Jana Hunter is from Texas, the fifth of nine children. She played classical music throughout her youth, but that doesn’t really explain why she writes such haunting songs. Hunter is one of those rare artists whose craft does its work on listeners before they even notice. 
Deceptively simple, clear and concise, these songs surround and envelop, seeping into the skin until they are a part of you. Blank Unstaring Heirs of Doom is a collection of songs written over the period of a decade. The album is a thirteen-song “best of,” recorded on four-tracks, two-tracks and computers, mostly in Texas and mostly alone. 
 
Featured on the Devendra Banhart-curated, Arthur produced CD Golden Apples of the Sun and sharing a recent split vinyl-only release on Troubleman with him, Jana Hunter’s album is the initial release on the Gnomonsong imprint, a spectacular new label begun by Revolver USA, Devendra Banhart and Vetiver’s Andy Cabic. 
 
“Jana’s frail, reedy voice and delicate finger picking make her sound like a young man lost in a peat bog and plucking toads from toadstools to see whether they’ll spill their secrets.” - Boston Phoenix 
 
“Hunter’s songs are so honest, yearning and intimate, you’d be forgiven in thinking that you’re eavesdropping on someone’s private thoughts.” - Eric Boucher, Artvoice
