"If ever a sound could feel near and far, Ruben Montane have managed to span the distance with an old steel string, a voice like a broken trail, and songs that cry to be heard . . This is truly extraordinary songwriting. The kind you're secretly always panning for . . "

Biography

It’s been a long time coming..
From the first songs written behind the hum of a plastics factory machine somewhere in the middle east. To an overnight train ride from upstate New York on her way to the bywaters of Lousiana. Where, called by the sounds of the south, jaye Kranz returned to songwriting, singing her first songs over the freight tracks to an empty wharf shed..

But it wasn’t until returning to her hometown of Melbourne, Australia that the songs found a place to rest in the duo Ruben Montane.

Ruben Montane are Jaye Kranz and Virginia Bott.
They are currently recording their debut album due for release late 2010 with Austin, Texas-based producer Craig Ross (Patty Griffin, Lisa Germano, Shearwater).
The lamps are lit..
The tubes are warm..
One song at a time..

Lyrics

The Woods

Written By: Jaye Kranz

The Woods

v1
If you will not go where the air is thin
I know it chills you to go
It chills you

And if the falling snow come further in
I know it chills you to go
It chills you

Chorus 1
And I will wake you in the season
I will whisper while you sleep
There’s nothing out there in the woods
There’s nothing out there on the water

v2
And though you will go where the ledge is thin
You say it begs you to stay
It begs you

and though the way close in close in
you say it begs you to stay
it begs you

Chorus 2
And I will walk you through the tress
Walk you by the shore
There’s nothing out there in the woods
There’s nothing out there on the water

These days are still long
These days are still long

Bridge
Out in the woods It’s never late, never late
Never late

If the falling snow come further in
I know it chills you to go
It chills you
