Press

(Four Stars) “Tracy Bonham’s 1996 debut The Burdens of Being Upright turned Gen-X jitters and Berklee-honed chops into alt-rock gold. 20 years later, Bonham has re-imagined the album, pulling its songs apart and inviting a few pals (Belly’s Tanya Donnelly, Letters to Cleo’s Kay Hanley, the New Pornographers’ Kathryn Calder and more) to help put them back together. The radio hit “Mother Mother,” originally a frayed-nerves blast through early-adulthood angst, turns into a blues-tinged mosey through 2017’s magnified anxieties (“Trump is trending,” she laments); “Navy Bean,” originally a punky corker, stretches out its spindly lick over stomping drums; “The Real” gets a lift from rich harmonies (courtesy of Speedy Ortiz’s Sadie Dupuis) and swirling distortion. Modern Burdens is a lovingly penned postcard to Bonham’s past self, and a fascinating look at where she’s at right now.” —Rolling Stone

Press

“Tracy Bonham celebrates family life all over her fifth album—it’s full of gorgeous Americana twang, cut in Woodstock with guests like Langhorne Slim and Amy Helm. Nearly 20 years after “Mother Mother,” she testifies about the hopes and fears of being a rock & roll mama in tunes like “Black Tears” and “Luck.” The emotional peak is also the musical one: “This Here’s My Grandpa’s Guitar,” where she takes that guitar on a journey from her childhood roots (“I wish I could go back in time/To hear him play ‘Sweet Adeline’”), trying to catch an echo of his old-school sound long enough to pass it on to the next generation.” —Rob Sheffield, Rolling Stone

“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.” —Jason Greenspan, Baeble Music

“Janita mesmerizes . . . (She) remains an artist who sticks to her personal creative vision without having to rely too heavily on her outer appearance or what’s trendy. Her distinctive vocals are her stand-out asset, ranging between an edgier Feist and a softer Florence Welch.” —Paste Magazine

“This woman’s got the goods. Stardom awaits.” —Billboard Magazine

“This belle can belt and pen. Janita teems with vocal wattage and knows it.” —The Village Voice

“It probably shouldn’t 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 it’s hard to take your eyes off her.” —The Telegraph (UK)

“For some artists, it’s enough to be known by one name like Madonna, Prince, Sade, and Sting. Janita might be another name to add to the list.” —PopMatters
