Generally trying hard to make hard folk a genre.
Highly influenced by the female singer-songwriters of the late 90s/early aughts, Janice Lagata is a prolific (and occasionally petty) singer-songwriter. With a strong focus on lyrical content, she would describe her musical style as Hard Folk (is that a thing?) but you would probably just describe it as "Good. I like it. She's fun."
And she is fun. She's also very serious about using her words to change worlds (starting with yours, if you'll let her), in as many formats as possible including poetry and playwriting. So stay tuned, because she's always up to and/or getting into something.
