Career

Child is best known for her 1990 hit song "Don't Wanna Fall in Love", which peaked at #2 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart for three weeks in the spring of 1990. She was known for her eclectic fashion style, which included spiked hair with long braids and wearing a chain linking a nose ring to an earring.[1] Her follow-up single, "Welcome to the Real World", was a modest hit, peaking at #49. These originated from her self titled debut, which peaked at #49 on The Billboard 200. In 1992, she contributed a track titled "Mona Lisa Smiles" to the soundtrack of Freejack, a sci-fi action thriller starring Emilio Estevez, which was included on her second release, "Here Not There", one year later. This album was a departure from her debut, in that she mixed standard-issue New jack swing elements along with hard rock tracks, and using outside writers on a few of them. Because of illogical first release ("Here Not There" was the first single instead of the energetic Dance-pop song, "Do Whatcha Do"), it drastically slowed the albums' success. However, since then, the album has become a favourite, receiving critical acclaim from most who own it.

Jane disappeared from the music scene for several years, but kept herself busy working with obscure bands and Japanese projects. In 1996, she began recording and writing her next album, as well as continuing to work on side projects and playing small gigs. Her third album "Surge" was released in 2001 via her own website on her own record label. "Surge" features two singles "Almost Beautiful" and "Nice Day" which have surfaced on some radio & internet radio station playlists. That same year she re-recorded her peace anthem "World Lullabye", included in her first album, and sold the single on her website, all proceeds donated to the Twin Towers Fund. Her last published work was a cover of Tina Turner's "We Don't Need Another Hero" on a Tina Turner tribute album issued in 2004. Jane is now currently working on her fourth record, as well as several side projects, including movie soundtracks.


As of January 2007, Jane was in the studio finishing her fourth record.
