My name is Jane Free and I am from planet earth! Jocelyn Jane is the name my parents gave me, I have been integrating this creative persona, Jane Free since October 2019. I was raised in OC and escaped when I was 16 y.o. up to the Mt Shasta area followed by 5-10 ‘nomadic years.’

Long Beach has cradled me in her loving arms since 2005, I started Sacred Roots Holistic Healing in 2012, followed by launching Panacea Holistic Institute - bodywork college in 2018 in the bluff heights.

I am a musician, film producer + emotional liberation advocate.

"I’ve always thought the beach was such a good metaphor for the city. It’s all locked in and there’s no waves and you can’t even swim in it. There’s only potential for it to be a real beach. It sounds like an insult, but it’s what I really like about it. I’ve seen so many mind-blowing shows in this city and there are so many talented musicians and creatives, but the scene remains very small and for the most part very kind and supportive. The scene itself always feels like a secret and makes it feel special, like it belongs to us. It’s a good safe space to test out new material before taking it to LA or on tour."

  • What’s your advice to people who want to help (make a difference), but don’t know where to begin?
  • Start by getting to know your own local community. Start at home, walk/roll/skate your block. What do you see? How do you feel? Are there any local community groups in your neighborhood? If so, find out what issues they’re focused on and see if their work is in alignment with your personal beliefs and go from there. You don’t have to start from scratch, there are many great groups doing good work who just need support.

    "My grandmother used to sign "Asi Fui" on photos of her youth and include what she was doing in that moment the photo was taken. It basically translates to "this is how I was/went" in spanish. The band name has become kind of a statement of how we just ride the wave of any given moment and every song becomes a timestamp. Asi Fui captures who we are in any freeze frame of our lives."
