“This woman’s got the goods.”
—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)

Press

“Jill Sobule can claim her place among the stellar New York singer-songwriters of the last decade. Topical, funny and more than a little poignant . . . grown-up music for an adolescent age.”
—New York Times

“Vocally gifted and lyrically witty . . . a peerless satirist.”
—People Magazine

“A feisty post-punk feminist whose work brings to mind a cross between Liz Phair and Gertrude Stein.”
—The New Yorker

What the President Said (Single)

David Poe - "What the President Said" - Single Cover - ECR Music Group

Lyrics

Don’t let him
Don’t let him get away with it

Did you hear what the president said?
Don’t let him get away with it.

Did you hear the president lie?
Don’t let him get away with it.

Show me what democracy looks like
This is what democracy looks like

Press

“It is hard to deny the expert craftsmanship of Mr. Poe’s songwriting and producing. In just over two minutes, Poe manages to create an amalgam of strong political sentiment and soul-stirring musical elements in a way that only an adept songwriter can. He seamlessly weaves in the layers of the handclaps and protest cries from the Women’s March, which magnify the song’s timeliness and relevance.”
—PASTE Magazine

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
