Jeannie in January / Bio

Hey...Welcome to my world ( page :). It's great to be here on ReverbNation! Please pause long enough to listen to my songs, and if you like them, become a fan...

I am still fairly new at recording music. For the past ten or so years, I have worked as a singer/DJ and writing instructor, living a dual lifestyle. I even have two names, but that's another story... I have always loved to write and sing songs. But it has only been recently — during the past few years — that I have been serious about writing and recording. Now, finally, I am living the dream — but only with the help of my multi-talented son, Chad Allen Garrett (Check out his page on ReverbNation!). Chad has an amazing talent for songwriting and music composition , as well singing, and I have an aptitude for writing and singing, so we work together really well.

Currently, I am focused on songs that could be classified as Americana — with heavy to light hints of blues, rock, and country — depending on the song. Simply stated, I love all kinds of music. Throughout my life, I have been immensely influenced by Janis Joplin — the Queen of rock/blues. I am also inspired by Etta James, Stevie Nicks, Grace Slick, and Susan Tedeschi. Favorite male artists include B.B. King, Bobby Bland, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and John Lennon . . . peace.
