voice is hauntingly beautiful and delightfully rich. Her music is as multi-faceted as it is intelligent, incorporating flecks of R&B, jazz, indie folk and alternative. And more than anything, it's extremely digestible without sacrificing depth, a very rare characteristic.
The buzz surrounding her forthcoming album, Didn't You My Dear
, is electric, and with good reason - major players are singing Janita's praise and gushing with positivity about this talented artist. The Telegraph
(UK) raves, "It probably shouldnt be allowed for someone as talented as singer-songwriter Janita to also be goddess beautiful. She not only writes beautifully powerful songs, but sings with such passion and conviction that its hard to take your eyes off her." Even Billboard
is on the train, exclaiming, "This woman's got the goods. Stardom awaits.
And perhaps the most pleasantly confounding aspect of Janita's music is the intensity that radiates from her recorded material. Sometimes it's hard to make a raw connection with an artist through headphones, but that's certainly not the case here. "Who's Gonna Tell The Wolf She's Not A Dog," for example, teems with a vulnerability and a festering anger that lurks just below the surface, ready to break through at any moment. This wasn't an accident, either - "I wanted to make a record that was powerfully melodic and lush, but with the emotional availability and rawness of my shows. Intentionally unrefined, and unreserved," confesses Janita.
Didn't You My Dear
is a ten-track collection of musical brilliance. Introspective, sonically refreshing, and rife with homage to classic american styles of music, this album beckons for a deep, active listen. Pick up your copy March 31st on iTunes
via ECR Music Group
