Spadina Station

Jane Miller

Jane Miller happily joined Spadina Station in 2013 as its soprano.

Having specialized in a cappella and vocal ensemble music throughout her career, Jane is an actor, singer, and composer who relishes any chance to make music with her primary instrument, her voice.

Straight out of Ryerson Theatre School, she formed band Wind May Do Damage, which focused on intricate vocal harmonies, releasing two albums of original music and performing in clubs and festivals throughout Ontario. Jane's tune with the band, Family Car, was included on HMV's Music Sampler and she was awarded a FACTOR Foundation Composer Demo grant. With the band, she opened for Jeff Buckley, Moxy Fruvous, and Ani Defranco, and in her bass and voice duo for Arlo Guthrie at the Ottawa Folk Festival.

Her original bass/voice track Trying, featuring Jane's vocal percussion and bassist Dennis Mohammed (Jesse Cook), was included on legendary Toronto music club C'est What?'s sampler CD in the 90s.

In Jane's solo show, Disco Goalie, she provided her own a cappella sound track of disco songs, in full goalie equipment and platform shoes, touring to sold out houses across Canada.

Jane is the composer of the a cappella score for Lake Nora Arms, produced at Toronto's SummerWorks Festival, and of which NOW Magazine said, "Miller’s songs – alternately playful and profound – connect with the soul."  

She has twice been nominated for Outstanding Performance in a Musical at the Dora Mavor Moore Awards for Theatre in Toronto. 

The other members of Spadina Station are thrilled Jane has come aboard!
