Editor's note: Austin photographer Daniel Cavazos has built a reputation on creating evocative and interesting portraits of the people that help make up the cultural fabric of our city. For this piece, he looks at four Austin musicians who are making it big.
Like many singer songwriters, Jana Horn started as a solo artist. She began writing songs on a guitar handed down to her by her father and was immediately drawn to the intimate and introspective components of folk music, particularly the music of Leonard Cohen. Using the master wordsmith as her inspiration, Horn began writing her own songs. After performing under her name for several years as a solo artist, Horn recruited the help of local musicians Paul Price and Jason Baczynski to flesh out her sound. The result was Reservations, a more dynamic version of what Horn had been working on over the last several years.
In April of 2013, the band released their self-titled EP, Reservations, a dreamy six-song adventure through the mind of Horn. Her sound has been described as poetry set to music and, while her songs are folk at the core, Reservations leans more towards Mazzy Star than Leonard Cohen.
The band is currently in the studio recording their debut LP due out sometime in the next few months.
