Alternative, Soul & Rock Chanteuse Returns with Highly Anticipated New Project
NASHVILLE, TN (August 3, 2010) -- Renowned NYC independent label, Engine Company Records, will make its catalog exclusively available to global radio via the AirPlay Direct platform, starting with its newest worldwide release, Haunted, by International recording artist, Janita.
Billboard has stated about Janita: "This woman's got the goods. Stardom awaits."
On the heels of her most commercially successful release to date, Janita returns with her highly anticipated new album, Haunted. The latest in an already acclaimed discography, Haunted is helmed by an artist with the courage and determination to evolve - not only out of artistic desire, but personal necessity.
“We are pleased to welcome Engine Company Records and Janita to our service,” states AirPlay Direct CEO, Robert Weingartz. “Janita’s music and fiercely independent artistic integrity embodies the spirit of our company. We look forward to working with Engine Company Records on her project, and their future releases.”
Before moving to Brooklyn as a seventeen-year old, Janita (pronounced YA-nee-tuh) had already been a superstar outside of the United States. In her native Finland she was a national icon, the premiere recording artist on radio and television, awash with awards, constant touring and commercial success. She enjoyed a historic and pioneering career, all while still a teenager. She was quickly signed by Sony after moving to New York, capitalizing on her international celebrity. Her eponymous debut was followed by 2001's I'll Be Fine and 2006's Seasons Of Life, the latter scoring her two Top-40 hits on the U.S. Charts.
At its core, Haunted embodies the journey of an artist focused not on the ghosts of her past, but on the possibilities of her future - one of her own fashioning, and one that for the first time, now belongs to her. A future of hope and promise, and she invites her listeners to join her.
