Jana Hunter: 'Feow!'

Jana Hunter launches Feow!

Jana Hunter may have left Texas for the balmy shores of Baltimore, but her heart (and ears) are still here. She recently launched a label, Feow! Records, along with friends/musicians Matthew Brownlie and Arthur Bates, who are in Houston bands Bring Back the Guns and Wicked Poseur, respectively. Upcoming releases include singer-songwriter Deer Tick's War Elephant September 2 and Bring Back the Guns' Dry Futures October 4.

"My main motivation was to get the Deer Tick and Wicked Poseur records out into the public," Hunter says. "Right now, things are a little tricky since I moved. As things progress, we'll see where it goes, but I think Matt at least is in it for the long haul and wants to focus mostly on Houston bands. I'd like to stick to things I'm most excited about, no matter where they make their home, and eventually expand into print and other media. I'm not sure whether or not these interests will keep us on the same page or lead us in different directions."

In the meantime, Hunter gears up for a fall tour with old friend Devendra Banhart, which hits La Zona Rosa October 7.
