Expecting Another Baby!

 

We are so excited to be bringing another beautiful child into our lives to love and cherish just like our other 3 children.  They are my world and my life.  

I've been plagued with all the usual pains and discomforts of pregnancy, so that has kept me further off the stage.  But, I'm just so thankful that the baby and I are healthy, so that's all that matters.  I've just begun the second trimester and that's when in the past pregnancies that I started to feel alive again :-) ...so, I'm hoping to hit the stage soon.  

I miss singing and performing for you all!!  Thanks for sticking with me and stay in touch on my mailing list or social media, so I can keep you updated!

 

Love!!! XOXO

Janeen

 

Taking Time Off

 

I've been taking time off from live shows to spend time with my family.  Music will always be my passion, but my kids will always be my heart and soul and they come first. I've been feeling a strong pull to take time off these past few months and I don't know when I'll feel otherwise. I'm still open to house concerts once in awhile or anything that I don't have to do all the setting up and promoting. 

 

There are a few record releases on the horizon!  So stay tuned for that!  In the meantime, connect with me on social media and you'll be 'in the know' when I will hit the stage again!

 

New Single - Duet with UK Artist, Scott Cowie

 

I'm so excited for this new release with f.Boo Music!  It's a duet with UK artist, Scott Cowie.  Scott and I met at an open mic in San Francisco during his first visit to the US.  He asked to borrow my guitar and when he got on stage, I was blown away!  That summer we did a short tour in the Bay Area and L.A. and recorded a single together with producer Keven Brennan of f.Boo Music!

If you like a funky groove with pop/folk sensibilities, then you will LOVE this song!!  Check it out here!  There's also a free digital booklet here.

 

New Single - 'I'm On My Way' - Available Now!

 

Get the back story and a FREE download here!!

 

New Single - Releasing January 31, 2015!

 

I've JUST listened to the new single - a song written at Girls's Camp while I was the Music Director.  I took a song that I knew would be special if the girls contributed to the lyrics...took it to camp with me and low and behold, it happened!  Then my producer, Keven Brennan, loved the song!  I recorded it with him and then the girls came over to my house and we recorded their lovely voices!

 I couldn't be MORE HAPPY with it!!!!  I love it so much!!  It made me ball!!!  I can't even express what it feels like to hear something that I could only hear as an echo in the back of my mind when I started writing it and then now hear it come to life, feels like a miracle!!

 Hear it yourself this Saturday, January 31st!  Link will be posted on that day, so stay tuned.  And get this!....it's a FREE download!!

Produced by Keven Brennan with f.Boo! Music.

 

MOVING to Grass Valley, CA!

 

On a bit of a hiatus with playing shows right now during the chaos of moving...but, stay tuned bay area...it's not over!

It's bittersweet cause we will miss our friends in the bay area, but we are excited for a new adventure.  We are moving to our dream house in a dream area!  And, it's a bonus that it's not too far from the bay area...about 2 1/2 hour drive, so I'm keeping my band together and planning on doing shows regularly in the bay area as well as our new surrounding cities....like Sacramento, Roseville, Auburn and of course our new home town, Grass Valley and Nevada City!

I'll post pictures soon, it's so amazingly beautiful there...I thought my heart was going to burst when I first saw the area!  I can't believe I'm going to be waking up to that beauty everyday!!

Awesome things on the horizon...there is the single with UK artist, Scott Cowie, "What's For You"; the single with the Young Women that I served as the Camp Director for their summer camp last July, "I'm On My Way"; the single with Harley Jay, "The Lucky Ones"; the Jason Mraz cover with The Collective; and of course the new EP with producer, Keven Brennan!  Plus another exciting project that is the works!  So, I'll keep you posted with all of this!

Thank you all for being beautiful people.  I love all your comments on facebook and twitter, please keep 'em coming!

New EP, 'Bird In A Cage' Coming July 12, 2014

 

So excited to announce a new EP is coming to your ears July 12th!! I'll post the link in this event page for you to get your digital copy on July 12, 2014. 9am PDT.

A three song co-write EP with producer, Cliff Goldmacher.

Starting with a quirky, fun duet with Cliff Goldmacher, 'Go To Bed' is about the laughable struggles of how a couple with young kids try to keep the spark alive. 'Bird in a Cage' is a thoughtful reveal into the spirit of an artist.  We don't chose our dreams and passions, they are a part of us. Lastly 'Find A Way To Breathe' is a song of longing... simply sexy.

Check out http://www.cliffgoldmacher.com/ to see why I'm so excited to have this EP with him! His songwriting credits include; Spencer Day andJane Monheit. Producer credits include; Kesha.

 

 

New Song! Co-Written with Cliff Goldmacher Coming Soon

 

Yesterday I had an amazing co-writing experience.  I joined songwriter and producer, Cliff Goldmacher at his studio in Sonoma, CA.  

In just a few short hours, a song was written and then recorded...just like that!  I've never experienced that before.  All it took was a short conversation and when asked some questions about myself...I mentioned that, for me not singing would feel like I was putting a bird in a cage.  Cliff, being the gifted songwriter that he is, said there's a song there....and "Bird In a Cage" was born.  The best way to describe the experience is that it felt like he pulled this song right out of my soul.  I can't wait for the world to hear this beautiful song!

I will let you know when it's available, in the meantime....check out Cliff Goldmacher's website and hear all the amazing songs he has written and co-written and check out his thoroughly impressive bio as he has been in the music business for over 20 years.  Cliff has recorded, played on and produced thousands of recordings for major and independent publishers, record labels, up and coming songwriters and Grammy winners.

I told him to turn around for a picture and here he is...is that a winning smile or what!?

Recorded New Single With UK Artist, Scott Cowie

 

I had such a great time touring with Scott Cowie!  He's such an amazing artist, if you haven't checked out his music yet...head over to scottcowie.com 

We spent an afternoon at f. Boo Studio in LA with producer, Keven Brennan and recorded a song we wrote together.  It is now in post-production and I will let you know asap when it's available.  Can't wait for you to hear it!!!

Check out the photo album on facebook from the tour. Also check out videos from the tour on my youtube channel.

 

Joining UK Artist, Scott Cowie On His 1st American Tour

 

I'm so excited to join the amazingly entertaining, Scott Cowie from Scotland on his first tour in the US!  He just kicked off his tour in the UK and will be coming my way the end of July.  I will post the dates soon....for now, check out Scott Cowie at scottcowie.com - check out his videos and you'll see why I'm so excited!

How I met Scott..... it was total fate....at the last min I decided to go to an 'open mic' at The Hotel Utah in San Francisco.  After I signed up, a guy with a Scottish accent asks me if he can borrow my guitar....he was very nice and charming, so I said 'sure!' :-)  Then his turn came to go up....my jaw dropped as at the first note it was clear this guy was an extremely talented musician, then he started singing and I was even more impressed.  But, what I think impressed me the most was that here was this amazing musician, completely entertaining the crowd, totally comfortable up there and cracking everyone up with his song 'Crack Head Whore'.....but with all that rock-stardom that he was showing the audience, he's so down-to-earth and just an all around cool person with absolutely no ego.....that's what impressed me the most.

The reason I say it was fate....he just so happened to be at this open mic because someone told him he should while he was in town....he was in town playing a party for the guy who invented the cassette tape because The Stone Roses weren't available and they recommended Scott for the party!  So, this was just a random thing that both of us happened to be at this open mic...I had never been there before and decided to at the last min, thinking originally I was going to go somewhere else that night.

So, now all because I went to an open mic at The Hotel Utah, I am going to join one of the most amazing artists I have had the pleasure to see live...on his 1st American tour!  Holy crap, I'm excited....ok, I'm done, now go check out his videos...you'll see what I mean...

First Press Reviews For 'Right In Front Of Me' - The New CD

 

Thank you so much to Danielle Crowe from Bella Online Emerging Music and Morley Seaver from Anti-music for the first press reviews on my new EP, "Right In Front Of Me".  The reviews couldn't be more wonderful!

Danielle says, "The singer-songwriter’s most recent EP "Right In Front Of Me" is simply excellent and shows off several different musical styles of the pop/rock genre. It is haunting, melodic rock at its finest."

For more from her article, click here.


Morley says, "Janeen has the ability to draw you closer to the speakers so you really concentrate on her words. In addition, she can also exude a sultry vocal coating that enables you to get lost in the moment......her songs leave an impression that she carefully gave her all to each track."

Video for 'Some Rhyme Some Reason' - CD Recorded in India with Tushar Parte

 

Over 4 years ago, I took the opportunity of a life-time and flew to Bombay, India to record an album with Bollywood musician, Tushar Parte at his request.  I feel very blessed to have had this experience....the end result of this fateful collaboration (Tushar found me online) is 'Some Rhyme Some Reason' which was recorded on analog tape in 2 1/2 weeks, with a full band recording live in the studio.

We recorded 10 songs in that short time.  6 of them written by Tushar with lyrics I wrote and 4 of them songs that I wrote which will release at a later date.  This 6 song CD is nothing short of magic....it has a worldly feel like no other piece of music before, it is truly unique, but still catches you reminiscing as if you have heard it before, like from a dream or another life.

Here is the title track 'Some Rhyme Some Reason' set to a video that I created from my personal footage and photos that I took while experiencing Bombay, the studio we recorded in, and Pune a village about 2 hours North of Bombay...technically known as Mumbai.

The CD will release next month, February 2013....this is just a taste of what you will enjoy when the whole CD is available to your ears!

Pictures of Friday's Show at the Historic 23 Club

 
It was so much fun playing at 23 Club last Friday night! To be able to be on the same stage that was once graced by legends such as Hank Williams, Jerry Lee Lewis and 'The Man in Black'...Johnny Cash! I played with Cristian Hernandez who was on an upright bass and Ben Badura on trumpet. It was the first time just the 3 of us and it was awesome mixing it up like that and venturing into my jazzier side. :-) We will definitely do it again. Check out the pictures on the photo page of this site.

Another New Moon (Twilight) video made with my song 'Fallen'

 
This is so cool, I'm loving it! Thank you for making this video, it looks so awesome! I didn't realize just how much the song fit the story til I saw this video! There's a comment posted by the person who made it that I wanted to share, it's really cool! Here it is: This is how I intended it to come across with the lyrics- Why can't you see, I'm on my knees and I'm crawling on the ground for you? (on the ground in the forest after Edward leaves) seperate minds can be one of a kind and now it's the only truth (she always haunted by him and hears his voice in her head) given time it will all come together in this constant plea forever- it was in my grasp, but its fallen too fast (hope for someday Edward coming back, but in so much pain that he left) share your empathy for my tragedy and maybe I can get up off the floor (finding friendship with Jacob) but it seems to easy to cause insanity so now watch I'll cause some more (still haunted by Edward in her head, going crazy and riding motorcycles and jumping off a cliff) -then in the last chorus, given time it will all come together (she and Edward are back together) then the perspective changes from Bella losing Edward to Jacob losing Bella and you know from the books that it goes back and forth from Bella's perspective to Jacob's a couple of times - so, fans of the book probably already picked up on this intention, but just in case :) but, cool huh? perfect!!!
 

Buzz about New Moon Soundtrack (Twilight Saga)

 
I just wanted to write and say thank you to the people who are buzzing about wanting my song "Fallen" on the New Moon soundtrack. I'm a HUGE fan of the Twilight series, I read every book before the movie came out!! :-) I never thought that anyone would think that any of my songs would be right for the series, but I'm really excited to think that they could be!! I would LOVE to be a part of any Twilight movie soundtrack! I talked to my label about it and they are going to contact the music suprivisor for the movie, so everybody pray for me!!! :-) And hopefully post-production isn't finished with getting all the songs for the movie, but if it is...maybe for the next one?! ooooh that would be awesome!!! I appreciate anyone helping getting the word out that could bring some attention about this, it definitely would help....so, please keep spreading the word...THANK YOU! I saw the video made on youtube, thanks! It's fun to see the Twilight photos with my music!! Here it is Much love, Janeen
 

Signed to f.Boo!!

 
I'm thrilled to announce that I have signed to indie label, f.Boo! We are in pre-production right now for an album written by yours truly and produced by Keven Brennan (he produced my songs "Rainy Day" and "Calloused Heart") Keven is brilliant and I couldn't be more excited to be signed with f. Boo and to work with Keven again!! So, stay tuned....the plan is to release this album this fall........will my 3rd album be finished before my second album is released? I don't know, we shall see. :-) I know that Tushar is working hard and it's going to be amazing, whenever it's released! It will be a different flavor anyway....because it's not just my album it's Janeen Leah and Tushar Parte! So, I guess technically it's not my second album, it's OUR first album and this album with f. Boo will be MY 2nd album! If you want to get technical. :-) Well, I just wanted to give you all this exciting news flash! Check out http://www.fboo.com for the press release and more info on f.Boo!

Support Me on SellaBand.com

 
Buzz is being generated about a new website called SellaBand. Band's and artist's can now have their fans support their careers in a very direct way. Fans can invest in the artist or band that they believe will make it. They now have the power to chose who they want to hear make an album! Gone will be the days of the major labels deciding if we will like it or not!! Music fans can buy a 'share' or 'part' in the artist. When the artist/band gets up to a certain amount then that amount is put toward studio time for the artist to make an album. Go to my page on the site and learn how to become a 'believer'. Go to http://www.sellaband.com/janeenleah/ I appreciate the support so much! Janeen

Radio Play on Radio Fedra 106.8 Mhz in Serbia

 
My songs are now being aired on Radio Fedra 106.8 Mhz in Serbia! Interesting background on the station: Radio Fedra (est. 1998) is the first radio sation in Serbia that is in the property of an NGO (Fedra Foundation). Milosevic’s regime closed (1999-2000) our radio for political reasons because we were fighting for democracy. After his fall, we reopened the radio station and since then our mission is to help the democratization of our country. The radio station is organized by approximately 30 volunteers that realize the program in 7 languages that are used in this area. The service zone include 3 million potential listeners. Radio Fedra in its special show called ”Promophone” present musicians from all over the world who make music of good quality, but who are not well known in Serbia. Visit http://www.fedraradio.org.yu Pretty cool, huh? -Janeen
