“Janita’s expressive yet soulful performances prove (even) more beautiful than her silhouette.”
—All Music Guide
Fresh on the heels of the commercial and critical successes of her albums I’ll Be Fine, Seasons Of Life, and Haunted, Janita now finds herself poised for an exciting and unprecedented 2014—a year that will see her release a new album, two new singles, a major video, and embark on U.S. and European tours.
Billboard Magazine writes, “This woman’s got the goods. Stardom awaits.” The UK Telegraph adds, “She not only writes beautifully powerful songs, but sings with such passion and conviction that it’s hard to take your eyes off her.”
In addition to scoring two Top-40 hits on the U.S. Charts and gaining international critical acclaim, the Brooklyn-based artist has been performing constantly to sold-out houses and festivals, both in the U.S. and overseas. The 2010 release of her album Haunted cemented her reputation as both an electrifying singer-songwriter, and as an artist who has truly come into her own: “This belle can belt and pen. Janita teems with vocal wattage and knows it,” writes The Village Voice.
This reputation and the acclaim for her previous albums has already fueled the anticipation for her new release—one that Janita is decidedly eager for her fans to hear. “I feel this new album fulfills a promise I made to my fans, and to myself. To grow, to build on what I’ve done with something that would be powerful, and beautiful. It’s the most melodic and lush record I’ve ever made. But it also has an emotional and musical rawness to it that’s unrefined, unreserved. I love that combination. I’ve never felt so excited about an album I’ve made before, or felt so good. As we put the final touches on it, I can see and hear the whole thing for the first time. And I can’t wait for people to hear it, too.”
Stay tuned for more news about Janita’s new album, which will be released worldwide in 2014 on ECR Music Group.
