Hello Jane is the new project from Brisbane singer-songwriter Madeleine McCaw, born from a desire for simplicity when it comes to all things surrounding her music, from writing to recording and releasing. Simplicity can mean sparse, but in the case of Hello Jane’s debut single, ‘Everything’s Alright’, it means clarity and elegance, of meaning and execution.
‘Everything’s Alright’ is a delightful song, and that’s partly because McCaw has married the meaning of the lyrics with the way they’re delivered – when she sings ‘Everything will be just fine’, you believe her, and you also know that the act of listening to the song will actually help achieve that. Music is medicine, amongst other things, and this song is a tonic.
