Me Lost Me

Me Lost Me delights in experimenting with songwriting and storytelling, creating a beguiling mix of soaring vocals and atmospheric electronics that playfully push the boundaries of genre. The Project of Newcastle-based artist Jayne Dent who takes influence from folk, art pop, noise, ambient and improvised music, Me Lost Me has transformed since 2017 from a purely solo endeavor to an expanded group involving a range of collaborators including acclaimed North-East jazz musicians Faye MacCalman and John Pope.
Me Lost Me‘s music has been described in The Guardian as “stripping folk back to its bones while letting its future echoes bleed out”, and with her prolific writing and extensive touring schedule around the UK DIY scene, her unique sound has won much support across the musical spectrum.
Dent has notably performed live for BBC Radio 3’s After Dark Festival and as part of the 2022 BBC Proms alongside Spell Songs, Royal Northern Sinfonia and the Voices of the Rivers Edge Choir. She received the prestigious Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award for Composers and was 2020-2021 Artist in Residence at Sage Gateshead.With Me Lost Me’s third full-length album ‘RPG’, released in July 2023 on Upset the Rhythm, she has expanded her sound palette even further, and does a deep dive into the question of what it means to make contemporary folk music. RPG presents the idea of songwriting as a role-playing game, described by the Quietus as “a celebration of the essentially human playfulness of gaming, storytelling and songs”, and invites the listener in to explore this strange new world. Me Lost Me presents sound reaching in opposite directions, straddling time towards the archaic and timeless traditions of folktales, and towards the possible and potential futures of pastoral Britain and the world at large. Part speculation, part reminiscence, what results on the new album RPG is music that sounds ultimately displaced and yet omnipresent, adjacent to a hapless Vonnegut hero whose life is scattered throughout time and history, but full of wonder and curiosity rather than fear.

“RPG casts a powerful spell but finds magic in the power of imagination rather than the supernatural. It is a celebration of the essentially human playfulness of gaming, storytelling and songs” – The Quietus

“an intoxicating mix of folk and electronics, like coming across a bank of Moogs in a forest clearing where wood nymphs and faeries are operating patch bays and tweaking oscillators.” – Joyzine

“Demanding, contemporary folk music”  ☆☆☆☆☆ – Rock n Reel

“Sometimes haunting, sometimes devastating; always brilliant…Inspired by unreal worlds of paintings and video games, RPG succeeds in concurrently existing as the real and imaginary world, full of tradition, wonder and curiosity. Mesmerising neo-synth storytelling from an omnipotent oracle.” – NARC Magazine
