Say Jansfield began life as a solo project by former tRANSELEMENt songwriter / frontman Jay Stansfield, after the band sadly split in 2004. 2 members joined Say Jansfield in the quest to change the world of the Music Industry: Rob Ashworth and Maria Stansfield. Thus far releases have been digital and DIY has been at the forefront of the music production, with ALL recordings done at home in Pendle. CD-R singles and already 2 albums have been produced in this way and are available online, however the hand-made CD-R's were of limited production and are therefore now difficult to obtain. The releases have so far been on Creeping Bent which is based in Glasgow and run by Douglas MacIntyre. Live performances consist of three smartly dressed lovelies playing a range of instruments from Mandolin to Flute, through to samplers and soaring sweet harmonies with electronics and beautiful bass. Their music has been described as many things from folktronica to retro-pop and is therefore un-categorisable- it is, however, extremely accessible to all and will open up new doors for music that was previously seen as too alternative for the mainstream market. A new genre has been born. A new ethos is emerging. www.myspace.com/sayjansfield
