When you first see her, you might expect the performance to match the pretty, petite, and gentle natured person. Then she sits at a piano, and suddenly nothing is what you might expect. The powerhouse performances of this 5'1, 100 pound woman will resonate the chords of your very soul. No one hears her play without being profoundly affected. Her songs are broad and sweeping and take hearts soaring while also relaying a grace that leaves listeners with a sense of peace and well being.
JanElaine's debut CD, Threads in the Tapestry has driving rhythms of songs like "Life" that pull you through seasons of conflict and resolution, and quiet waltzes like "Dolphins Playing" that sit you on a beach on a warm summer day. The whole of the project is masterfully woven and reflects multi-dimensional threads of the eclectic tapestry of JanElaine's own experiences. She's peaceful yet powerful — and always diverse.
Inspiring, visual, uplifting.
OK- it is true I co-produced and performed on this project with JanElaine- but as a listener I am continually impressed everytime I cue this CD up on my player! I have worked with many, many artists and musicians over the years, but I have to say that this project is the most unique, heart-felt and inspiring piece of work I have had the pleasure of being a part of. Musically , JanElaine takes the listener on journey after journey into visual vistas that at times takes one's breath away, then goes deep within to unearth the secrets of one's own soul. Combining thought-provoking poetry and recitation with such powerful sonic splendor is a double whammy of visceral and spiritual stimulation- and the listener is left with a strong sense of satisfaction. Highly recommended!

An Eclectic Melodious blend of New Age and Classical Symphony.
Threads in the Tapestry is an eclectic blend of new age and classical symphony. The artist presents a surprising mosaic of light and dark texture and tempo, and brings a fresh originality to this genre of music. The melodies are rich and haunting. The occasional whispered lyrics are intriguing. Threads in the Tapestry is a new and exciting addition, and will set a tandard for modern instrumentalists to come.
