“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
