Janice Kephart / Bio

Spoken word song artist (both vocals and lyrics) collaborating with Grammy winners and nominees. On the ballot for consideration for nomination in spoken word category for album Kamasutra and as Track 1, Disc 2 of the United Nations' album Action Moves People with Curious Girl.

Janice's poetry and vocal style have been compared to Jim Morrison and Enya. Her artistry to Kate Bush and her music as cutting-edge as Kraftwerk.

About her new album Kamasutra (May 2016), Kephart says: "Ricky Kej’s majestically sensual compositions featured on this album (2015 Grammy winner for Best New Age album) were an auditory canvas for both my written and vocal style of chill spoken songs. The five tracks that feature new music written and performed by world trip hop artists Green Man (Ken Eros and April Theriault) thrill me every time I listen to them,” says Kephart of Kamasutra. "The sound is impeccable, as Ken Eros (a two time Grammy nominee for sound engineering) doubled as my producer, while four time Grammy winner and seven time nominee, Gavin Lurssen, did the mastering. This album is the best I have ever done. I wonder if this is the best artist I can be, but the hard work and auditory result of this album also makes me feel limitless! I have eternal gratitude for the gift of Kamasutra.”

JULY 2014: Museboat Radio playing singles "Cherry Whispers" and "Synchronicity".

Written work (2011, 'Love in Three Parts') published by Alabaster & Mercury and nominated for a Pushcart Poetry Award for both content and presentation. 'Undone Tears' EP, from which 'Rain', 'Sun', 'Moon', 'Cloud' and 'Wind' appear, has been singled out for recommendations for radio play by both independent radio stations and CD Baby. 'Rain Dance' was the longest running dance track in the top ten on ShoutDrive.com for four months, playing alongside the mega artists. 'Cherry Whispers' features Jake Hook, who is a multi-platinum producer in the UK, and EMI songwriter, (with a gorgeous voice). 'Where Icicles Grow in the Sun' plays on internet radio, as well as 'Mermaid's Song'.
