courtney Love), and mastered by Grammy winner Emily Lazar (Foo Fighters, Garbage, Beck, The Killers, Linkin Park) at The Lodge. Jane Lee Hooker exploded out of New York City in 2015, with members having spent time playing in Nashville Pussy, Bad Wizard, Helldorado, Lez Zeppelin, NYC punk rockers The Wives and Plasmatics offshoot New Hope. The band released a revved up album of Blues covers titled ‘No B!’ in 2016, and were immediately signed to legendary German Blues label Ruf Records. ‘Spiritus’ followed in 2017 and found Jane Lee Hooker touring extensively in support of these records – performing to packed houses across the US and Europe including Germany, France, Austria, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Denmark, Belgium, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic and Luxembourg.

While Jane Lee Hooker’s blend of rock, blues, punk, R&B and soul pays respect to the greats of the past, this is a band that lives fiercely in the present tense. JLH’s fiery performances have made them a must-see live act, and feature the muscular lead guitars of Tracy Hightop and Tina Gorin, the rock-solid rhythm section of bassist Mary Z and drummer Ron Salvo and soul-scorching lead vocals courtesy of Dana Athens. In a world full of manufactured bands and live shows backed up by harddrives, Jane Lee Hooker play rock ‘n’ roll the way it’s meant to be played – loud and with passion.

Jane Lee Hooker loves to play live and share their music with their fans around the world. US dates start in February of 2022 with a European tour to follow in April/May
