A native of Richmond Virginia, Janet divides her time between Europe and the United States.  When not on tour Janet can usually be found writing or in the studio; her latest CD recorded in Paris France in 2012 will be released in the United States and Europe summer/fall 2013. This marks Janet’s first 100% blues rock recording and features Texas guitar slinger Neal Black at the production reins. The recording entitled “Say it to my Face” will be released domestically and in Europe summer of this year. 

Her recording schedule does not slow down in 2013. First quarter finds her in the studio recording a collection of acoustic blues and originals produced by Dan Doyle for Gene Rosenthal’s Adelphi Records; to be released by the label in the summer of 2013. Janet plans to tour in support of both releases; look for full band tours and scaled down acoustic gigs in 2013.

Her 2010 CD “Passage” was a huge success in Europe; receiving airplay in more than 12 different countries in Europe, the United Kingdom and Scandinavia. She’s earned high praise from the European musical press; reviews were overwhelmingly positive. Janet’s “Live on Mulberry Street” was recorded at a house concert in her hometown of Richmond and is available digitally on CD Baby; and i-Tunes; this is a must collector’s item. Janet’s “Live on Mulberry Street” trio is currently doing gigs in the mid-Atlantic.

Her guitar style took shape at an early age; a direct result of her early influences; from Blue Grass flat-picking to electric rock & roll and blues.

A bright new world opened up for her when she began listening to Led Zeppelin and Jimmy Page’s use of open tunings; Janet’s acoustic sound today is due in large part to her love of open tunings of which she is a master. After a 2011 summer tour in France with producer/guitarist Neal Black she was encouraged by Neal to step into the spotlight and showcase her lead guitar playing as well as her acoustic and slide work.

A live Janet performance should not be missed; it’s all there for the price of a ticket; hypnotic acoustic and lead guitar work, blazing slide guitar and killer vocals.
