Greetings!

I am thrilled that we've almost finished recording my first album, which began in a land far far away (called Los Angeles). We're currently in a studio in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest cutting final tracks like clarinet, mandolin, banjo, harp and vocals...!

My music is a little bit circusy cabaret, with flavors of old style jazz, maybe even a splash of folk. "Unique", "charming" and "unusual" are words I have often heard.

“Janna Marit's music creates an atmosphere for the imagination to fill. Her songs feel like a vacation from the serious – even as the lyrics get around to serious stuff – sometimes sweetly hopeful, sometimes pointedly indicting the obtuse habits of humanity.”

We're just about ready to jump into mixing, mastering and manufacturing! 

That's where you come in.. 

I've set a goal for the minimum I need to finish the project, and I've come up with several very cool rewards (including artwork created by me!), for your donation to help fund the album. 

Please take a look and help me makes this dream come true!!

Thank You!!

Janna Marit
