Northern Irish singer-songwriter Janet Devlin grew up outside the village of Gortin in County Tyrone, the only girl and youngest of four in her family. She thrived on a diet of watching Kerrang! TV and taking regular bus rides to local record stores in nearby Omagh.
"Fiery redhead who lives in a dragon-guarded castle surrounded by a boiling lake of lava! But don't let that cool you off. She's a loaded pistol who likes piña coladas and getting caught in the rain."
Fuelled by a love of bands like Foo Fighters and Red Hot Chilli Peppers and inspired by their songwriting, hidden away in her parents’ shed she taught herself to play instruments by ear and penned her own songs where nobody else could hear her sing. “I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember, as long as my mum remembers,” Janet says. “My gran recalls me writing songs when I was five. If there was a musical instrument around I would want to play it, but I am ‘sound shy’ so I’d go to the shed where there was a big pool table as I didn’t want my parents to hear what I was doing.”
2016 has started as busy as ever, with Janet traveling around the country to various studios for numerous co-writing sessions. Lyric books are overflowing, poems are being penned and exciting content for her second album Holy Water is starting to take shape. YouTube subscribers will be pleased to see even more videos being uploaded in the coming weeks and her fans can catch her live shows on StageIt throughout the year.
