Individually respected by their music-industry peers and acclaimed by domestic and international audiences, the chemistry between Jane Germain & The Lazy Boys (aka Ian Simpson and Adam Gare) creates an audience reaction of feel good entertainment and delight.

The individuals in this vibrant trio have collectively attracted a sackful of music industry awards – at last count seven Gold Guitars, an Aria Award, WAMI nominations, four WA Country Music Awards for best Vocal Group or Duo performance – and widespread critical praise.

Fans already know what to expect from these talented performers whose combination of country, blues, swing and bluegrass, as well as their ready acceptance of musical influences from other cultures, is marking new territory on the national music scene.

Jane and Ian have just won the WA Country Music Awards for the fourth year running - and have released their new album , No Fun Allowed to rave reviews!

Ian started off 2011 with a Gold Guitar award for Instrumental of the Year at Tamworth with the tune "Dixie Breakdown" from the album, "The Banjo".

Working together, Jane and Ian represented Australia at the World Expo in Shanghai in 2010. This reprised earlier tours of China in 2004, 2006 and 2008, which saw the release of Jane’s “Chinese Whispers” album – an innovative fusion of upbeat bluegrass, blues with haunting, traditional Chinese influences.

In a move to Sydney at the age of 21, Ian began working with Country and Western legend Slim Dusty until his death. Ian was a founding member of the multi-award winning band The Flying Emus. He is a renowned session player and has recorded and toured with luminary Australian musicians such as Paul Kelly, Keith Urban, Lee Kernaghan and Graham Connors.

Adam began his musical career in Fremantle where as a 14 year old he played with Ian in a band called The Busketeers before moving to play with the Fremantle-based The Jam Tarts and Nansing Quartet who enjoyed domestic, national and international acclaim at the Edinburgh Festival.

Like Ian, major musical influences include bluegrass, old time, western swing, jazz and blues
More recently Adam has utilised his extensive talents with a variety of stringed instruments – most notably mandolin and fiddle – to bring an added dimension to the recordings of artists such as Paul Kelly, Renee Geyer and Tim Rogers of You Am I.

Jane’s growing success can be traced to the release, in 2007 of her acclaimed “Chinese Whispers” album and her collaboration with Ian on 2010’s “Lonesome Road” album. Their industry reputations aside, Adam and Ian are probably best known to audiences for their places in the line-up of regional and national festival crowd favourites The Sensitive New Age Cowpersons.

Their new collaboration combines cool melodies, subtle rhythms and supremely polished performances that intertwine energetic playing with emotion-charged lyrics and a signature ability to entertain and delight audiences.

Jane Germain & The Lazy Boys’ musical credentials are impeccable, their industry and performing pedigree is undisputed, their show will leave audiences yelling for more!
