The buzz and anticipation surrounding Brooklyn-based artist Janita (pronounced YA-nee-tuh) is as unsurprising as it is palpable. Standing room only concerts and sold out festivals have cemented her reputation as an electrifying singer-songwriter, and as an artist whose breakthrough moment has arrived.
"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," declares the The Telegraph (UK).
"This new album feels like the fulfilling of a promise I've been making to myself, and to my fans. It's an album about arriving, joyfully, in this brave new world and not turning away, and not turning back," says a smiling Janita. "I wanted to make a record that was powerfully melodic and lush, but with the emotional availability and rawness of my shows. Intentionally unrefined, and unreserved."
That lack of reservation is also found in the glowing praise that is already heralding the album's arrival. PopMatters writes, "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."
Janita reflects on the trajectory that's led her to this worthy tipping point with a tone that rings like a signature chord throughout her new record. A tone that mixes grace with defiance, more focused on the path ahead than the path behind. "I always knew––and I think my fans always knew––that this moment was possible. It was coming, and just ahead of us. A moment we could forge, and enjoy, together. Now that it's here, I couldn't be more excited––or more ready."
Janita's new album, Didn't You, My Dear?,released worldwide March 31st, 2015 on ECR Music Group.Produced, recorded, and mixed by Blake Morgan in New York City.
