    Growing up in Queens, New York, Janey Street tasted fame just out of high school on Arista Records, after being signed by legendary executive Clive Davis. Two of her singles, “Under The Clock” and “Say Hello To Ronnie,” had charted onBillboard.

    A few years later, though, she scuffled for work in Southern California; whether writing music for movies or painting houses, she did what she had to do to get by. Later, persuaded by her longtime friend Janis Ian to move to Nashville, she mentored young songwriters, gave house concerts, opened one memorable night for Levon Helm at The Ramble at The Barn in Woodstock, NY…and painted a few more houses, waitressed and even performed as a clown for hire.

    She kept writing and recording too. The songs for her album, ‘In My Own Skin’, came quickly as her always acute observations of life translated into her reinvigorating creative process. “In fact, I wouldn’t even describe my writing as a process,” Street insists. “It’s more about capturing a moment. I’m extremely spontaneous. I don’t think about it. It took me only three minutes to write ‘Under The Clock.’ I just sat in my kitchen in Hermosa Beach and boom! It just came out.”

    Street’s music is solidly crafted, with roots in retro R&B, rock ’n’ roll and multiple other genres. Her lyrics are timeless though flavored by current concerns. ‘In My Own Skin’ marks the next step in Street’s rebirth as an artist. Street goes on to say, “This record is more about reclaiming who I really am, writing and singing Janey Street songs.”

    No one does that better than her. This Street runs one way only, through secret neighborhoods of the heart and on toward new horizons. Get in gear, crank it up and join the ride.
