The buzz and anticipation surrounding Brooklyn-based artist Janita (pronounced YA-nee-tuh) is as unsurprising as it is palpable. Standing room only concerts and sold out festivals in the United States and Europe have cemented her reputation as an electrifying singer-songwriter and an artist whose breakthrough moment has arrived. "Janita mesmerizes…(She) remains an artist who sticks to her personal creative vision without having to rely too heavily on her outer appearance or what's trendy. Her distinctive vocals are her stand-out asset, ranging between an edgier Feist and a softer Florence Welch," declares Paste Magazine. Billboard Magazine simply proclaims, "This woman's got the goods. Stardom awaits." Critical acclaim fused with commercial success may be rare in the music world, but this happy combination is not only Janita's norm, it has fueled what is indeed her breakthrough moment: the Deluxe-Edition release of her new album, Didn't You, My Dear?, now available worldwide on ECR Music Group. Janita's ten-concert, nine-city 2016 West Coast Tour begins August 22nd and ends September 3rd, in advance of the October 6th debut of her artist residency at The Bowery Electric in New York City .
