This, That, or the Other
1. Underground OR Mainstream? Underground. It’s where mainstream gets its inspiration from.

2. Maintain Artistic Integrity and Vision OR Make a lot of Money? (OR Both)??? Both would be nice, but if I had to choose…I’d rather be a starving artist than a miserable, suicidal, manufactured, hit-making machine.

3. Studio OR Stage? Both. I want to have my cake and eat it too.

4. Spirituality OR Hedonism? Spirituality.  It can be hedonistic.

5. Make Love, Have Sex, OR %$*!? All of the above.

Fill in the Blank
6. Music is my salvation.
7. I’m musically inspired by people, places, events, dreams, and shiny objects.
8. If I could have made any music video it would have been “Her Morning Elegance” by Oren Lavie.                                              
9. If I was a super hero I’d be Vampirella.                                                       
10. Sex, Drugs, and Rock & Roll should change to Sex, Wine, and Indie Music.  

Short Answer
11. I make music because:  It’s how I express the things I can’t express in a normal conversation.  It gives me a voice to say what others can’t say or don’t dare to say and it allows me to connect and bond with others no matter how different we may be.

12. I want my fans to:  Escape reality with my music, be inspired to embrace their individuality, and make positive choices in their lives.

13. If I could only share one thing about myself it would be:  I have slight OCD.

14. Wild Card!  Please kill the auto-tuner.

15. I want my musical legacy to be:  To be remembered as an innovative, fearless, outspoken female who inspired others to progress, evolve, and shift their consciousness.

The music video Janid wishes she would have made!
