Review from Medium.com:

Andi Jane’s music is that dim speakeasy you’ve heard whispers of, a place around the corner where those in the know slip away to taste a fare more exotic. If you follow the increasing hum of roots music and muffled revelry coming from that dark alley, you might just emerge into a neon Babylon of song, dance, and wonder. Welcome, you’ve just found one of Nashville’s hidden gems — Andi Jane & The Honky-Tonk Cabaret.

Count yourself lucky. While the music will remain just as transcendent, it’s only a matter of time until Andi Jane’s singular blend of country, jazz, rock, and R&B will require larger venues. Her electric performance takes the audience on a journey. Piano driven honky-tonk gives way to dramatic horn numbers, the show ebbs and builds like a multi-act play, seamlessly fusing traditional American music with worldly rhythms and dance. This immersive variety does not act to divert one’s attention from her poignant lyrics, it enriches them. After all, Andi is a true songwriter who has set out to put her own spin on a hallowed yarn, and it’s a weave that can only come from a dreamer."
