“(Janet) sings in a clear, crisp voice that recalls Judy Collins. Her folk-pop compositions are catchy and melodic…” Seth Rogovoy, Berkshire Eagle
“Her latest album Things That Fall From The Sky, uses upbeat pop and Appalachian and Cajun hooks to fuel her thoughtful examinations of relationships and distractions from our dreams. And her serious song about eating disorders (Calories) manages to inspire without preaching.”
Dallas Morning News
