The rock world is a difficult place for female fronted bands, escaping the comparisons to No Doubt and Garbage is no easy task. Saving Jane is an example of a band that has no business drawing such comparisons; they are in a whole different class than the aforementioned bands. This band has a lead singer that actually writes her own lyrics, a rare trait today. Granted, Marti Dodson is easy on the eyes, but putting that aside, she brings the whole package musically. Strong hooks, intense vocals, and lyrics that are heartfelt, and in many cases cleverly written. This is evident not only on the title track and first single “Girl Next Door”, but also on the hook filled “Happy” which could easily be a hit on radio today. Starting off as an acoustic duo singing at bonfires, this band has moved to an alternative rock sound, which in many ways seems to have helped the band craft well arranged songs, one of Saving Jane’s strengths. Given the right promotion, Saving Jane could easily become a breakout band in 2006, and redefine what a female fronted rock band is all about.
