"Andy Glass"

...I've been waiting for this one. I haven't forgotten the first impression this very talented vocalist and songwriter made on me. Janie's voice is still unforgettable. The lyrics are brilliant and the songs drift like jewels across a shimmering sea of musical anticipation... - The Music Paper

"Arts in the News/Jim Sullivan"

..a familiar face on the folk and rock scene...her career is beginning to take flight...Barnett appeared on Saturday Night Live as a backup vocalist for Rickie Lee Jones - ironically enough, a singer with whom she was oft compared to in her Boston days. - The Boston Globe

"DIY News Headlines"

Textured harmonies and silky acoustic guitars put you in a trance...delicious story songs... - Good Times

"Independents' Day"

...the supercool talents of Janie Barnett...a delicious tension, as unnerving as a gossamer spider's web....hot, hip, sophisticated and jazzy compositions sometimes smolder, sometimes burn, but at all times tug at the deep nerves...I'm left breathless and dying to hear more. - The Music Paper

My gigs are interactive, due to the story-telling nature of the songs and talk. Musically - layered textures beyond the simplicity of "folk" concerts, stories beyond the Americana world, intimate, intricate, funny. Solo, duo, or larger groups are all part of the norm for myself and the colleagues I've listed as occasional band members. Due to my years as a freelance singer, songwriter, producer, and arranger, surprise guests - friends and colleagues in the business - will often sit in on my gigs. My career has run the gamut - from Saturday Night Live with Rickie Lee Jones, session work for major jingle houses, record dates with Chris Botti, to Club Pasim as a solo artist.
