Bio

Janna Marit's music creates an atmosphere for the imagination to fill. Her songs feel like a vacation from the serious– even as the lyrics get around to serious stuff – sometimes sweetly hopeful, sometimes pointedly indicting the obtuse habits of humanity.

Janna traveled down many creative roads on her way to making music. Prior to embarking on song writing in 2003, Janna performed as a puppeteer, and as an actor in film and live sketch comedy. She is also a visual artist who draws, paints and makes jewelry. She wrote her first poem at the age of 6, and first musical composition at the age of 10. "It was a short classical avant-garde piano piece with some nice juicy dark parts and light happy moments that I was very proud of. I came across the only existing recording of it a few years ago but it was destroyed in a fire the following week. So, sadly I have no record of my first song. I still have that poem somewhere though."

As a songwriter she is inclined to look beyond the surface, picking up rocks to see what lies beneath– at the same time remaining joyfully buoyant.
"I think the darkness is very interesting, the things we're afraid to look at. We might benefit to travel down those murky alleys more often. I also celebrate the sun, the trees, the great potential of the human being. We are really more powerful than we generally know. We create our world, our reality all the time. Far too often we create and re-create what we say we don't want. It's much easier to do that than to clear a space in your mind for the mystery and the pure possibility of life to unfold within."
