ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jan is an award-winning songwriter and singer who has performed her music from Canada to Calabria.

A two-time winner of the Kerrville (TX) Folk Festival “New Folk” award for songwriting, Jan has been featured on National Public Radio’s A Prairie Home Companion, hosted by Garrison Keillor, American Music Shop on The Nashville Network, and on many local television and radio programs.

“A traffic-stopping voice,” says folk legend and songwriter Rosalie Sorrells. “A voice like a silk handkerchief and lyrics sharp as spike heels,” noted the Louisville (KY) Courier-Journal. “A master of the musical expression of her soul,” said the Kerrville Daily Times.

Jan toured nationally with Pieces of 8, an eight-member a cappella vocal group, and appears on their CD Hook, Line & Sinker, released in 1998. In 2000, Jan was featured on Suite 16, an album of St. Louis songwriters, and her songs are also featured in several CDs produced by KDHX-FM.

A member of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra Chorus, Jan specializes in entertainment for senior populations in the St. Louis and Illinois metro areas. An expert whistler, she also leads D’Jazz Club, a jazz trio featuring the music of Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday.

In 2007, Jan was commissioned to write an original song in tribute to Dr. Peter Raven, Director of the Missouri Botanical Garden, in honor of his thirty-fifth anniversary as head of this institution.
