there’s no home.

jana hunter handmade her lo-fi dreamy recordings until one night she played a show with devendra banhart and soon after, he signed her unto his own personal label gnomonsong.  

the way jana makes music is simple; she knows how to write lyrically and musically. her second full length 2007 release, there’s no home was created in two weeks at a friend’s house in houston, texas. without overstepping any boundries, jana produced her album in such mysterious and perfect raw quality. taking sincere but insecure qualities from her debut and creating that into a new beginning of confidence truly proves that she is one of the greatest, underground songwriters out there now.

hold on hold on
the road may come undone


About The Author


“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
