    Lessons To Learn
Janet May is an artist and activist from the Lower East Side, Manhattan, whose powerful songs tackle subject matter ranging from the power of the feminine to the environment and mass incarceration.
The depth and authenticity of her work has led to national political campaigns and news channels asking to use the music in their promotional videos and at rallies, as well as forming an ongoing relationship with the legendary NYC protest graffiti artist responsible for developing the ‘SAMO’ tag with Jean Michel-Basquiat; Al Diaz.
Janet also runs a charity helping LGBTQI refugees in Tijuana stuck at the US border. She is a member of countless protest organisations and her involvement and weekly attendance at protests across the US has resulted in her working closely and developing a series of music, activism and performance videos with protest photographer Pete Voelker (New York Times, VICE).
