about andy tubman
Andy Tubman, lead singer and songwriter of The Jane Doe's, was born in Philadelphia where his earliest vocal influence came from his father Lou, an opera singer. However his songwriting abilities were not realized until his college years while earning his degree in Music Therapy. During an internship at a state psychiatric hospital with schizophrenic patients, Andy began using songwriting to cope with the harsh realities he faced on a daily basis.
To hone his writing skills, he then moved to Nashville for three years where he performed, recorded and wrote with musicians including Gary Burnett, Daniel Tashien and Jill Sobule.
In 2001, Andy moved to Los Angeles, playing, recording and writing with such artists as Waylon Payne, Keith Gattis, Kaveh Rastegar and Joe Karnes.
The haunting track "Quiet Inside," co-written with Gattis, appears in The Jacket (Warner Films, February 2005), starring Adrien Brody and Keira Knightley, and produced by George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh.

"It’s late night reflective music, best mixed with a set of John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, Marvin Gaye and Erykah Badu. "Invisible Diamond" is one of the rarest of finds on the Internet or elsewhere. My guess is that it won’t be invisible for much longer...." - 9.3 / 10 [full review]
