Sugarcane Jane‘s latest album, “On a Mission,” is a masterful blend of Americana, folk, and ska influences that showcases the band’s versatility and unique sound. The album is an eclectic journey through heartfelt ballads, rollicking folk tunes, and surprising ska rhythms that all come together to create a cohesive and engaging listening experience.

The album opens with the track “Try To Make It Look Like Me,” a dynamic and energetic song that sets the tone for the rest of the album. With clever songwriting and strong vocals from frontman Anthony Crawford, the track is a captivating mix of alternative country and folk influences that will have listeners tapping their feet and singing along.

“Spirit Push” is a standout track on the album, with its stripped-down instrumentals and poignant lyrics creating a sense of peaceful introspection. The harmonies between Crawford and vocalist Savana Lee are beautifully blended and add a depth and authenticity to the track that is both soothing and thought-provoking.

The album also features a surprising ska influence, with the track “Fly On The Wall” infusing energetic rhythms and catchy hooks into Sugarcane Jane‘s signature sound. This departure from their traditional Americana style showcases the band’s willingness to experiment with different genres and further adds to the diversity of the album.

One of the album’s most emotional moments comes in the form of “The Candle,” a somber and introspective track that offers a welcome contrast to the more upbeat songs on the album. Crawford’s emotive vocals shine through on this track, conveying a sense of vulnerability and longing that is both captivating and cathartic.

Throughout the album, Sugarcane Jane‘s production is top-notch, with each song thoughtfully crafted and produced to perfectly suit its tone and mood. Crawford’s production skills add an extra layer of depth and polish to the already impressive musicianship of the band.

Overall, “On a Mission” is a must-listen for fans of Americana and folk music. Sugarcane Jane‘s unique sound and diverse influences make for a captivating and enjoyable album that will have listeners hitting repeat. With expertly crafted songs and dynamic production, “On a Mission” is a shining example of the band’s creativity and talent.
