Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2014-06-10Original represents Janiva's departure from the big record labels to bring to life an Original CD that combines eleven new tracks, seven penned by Janiva. This CD continues Janiva's path from a straight blues singer into the worlds of Soul, R&B, Popular as well as the Blues. The songs found here are very personal dealing with divorce, loss and hardship but end with the total faith that no matter what happens, this strong women can climb any mountain and stand strong. Janiva continues to grow a real warmth to her vocals, although more than capable of belting out high powered emotional track, Janiva brings the listener into her world with the affection and at times real tenderness contained within. Dan Navarro, best known as 1/2 of Lowen & Navarro adds vocals to the track "With Love". West Michigan's Jim Alfredson also continues to grow and add to the sounds of Janiva's band with his organ, piano and backing vocals. This is one Original that should not be missed.
