"To be free from Babylon is to free one's self from the things that hold you back. Babylon could be a thought, a habit, a person, or anything, which feels like a personal prison. Babylon is unique to each individual”.
~ Jane Macgizmo
Denieze Anderson (born outside of Mandeville, Jamaica, on September 19th) popularly known as Jane Macgizmo is a recording artiste, songwriter, producer & designer. Jane’s artistic passion was instilled at the age of seven by her parents who recognized the importance of the arts in her early life. They enrolled her in an after school art class, as well as piano lessons at Sybil’s Music School. Jane’s interest in music lead her to also explore the flute, trumpet, and percussions, while participating in the school’s orchestra. She also enrolled in voice lessons and performed regularly at her school’s annual music concert where she played the piano, sang & did choreographed dancing. As she grew, her musical skills became refined as she found peace in playing and composing pieces on the piano. Her enjoyment of composition sparked her curiosity in song writing & over the years Jane would download beats from the internet and write & records songs on them. This developed as she wrote and produced a few songs in her early teens.
She studied film production at Northern Caribbean University, and through her combination of interests and higher education she became an exceptional graphic designer & photographer. This significantly aided in her music career and developed her into the full artiste package.
Jane became an artiste by both natural calling and intention. It was a conversation with a friend who encouraged her to explore her creative abilities as a recording artiste when, at the time, she was simply interested in the pure enjoyment of music as a hobby. After careful consideration, she made the decision to launch herself, fully committed to the work, and her talents made way for the vision to manifest. This resulted in her release of “Babylon” w and came to be known as quite an anthem to her supporters. The song captures an enticing and defiant nature of Jane's music, unapologetically elected to fit sub genres coined, dubtronica or indie reggae. It was the release of this music video, depicted in the lush green scenery high in the mountains, again filmed, directed, and edited by Jane and Tricia that truly brought the message of the song to life and has been in regular rotation on BET SOUL. The notable record label, Zincfence Records, also released a dubmix of “Babylon” to bring a different spin on the track. Jane also released her anticipated follow up Dancehall Pop Track 'Too Late' which was also featured on BET SOUL and was in regular rotation on local radio stations.
Jane’s inventive persona is what propels her works, without boundaries; the fearless creative has a catalogue of music, stimulating visuals, and confident messages in preparation for the world to experience. Her fans can expect consistent evolution along with fusion of genres in the enjoyment of Jane’s art. Her desire to create timeless artworks generates drive and enthusiasm for mastering the skills in her career. Jane is currently working with a number of top-tier level producers and collaborators to ensure the vision, sound, and quality of her work is at a standard.
