Right after her first piano lesson at the age of 10 years, Jane Bogaert wrote into her school satchel: “Music is my life”. And until today, music is still the most important thing to her. The former Miss Switzerland actually now has really reached another dimension with the new album “Fifth Dimension”.
This was already obvious whilst being educated at the conservatoire in Biel and the school of musicals in Munich where she took singing lessons. Her voice has matured during a couple of first tries as a solo singer and back-up jobs for A-Ha, Thin Lizzy, Al Jarreau, David Hasselhoff, Toto Cutugno, Claudia Jung, Roland Kaiser or Uwe Ochsenknecht. As a result, she later worked for Al Bano & Romina Power and as a result, in the end took over Romina’s parts completely.
At the change of the millennium, Jane represented Switzerland at the Eurosong Festival in Stockholm, worked as singer and dancer with DJ Bobo and as a lecturer for ‘pop vocal performances’ at the University of Arts in Berne, Switzerland.
Even more inspired and infected, Jane together with Robert Papst (Dominoe) and Guenther Skitschak (Dominoe) wrote the songs for “Fifth Dimension” and engaged a couple of guests such as Jeff Scott Soto (W.E.T., Journey, Talisman, Malmsteen), Joe Lynn Turner (Deep Purple, Rainbow, Hughes-Turner Project), John „Rhino“ Edwards (Status Quo), Matt Beck (Rod Stewart) and Charlie Morgan (Elton John) to help her with the realization of the record.
These well known names and the great production job by Robert Papst helped Jane a lot to get herself in top form as well. The result is a record with obvious roots coming from the 80’s Rock music, which nevertheless creates an immense closeness, intensity and tension force – an album without deadlocked facets and shades.
