"Organic and boundless, 'The Lay of The Land' sounds like music from a future time, as if sent back to the present day as a warning message."
Ditte Elly (Knight Knight)
"If Sandy Denny and Laurie Anderson had made an album together it might have sounded a bit like this."
ME LOST ME is the solo electronic music project of artist/musician Jayne Dent; a mesmeric mix of thudding rhythms, lush vocal drones and haunting melodies. Her live performances are atmospheric, dark and playful experiments in sound and storytelling, taking inspiration from a wide range of genres including folk music, electronica, pop, noise and ambient music. Jayne uses the voice as her main instrument alongside a concertina, looper and sampler to create her unique, genre-defying music.
Since self releasing her debut album 'Arcana' (2018) and follow up EP 'The Lay of The Land' (2019) she has been touring extensively and has recently performed at Northern Electric Festival, Kelburn Garden Party and The Manchester Folk Horror Festival.
"Whether reshaping old folk tales or showcasing equally gripping originals, Dent's experiments in sound have proved among the most powerful and beguiling our region has harboured in many a year; expertly coalescing her traditional background and radiant voice with a bewitching mine of loops, drones and ambient textures."
