Moon Songs

by Janet LaBelle

"Singer/songwriter Janet LaBelle delivers five supremely nice, captivating, and harmonic songs on this tasty little EP CD. “The Moon is Ours” starts things on a pleasantly upbeat and melodic note, the smoothly rocking “Not Tonight” bumps along to a perfectly catchy and bouncy country-tinged shuffle, and the beautifully meditative “What the World Looked Like” hits the gently lulling and moving spot. LaBelle’s sweet voice and sharp and thoughtful songwriting make for a strong and impressive double whammy. The tuneful and neatly eclectic arrangements skillfully run the gamut from lively pop rockers to more low-key and reflective ballads. A fine and affecting gem. "

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Janet LaBelle Releases Sophomore EP Moon Songs

New York-based indie folk artist Janet LaBelle fuses literary tropes with vintage roots to bring her latest EP to a new definition of classic

LaBelle demonstrates on her new album, Moon Songs, that she is no rookie when it comes to songwriting. Bred from the gritty indie punk scene of New Jersey, LaBelle gained early success as frontwoman of her band, Avery. In her latest album, LaBelle transfers her ability to create catchy yet emotionally charged songs of her younger years into polished multilayered arrangements filled with dynamic melodies.

Moon Songs is a stylistically diverse yet cohesive album that demonstrates LaBelle’s ability to cross genres, while staying true to her pop sensibilities. LaBelle gives a nod to a variety of influential musical styles ranging from the 1960s beach party vibe of “The Moon Is Ours” to the country-driven shuffle of “Not Tonight.” Each song resonates with a classic pop style, while her lyrical honesty flows in the vein of similar modern songstresses such as Aimee Mann, Fiona Apple, and Jenny Lewis. LaBelle’s love for literature is evident throughout the album as each “moon song” is strung together by reoccurring themes and images.

Recorded on two coasts, Moon Songs began production in New Jersey and was completed in Santa Monica, California. Working alongside producer Evan Taylor and guitarist Kyle Cadena, LaBelle was able achieve her vision for the album. Moon Songs has been described as a compelling collection of songs, an album that sets LaBelle apart from the average singer/songwriter, and establishes her as an innovative and exciting up-and-coming artist.

LaBelle currently resides in New York City where she performs regularly.
