damien okane'Working with Jane on my new album Areas Of High Traffic was a fantastic experience. It was a lesson in total professionalism. She achieved AOHT a huge amount of coverage in national and local press, masses of airplay throughout the country and further afield and raised the profile of the album and me considerably. To top it all off, she is an utter delight to work with. Extremely highly recommended. All hail the 'Brace Machine!' Damien O'Kane
