Hey there,

I hope you are enjoying my new website!
I am thrilled
a) about spring!
b) about signing a record deal with NY label Engine Company Records this Monday, April 12th.
This means I will finally be releasing my new album Haunted worldwide on July 27th, 2010!

What a journey making this album has been! I have lived through the hardest years of my life while completing this record… which I’m sure can be heard in the darker tone of the music overall, compared to my earlier work. I have moved into more alternative territory and feel at home there musically. Now I can express an aggressive side that I’ve always had within.
I hope that my old listeners will grow with me as I grow into my own. In addition to that, I hope to find many more listeners around the world!

In a lot of ways I now feel stronger than ever and my music has no choice but to express it.
I suppose it is not just a cliche that most growth happens during adversity…
You’ll be hearing a lot of my personal struggles on Haunted, and within the songs I write in the future. I am the type to cope with life’s injustices, tough realisations, hate and disappointments by putting them into my music. Quite literally even…. Yet I can’t help it that hope always glimmers on the bottom of it all. It is the way I’m wired, thank God. Maybe one day it will rise to the top?

Life continues to feel just a wee bit scary to me… but I have decided that that will not stop me from boldly going after my dreams. I hope you will join me on this journey. Feel free to write to me your comments and thoughts. I answer as much as I can. I will also be updating this site weekly, so keep checking in here and there…

I wish you love and success in this year! Let’s keep growing and evolving. We are changing whether we like it or not, so we might as well make the best of it!

Love,

Janita
