"Praise for Janesville's First C.D."

"... a cool mix of country and blues, with a solid believable vocal performance that grabs just the right amount of sarcasm and sincerity... great blues edged guitar sound (and performance) and the dry, up-front vocal sound is compelling and right in line with current commercial releases." - Taxi 2008

"More Praise for Janesville's Debut C.D."

Looking for a Cowboy, by Janesville (Brundoggle Music). Country.

Chicago's Torreya Lyn Hamilton and Owen Cooper--part of the dynamic arts community at LaSalle Street Church--have rolled out a debut that kicks dust all over pop-country cliches and exudes charm, melody and 1970s-style country joy. Hamilton's voice proves a buttery blend of sweetness and sass. Her and Cooper's songs have indelible melodies and a storytelling structure. "Linda Lou" weaves the tale of a woman who gives all--perhaps too much--for those around her; in "The Bruno Song" Hamilton extols the virtues of her canine over those of her cheatin' man. - Lou Carlozo, 2008

"Praise for Janesville Live"

This solid country band is a recent arrival on the Chicago scene. Fronted by Torri Hamilton, whose strong and versatile voice resembles a stronger and fuller Kasey Chambers, Janesville pays tribute to classic country and ventures into more modern alt-country as well. Fine guitar work and supporting vocals by Owen Cooper (a veteran of many Chicago Bands, including the Lifters, Chicago Calling and others combine to give this band great versatility and a great sound. Definitely worth checking out. --2005 - Centerstage Chicago
