Jen Lane - 2000 Miles

Inspired by current events and the holiday season, Jen Lane recruited producer and multi-instrumentalist, John MacArthur Ellis, to put her own spin on the Pretenders classic "2000 Miles".


"I think most people think this song is about the distance between two lovers over the holidays. For me, I felt a sense that it was about a father going off to war whose family hopefully anticipated his return at Christmas time. With war sadly still playing such a huge role in the headlines, I was compelled to cover it. The truth is however, that this song was written for the Pretenders' original guitar player, James Honeyman-Scott, who passed away the year before the song was released. Whatever it means to you, I hope it brings some holiday spirit and gratitude into your hearts as it did for me!"... Jen Lane

Saskatoon’s Jen Lane is a veteran singer-songwriter and recording artist. Her most recent release, “This Life of Mine”, is a strong statement by an artist who is able to honestly, and with great passion and depth, sing about the ups and downs of life – and finds Jen in the exact place that she has always meant to be; at the very heart of where roots, folk, and country music harmoniously intertwine.

Lane toured from coast to coast numerous times to promote “This Life of Mine”, which charted on National College Radio for over 12 weeks, including reaching #1 on the Earshot Folk/Roots chart. It also garnered substantial radio play on CBC and Satellite Radio, and she performed on dozens of television shows across the country.

Releasing her first CD, “Sleepless” at just 16 years old, Lane garnered a lot of attention on the Canadian music scene, and was nominated for “Outstanding Independent Album” at the Prairie Music Awards. Her self-titled 2006 album and the 2010 follow-up, “For The Night”, were both nominated for Western Canadian Music Awards.
