Thirsty Thursday Featuring Sugarcane Jane

Thank you for chatting with us! For newer fans, how did your passion for music and career come about?

Born to run with it. I never considered anything else. I fell hard for the guitar and gave it my life early on.

What was the best piece of advice you've ever been given about pursuing a career in music?

Don’t do it for the money or fame. Never ask for advice unless the person is smarter than you and learn how to take a compliment.

You've played on a lot of stages with a lot of big artists, is there anyone you been star struck by?

Not really anyone that jumps off the mind at this time. However, as an acoustic guitar player I would have LOVED to sit with Tony Rice and get his energy first hand.

At the end of the day, what do you hope is the message of your music? What do you hope people take away from your songs?

Hope and honesty and nothing contrived.

What's your advice for young artists trying to establish a name for themselves? Especially young females that may see you as a role model.

Savana would definitively say BE WHO YOU ARE!

How do you drink your coffee?

Freshly grind the bean, brew in a French press, Oatly Oatmilk Barista Edition, sugar in the raw.

Where is your favorite place to eat in your hometown?

A date nite with Savana to The Wash House restaurant in Point Clear Alabama is our romantic get away.

Most memorable meal while touring. Where were you and what did it involve?

Copenhagen, touring with Neil Young. The band drank two bottles of 1982 Lafite which ultimately we drank our tour bonus… ha ha It was worth it!

Have you ever eaten two meals at the same restaurant in the same day?

Actually if we are in a nice hotel like the Carlisle in NYC… Room service for breakfast… Dining room that night. Call the bank and transfer more funds the next morning.

If you could be sponsored by one food/drink brand who would it be and why?

Sugar in the Raw -organic cane sugar. When we first created Sugarcane Jane, Steve Centanni of Lagniappe labeled us “Organic music at its finest." We like to be spontaneous and allow our music to evolve naturally. We also use this sugar every morning with our coffee and in the afternoon with our tea. The name Sugarcane Jane came from the memories I have of my grandad's sugarcane patch and growing up eating it all the time.
