Janet's new three-song EP on Loantaka Records, I Only See You, reflects her musical diversity and inspirations.
"I Can't Believe You Did That" is an airy lament that melds vintage pop sophistication with the Hawaiian lilt of her ukulele. "When I Hear (Beautiful Music)" displays the influence of her creative hero Brian Wilson – "He's the gold standard for me in terms of songwriting and production," says LaBelle – while her affection for modern French chanson informs her vocal delivery on the lovely number. The stark title track shows her affection for "minimalistic styles where you can make the most out of a little."
In her teen years, she started the punk-pop band Avery that signed an indie record deal when she was 16 and began touring nationally the following year. Her songs with the band won nationwide radio play and were used in a number of TV shows.
Since launching a solo career, Janet has played in bands like Jimmy Destri (of Blondie) and the Sound Grenade and New York psychedelic garage rockers Sharkmuffin as well as performing with jazz producer and songwriter JC Hopkins – known for his work with Norah Jones and Willie Nelson.
"Blessed with memorable songs and charisma to spare, the sky's the limit for Janet LaBelle," predicts Music Connection. As she concludes, "I love timeless themes and catchy melodies. I've always had a strong emotional response to music, so I try to let that inform what I write."
