Formed back in 2018 Easy Jane — Charles Debras and Yara Nammour — are currently split between Belgium and Lebanon.

Recorded at Beirut‘s Tunefork Studios, Easy Jane’s sophomore album Play, sees the band further experimenting and refining their approach while collaborating with a talented collection of local musicians and producers.
