“This woman’s got the goods. Stardom awaits.”
“An artist capable of producing music of great beauty and unsettling power.”
“She sings with such passion and conviction that it’s hard to take your eyes off her.”

On the heels of nearly 50,000 miles of touring over the past 18 months, the buzz and anticipation surrounding New York-based artist Janita (pronounced YA-nee-tuh) is as unsurprising as it is palpable. Standing-room-only concerts and sold-out headlining dates in both the United States and Europe have cemented her reputation as an electrifying artist and performer whose breakthrough moment has arrived.
Now, in addition to her ongoing tour schedule, she’s set to launch her own artist-in-residence concert series in New York, at famed Lower East Side music haunt Arlene’s Grocery. In this new series, Janita will be debuting new songs as well as new collaborations with special guests—a veritable who’s who of the New York music scene—while also performing fan favorites from her albums Seasons of Life, Haunted, and Didn’t You, My Dear?.
Critical acclaim fused with commercial success may be rare in the music world, but this happy combination remains Janita’s norm: “Janita mesmerizes…her distinctive vocals are her stand-out asset, ranging between an edgier Feist and a softer Florence Welch,” declares Paste Magazine. Baeble Music adds, “Combining the vocal intensity of Bat for Lashes’ Natasha Khan with the turbulent rock edge of St. Vincent, Janita continues to mark herself as an artist capable of producing music of great beauty and unsettling power.”
Janita continues to promote the Deluxe Edition release of her recent breakthrough album, Didn’t You, My Dear?, having just returned from a second major tour of the United Kingdom. She’s now set for a string of East Coast dates in the U.S. in the fall of 2017, co-headlining with acclaimed singer-songwriter Jeff Taylor.
