The spirited and vivacious Janet Planet has been self-produced and managed for the majority of her 35-year career. Described as a “sultry vocalist with a vast repertoire of jazz, blues, and
standards…with some Bob Dylan thrown in for good measure” by New York Magazine, she’s the winner of six WAMI awards and a member of the WAMI Hall Of Fame.
