Janey Street – (I’m Not) The Girl I Used to Know: Janey Street is an American singer and songwriter born and raised in New York City. As an artist, she’s recorded several albums in her early career for Warner Brothers / Reprise, Capitol Records and also for Arista Records under the guidance of legendary music mogul Clive Davis. She’s spent many years on the road playing small clubs and 20,000-seat venues through out the US and Canada. She opened for the Bee Gees, Richie Havens, and John Hammond Jr., to name a few. Perhaps most well-known is her single “Under The Clock,” which was a Billboard Top 20 A/C hit, as well as receiving rotation on VH1.
Though her career started at a young age, she has never stopped her prolific output. Aside from being a solo artist, her songs have also been recorded by such artists as the famous blues singer Ruth Brown (on the Grammy-nominated CD, A Good Day for the Blues), Janis Ian (a track Street produced and also co-wrote with Ian), Eric Anderson, Dutch artist Judith (Holland), Japanese artist Maria, and others. On the screen her songs have been included in the animated picture Food Fight, and multiple tv shows like The Young and the Restless and One Life to Live.
Here in 2016 she has released her album, My Side of Paradise, on Blue Élan Records. Produced by Grammy-nominated producer Dave Darling, the album is a diverse collection of songs that showcase Janey’s timeless songwriting chops, her thoughtful, vulnerable lyrics, and of course an adventurous sort of production that is a contemporary nod to classic Americana Pop.
