Janet Martin

A native of Richmond Virginia, and forever an east coaster Janet spends her time there when not touring Europe or the United States. When not on the road Janet can usually be found writing and in the recording studio.In June a new CD “Live on Mulberry Street” was released to coincide with her 2011 overseas tour which included Germany & France. Her previous CD “Passage” was released in 2010 to crit...ical acclaim both in America and on the European continent. “Passage” was a huge success in Europe receiving airplay in more than 12 different countries in Europe and Scandinavia. She has also earned high praise from the European musical press.
Janet is currently writing new material for another studio recording to begin in early 2012.
Janet honed her guitar skills at an early age with a wide range of influences from acoustic flat-picking to electric guitar styles including bottleneck slide to name a few.
A whole new world opened up when she began listening to Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page’s use of open tunings. Janet’s acoustic sound today is due in large part to her love of open tunings.
The flat picking prowess she possesses, along with her love of rock 'n roll, sets her apart from most guitar players;Janet sounds like no other player, male or female.
Her love of the blues led her to Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters. Today Janet is a fiery showman on stage as she sets it ablaze with her black Telecaster stinging out red hot blues licks from her shiny metal slide.
Her love of the radio and classic rock led her to a songwriting style that is unique to her. She is a multi-published writer with over 30 original songs copyrighted and administered through BMI.

As good a guitar player as she is, she’s an equally strong vocalist. Be it a soulful ballad or a blues rocker, Janet delivers dead on the money. See her live; she's the real thing!
