Online PR News – 26-June-2013 – New York – Singer/storyteller and solo artist, Janet Panic, has been working hard to get her voice heard, and it's paying off. You'll be seeing and hearing more from her soon.
Dateline: Vancouver, BC, Canada, Friday, June 14, 2013. Janet Panic has certainly had her share of success in the past few years. In 2009, she was a featured performer at the 16th Annual National Aboriginal Achievement Awards. She appeared at the Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards in 2010. She was the musical guest on the APTN TV show, "Nehiyawetan," airing in 2011.
She has opened for Ani DeFranco at the Utopia Music Festival in Edmonton, Carole Pope at the Media Club in Vancouver and Mary Gauthier at the Pembina River Nights Festival. She was nominated for Best Aboriginal Songwriter at the Canadian Folk Music Awards in 2011. She was also nominated for Best Folk/Acoustic CD at the 2012 Aboriginal People's Choice Music Awards, which she won, and this year she was nominated for a Juno award.
Her song, "I Miss My Sweet Embrace" (co-written by the comedian, Richard Lett) was awarded a MuchFACT grant. The video for the song was directed by none other than Neill Blomkamp (District 9). She has recorded and released and handful of albums in the past two decades and now she has a brand new album to promote.
Janet is a solo artist. She plays guitar, percussion and sings during her performances and also performs with a full 4-piece band. She whispers politics in the guise of poetry and is inspired lyrically by life, love and the ongoing pursuit of fun and adventure. Musically, she is influenced by Johnny Cash, Leonard Cohen, U2, Mary Gauthier and Cowboy Junkies. The Vancouver Sun has called her a "female cross between Lou Reed and Leonard Cohen."
Janet would like to continue her string of accomplishments and hopes to break into US and European markets. She's also hoping to work with management and an agent soon to help alleviate the increasing workload that her past success has brought her. Most importantly, she wants people to hear her new album. The 11 tracks of "Most of What Follows is True" combine a mix of musical styles, wit and light humor that will appeal to any fan of rock, folk and pop music.
