She is also a singer/songwriter with her own band with which she has one Album; Strength, Wisdom and Growth, a freshly released EP called Passion with the second album released in January 2015. Seductive, Soulful, Smouldering..... Janine Johnson’s stunning new EP ‘Passion’ is a collection of classy and thought provoking tracks that convey a universal message of love, passion and loss.
Janette Mason (keys)
Even without knowing it, there’s a fair chance if you’ll have heard Janette’s special musical touch time and again - on many albums from Ian Shaw to Robert Wyatt, live in concert with Oasis plus her contributions to movie and TV soundtracks.
A talented composer and arranger, she was recently commissioned to write the score for feature film, The Calling, contributed four arrangements to Ian Shaw’s album, Drawn to all Things, and produced and arranged Lea DeLaria’s current Warner Brothers release, The Live Smoke Sessions, which made the Grammy ballot.
As a Jazz musician, she has been a seminal figure on the British Jazz scene for the last fifteen years, sharing the stage with Mornington Lockett, Julian Siegel and many more.
