Jana Horn: Optimism [No Quarter]

Optimism is the debut album from Jana Horn, a Texan musician who grew up in a small town and found herself entranced by Christian screamo shows in Dallas as a young person. She started her serious undertaking of songwriting during her time as a college student in Austin, and after nearing completion of another version of a first album, she scrapped it in favor of the gentle and understated songs that she delivers on Optimism.

Between the two projects, the English pop artist joined Pet Shop Boys for the collaborative single “Dreamland.” Alexander announced Night Call in September, sharing “Crave” ahead of “Sweet Talker” and “Sooner or Later.”
