Still working on that hot first release.



Singer/Songwriter, Multi-Instrumentalist, Janet Cruz combines old world conviction with new world sentiment in her debut EP "Better Now", a journey of self discovery for the everyday jungle monkey trapped in the big, scary world of uncertainty and self-doubt.

Combining driving beats, melodic guitars and dreamy rock instrumentation with sweet vocal harmony, the music fits snugly somewhere between the Alternative Pop styling of Imogen Heap and the Folk inspired Adult Contemporary of Edie Brickell & The New Bohemians. The songs are soothing, while lyrically pragmatic, uplifting and whimsical.

The album opens up retrospectively (March of Time), journeys into celebration of youth (Better Now) and ancestry (You are a Child, Creation), while it searches for the strength of will (Write or Die, Standard Lame) and ultimately attains acceptance and faith (Roger That).

A testament to her upbringing in Chicago as a first generation Filipino-American, Janet’s debut speaks to the hearts of many who have left everything behind to chase impossible dreams of happiness. Inspired by music and poetry from the hearts and souls of the world’s underdogs, “Better Now” takes you back to that moment in your childhood when life made perfect sense and reminds you to hang on to that memory forever.
